Some cities are still on lockdown and some have eased up. But it shouldn’t stop us from getting together with our family and friends virtually.
We know it’s not the most ideal situation but it’s what we have for now.

You can still go online and host a virtual summer party with your family and friends.
Sometimes, we just want to sit back and indulge every once in a while. And we want to do with the people we love and trust, our family and closest friends.
“With social distancing in effect, it’s not always possible to give or get a hug. For many, food has been a stand-in for hugs. Savory foods, sweet foods, decadent foods and simple foods that comfort and console,” Cirrus Wood wrote for Berkeleyside Nosh.
So, what are the rules? How do you host a virtual summer party?
If you all live in the same town, you can set a specific dish for each person or family and have it sent to the other guests on the day of the party.
Or if you live in different cities, you can send easy and delicious recipes. Everyone can cook what they want and you can eat it together virtually.
Sound good to you? Great!
But what about the recipes, you ask. Well, we don’t want to leave you hanging and we’ve got the perfect recipes for your summer party!
And the best part about these recipes?
They’re so easy to make with ingredients that you already have in your home. How great is that?
First things first, check your pantry and kitchen for the ingredients. These recipes use the most basic ingredients so you should have them already.
These ingredients include:
- black pepper
- soy sauce
- baking powder
- ground beef
- bread crumbs
- white onion
Pretty sure you have those, right?
And then, if you don’t have some of the ingredients for whichever recipe you decide to cook, you can have it delivered to you. Or whichever way you get your groceries.
Of course, not everyone you invited will have the same skill level of cooking. Maybe you can assign the recipes according to beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
We know this is extra work (and extra stress) for you but if your guest attempts to cook a dish that’s beyond their skill level, it might backfire. They might get frustrated and not even attend at all.
If you decide to stick to the recipes in this video, then you can probably divide it like this.
- Fried Cheese Skewers
- Deep-Fried Onion
- Micro Beef Kebabs
- Micro Beef Kebabs
- Hot Dog Patches In A Frying Pan
- Batter Fried Crispy Sausages
- Deep-Fried Egg White Balls
- Mini Lula Kebab In Dough
- Beef Jerky
What do you think? Is this a good distribution of recipes?
Of course, be prepared to answer any questions they may have. You’ll need to be patient. But it’s necessary so that everyone can have a great time during your party.
And even if some of them fail at the cooking, reassure them that it’s not the food that’s important but their company at the party.
Are you ready to have fun, lockdown-style?
