I've gotten a chuckle at some of the suggestions. This is a special party/picnic for 11-12 year old girls! For one in particular, it is a very special event. I don't know about you folks, but we always planned food for the age group of my daughter when having a birthday party/special occasion for her. Some of the stuff suggested would get a "turned up nose" reaction from most of that age group. Just something to consider.

Sorry Merlot. This has to be totally Kosher. Pork is a definite No No.

My kids had eaten squid with rice, calamari, escargot, frogs legs, etc., by the time they were 6 years old, and younger. It depends on the family. I made the mistake of promising that I would make them whatever meal they wanted on their birthday, figuring that it would be less costly than taking a pack of kids, with friends, to some fast food place. And then I taught them at a very early age what good food was. There were a few of those birthday meals that cost upwards of $70 to $90, for 6 people, and that was back in the 1980's.

But I agree that the food should be geared toward the person whose birthday is being celebrated. I did the same thing for my daughters when they got married. Everyone at the receptions had good food. But the bride and groom got special food, 5-star class food, especially as I was catering each reception. That helps hold the cost down, a little, but mostly, I did that so that my daughters, and their husbands knew that it was their day, and that I was giving them my best on that day.

Your daughter will appreciate that you planned the meal around her, and she will love you all the more for it.

So true. I can't count how many parties I have been to for a child, and it all about the grownups. What they will eat and drink. Most kids I know do not like raw onions or any food that is hot.

CharlieD. : CHICKEN & BEEF KEBABS ON SKEWERS

Good Evening Charlie,

Firstly, considering that your 12 year old daugher is going to be celebrating a bespoke & memorable moment, her first real major party and social event, in her life, such as non religious parents make, Sweet 16 parties or in South America and Latin America, a Quiñcena, for the 15th birthday of gals; a touch of something extraordinaire and special in elegance is needed ...

Hamburgers, hotdogs --- cool for a BBQ, however, squeeze in some:

KEBABS, chicken, beef or even lamb on skewers ! They make such a lovely statement ... They look stunning too with cherry tomatoes, and a piece of gold bell pepper or green bell or red bell, olives and onion on the grill BBq ...

Roast Chicken is always delicious as well ... and can be eaten at any temperature too ...


Serve with Shatta, a Yemenite Israeli Harissa Semi Piqante Chili Dip and Caesarean Port Relish ... and Ketchup or Eggplant Caponata -- a baked eggplant dip with capers, olives and tomato !

Kind regards and keep us posted.

Margi. Cintrano.
