- They may serve cold cuts, cheese and rolls. But they purchase specific amounts of sliced meats at the deli and arrange them on platters.
- They purchase ground beef and franks and hold a barbecue.
- Instead of buying ready made salads, they are making potato, pasta, and cabbage salads.
In our household, with a granddaughter graduating from high school, we're serving hamburgers and franks from the grill. My husband cooked a chicken in the smoker yesterday and we're slicing it on another platter. The other grandmother made salads yesterday. Our daughter did purchase a decorated cake with Kara's name written on it.As I looked around and asked around, I found more people were doing this and better keeping within their budgets. Yes, a few, because of a time crunch, are purchasing ready made, but many must watch the outflow of cash more carefully this year.
What are you doing for graduation parties?
