Meal Ideas for Special Family Dinner

>> Feb 4, 2016

The family dinner is important throughout the year, but it takes on special meaning during holidays or personal celebrations. These meals need to be a step above the ordinary everyday fare. They also need to please all ages, even the more finicky little ones. One can start planning by choosing what type of protein to use and go from there. Sitting down to a delicious dinner can be a wonderful way to connect with loved ones while celebrating those special events.


Turkey or chicken is a safe choice when preparing a holiday meal. It is traditional, and all ages can appreciate it. Poultry can be roasted or deep fried and then pared with sides such as mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, and a vegetable like green beans or roasted carrots. Cranberry sauce adds a nice tangy flavor in addition to these home style favorites. An added bonus to choosing poultry is that there are usually plenty of left overs that can be turned into soups or sandwiches the next day.


Beef is a category filled with options. Ground beef used for burgers or meatloaf can be a bit ordinary for a special occasion, but a nice roast will please even the little ones while offering something a little different from the every day. The best thing about a roast is that all the sides can be prepared in one pan with the meat. Add potatoes, carrots, and any other root vegetable to the roast before placing in the oven, roaster, or crockpot.

Seafood is a holiday favorite for many families. One can choose one certain type of seafood or opt for a buffet of several different choices. Lobster, fresh fish, shrimp, and oysters all complement each other for a nice buffet. Selecting fresh stone crab claws from an online provider such as Francesca’s Favorites makes the ideal main course. Use roasted potatoes with grilled onions and peppers as a side. Corn on the cob or roasted carrots with green beans are simple yet pleasing when served with seafood.

By preparing any one of these wonderful dinners for a special occasion or holiday, one can create a pleasant and delicious meal where everyone can sit down, relax, and connect with their loved ones. Each meal will provide the host, hostess, and guests with an amazing protein combined with the perfect sides to mark these special moments.
