On days like Father’s Day where you want to celebrate the father’s in your life, it might be extra tempting to pop in for a meal or invite family over
The next best thing is a drop-off-and-go lunch. Here are some great ideas for lunch you can prepare at home (with love) and drop off for a safe and responsible Father’s Day lunch.
It’s a special day- go all the way and include appetizers in your meal. Spoil dad with a snack-sized bite to get his appetite going and excite his taste buds.
Choose something he’ll like that isn’t too filling. A miniature version of his favourite sandwich could be great, but these easy party finger foods are a definite hit.
Considering the weather and the warm hugs we’re sending with every bite, a hearty and filling meal is the way to go for the main course. A rich and tasty soup brimming with goodness is a great idea. Package your soup in mason jars, it isn’t just a cute idea, it’s practical too.
Pack a loaf of Soda bread to enjoy with the soup. It’s quick and easy to make (compared to yeasted bread) and holds well for dipping and mopping up soup.
Dessert is literally both the icing and the cake. The point of this drop off lunch is to take care of dad, even though you aren’t there. So when you pack dessert, make sure you’ve packed the entire course. if you pack a pie to be served with custard you need to pack the custard too.
Themed cupcakes or iced sugar cookies could be a great dessert to send a specific message, as an edible card. But if you’re looking for something more accomplished, a warm fruit pie, creamy pudding or something homely make great winter desserts.
A flask of a special, warm homemade drink is the perfect finishing touch to your meal. Make sure your drinks will keep after reheating.
