Serve party eats up retro style with TV dinner trays

FOOD STYLING BY HEATHER SHAW/JUDY INC. (WWW.JUDYINC.COM)

Whether you're having the gang over to watch the PVRed finale of Glee or the next season of True Blood, serve your party eats up, retro style, right in front of the tube.

Available at most kitchen supply stores, TV dinner trays are a fun and easy way to dish up deluxe, individually portioned meals to your viewing audience.

To fill those compartments, consider simple fare such as herbed roasted chicken accompanied by parsnip purée, a spinach salad, sautéed wild mushrooms and a hunk of cake for dessert. Not only does it stop stomachs from grumbling over the dialogue, but food is within arm's reach so no one has to take their eyes of Sookie and Bill.
