Friends, do you invite all age groups into your home for dinner?

Most of the young people I know, outside of their family, do not invite older people over for dinner. It’s true, we often mingle with families with similar interests and age groups to our kids’. But branching out for a multi-generational meal can be a huge blessing!

And a whole lot of fun!

We’ve hosted multi-generational dinners for years, and one of my favorite memories was cooking an 80th birthday dinner for one of the doctors I used to work for. He and his wife got to invite 2 other couples along, so we had a party for 8!

Our doc friend LOVES chocolate and coffee, so this Affogato Chocolate Ice Cream & Italian Espresso Dessert was the ultimate (easy) dessert to make.

Usually it’s made with vanilla ice cream, but we love to change it up and serve it with homemade chocolate ice cream.

You can buy a premium espresso powder and keep it on hand for this dessert recipe. We also take this powder camping!

Later, our friends told us how appreciative they were of our dinner invites over the years, that it had been years since they were invited into young people’s homes. This was shocking to us, because these people were so delightful, with so much wisdom and so many great stories!

Mixing up our guest list + wisdom of life experiences gave us a little dose of mature LOVE. Just ust what we needed!

So, back to this amazing dessert, last week we made this again for our dinner guests.

Alder (our new Whoodle puppy) was trying his best to take a “lick” :)

Enjoy more summer nights, Friends! We have weeks of summer ahead of us!

  1. Sounds yummy! We have always loved having a variety of ages around the dinner table. When we were youth pastors, our home was always filled with young people, and as we transitioned out of that we also tried to fill our home with every age group. There is so much each generation has to offer.
