‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for The Parkway Senior Living’s culinary team to get creative for each day of festivities. As residents, family, and friends join around the table. We’ll embark on a delectable adventure. It started with the iconic partridge in a pear tree and ended with the drummers drumming. Each day will be a culinary experience that truly captures the essence of the holiday season. Every unique dish tells tales of tradition, celebration, and the spirit of togetherness.
My favorite of the 12 Days of Christmas is day seven, with seven swans a swimming. I am making one of my favorite dishes, Ahi tuna tacos. This may also be the most challenging day as it will require me to get the residents to try something new.
The residents seem to enjoy day eight and eight maids a milking the most. They love the fancy milkshakes we mix for them. The staff go for the themed Happy Hours. Day 12 is all about special, seasoned drumsticks in honor of the twelve drummers drumming.
If I could change any of the 12 Days, it would be the return of the specialty drink we had last year.
Day ten’s creative twist on popcorn reminds me of our family tradition of getting Topsy popcorn during the holidays. My family does a Secret Santa gift exchange. I would love to do that with the residents.
The culinary team is immersed in the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth that truly brings our community together. The 12 Days of Christmas has allowed the team to explore the diverse and vibrant spectrum of flavors that make this season truly magical. Here’s to a season filled with the warmth of friendship, the sparkle of joy, and the lingering tastes of the 12 Days of Christmas. Until next year, when we get the opportunity to use our creative flare once again, “Happy Holidays!”
