Entertaining Friends Party Menus

Presidential Debate Dinner Menu

Record numbers of people watched the 2016 Presidential Debate last night. Living on the west coast means that the debate started at 6:00 p.m. – dinner time in our home. To pay homage to all presidents past and future, to celebrate that we live in a country where the candidates can and do debate publicly, I created a Presidential Debate Dinner menu.

Coming home from work and having a couple of friends join us for debate watching meant that I needed a quick and easy menu. The fact that it was also 101 degrees outside meant that the oven and stove were staying off. Thinking all-American – it was a hot dogs and apple pie kind of meal.

  • Assorted grilled sausage. I picked up four types of sausage to be grilled.
  • Two types of fresh buns
  • Assorted mustards and condiments
  • Wedge Salad topped with both blue cheese and balsamic vinaigrette (blue and red toppings)
  • Apple pie (Purchased from bakery  – I wasn’t not turning on the oven)

And to get the night started

Here is my Presidential Debate Dinner menu that we enjoyed while watching the 2016 Presidential Debate featuring blue martinis and grilled sausage.

This was a quick and easy meal so that the focus of the night could be debate watching. We were a very quiet crowd so we could actually listen and hear what was being said.

I am left with a question. Does Donald Trump really pay zero Federal taxes? I am thankful for all the tax-paying workers that help pay the wages of our military, police and fire. Last week, my school was on a semi-lock down. Within minutes our campus was covered in police making sure that our 600 students were safe. Last night, while we watched the debate, fire fighters were battling a huge blaze visible from our home. I am very thankful for those that keep us safe.  I am also thankful for the many teachers like myself that work everyday to educate children and create better communities for all of us.

This is not a political post. You can tell from my drinks that I am with Hillary. But more importantly, go out and vote. Let your voice be heard at the polls.

What would you add to a Presidential Debate Dinner Menu?

  1. that’s wonderful idea. I will do that on next debate. I think on Oct 9th.

      And we even get to experience a third debate on Oct 19!

  2. Educate yourself on all four candidates and then go vote! As soon as I saw your drink selections, I knew that you’re with “her.” It’s a clever little touch to add that hint.

    1. Stacey says:

      Great words of advice! Learn where the candidates stand and go and vote. We are lucky to have this right!

  3. It’s nice that you can have dinner with friends and family with all of the chaos around you. The lockdown, the fire and the politics I’m sure it was a welcome evening to hang out with friends, even if you did watch the debate. Won’t it be nice when this is over?

      This election season has been like none before! It was nice to sit with friends and watch the debate. We are so over the chaos in our small town. The fire is still burning and making all the big news shows. Hopefully it will be contained by Monday. We need some rain!

  4. This is a great menu to serve at a party or gathering. Simple and easy, which allows the hostess to actually spend time chatting with the guests!

    1. Stacey says:

      After a work day – I need quick and easy, but delicious is equally important.

  5. Stacey, such a great menu. I love that you offered two different choices of everything. All of that blue cheese on that wedge of lettuce has my mouth watering.

      I love blue cheese! The dinner was easy and yummy.
