Hello lovely people! I need your help. Last year my lovely grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, crazy right? That’s more than twice as many years as I’ve lived so far. But they made it, and we celebrated with the family and had a lovely time. However, I haven’t delivered our (mine and Daniel’s) present yet! Our present was a 5 course meal, but with me being in England practically all of the time, we haven’t come round to actually hosting this dinner yet. I want to make it amazing, like really really good, because they’re the most incredible grandparents anyone could wish for and they’ve supported me throughout my whole life. I also want to make it amazing, because I want everyone to think that I cook good food. More the former reason though, I want to show them my love and appreciation, and Daniel will help me to do this.
Now, there’s one slight problem, but no real hinderance, my granddad suffers from diabetes, so as far as my understanding of this goes, this means that it shouldn’t involve any sugars and not too many carbs. I’ve got some ideas lined up, but I’m struggling a little bit, especially with dessert, since he can’t even have an awful lot of fruit!
This is where I could do with your help! Not only would it be great if you could recommend diabetic-friendly desserts, but also I’d love to hear your tried and tested dinner party food (i.e. delicious and elegant food), that would you cook to show your love and appreciation?
