Looking for inspiration.

Spagetti bolognase.

Its the one meal that everyone loves and asks for more of.

Macaroni cheese. I am veggie, DS is a pasta fiend, DH doesn't care, DMutt loves cheese sauce!

Pasta bolognese, cottage pie and chicken and veg pasta bake!

Roast.

Chicken pie.

Home-made pizza.

Roast dinner.

Nope. Cant think of one that everyone eats happily. What usually happens is three of us eats everything and one picks round the edges. Like it or lump it here.

Fajitas

Teriyaki chicken stir fry. My version of chicken risotto, which is more of a savoury rice with chicken and bacon. Spaghetti carbonara. A roast of some sort, with roast potatoes and veg. Creamy sausage pasta (an adaptation of a MN recipe). Steak. Spaghetti bolognese. They are OK with salad, with quiche or cold meat or pork pie. BBQ spare ribs (the Nigella recipe). BBQ chicken thighs and drumsticks (with BBQ sauce out of a bottle), with rice and sweetcorn. Chilli with nachos, guacamole, cheese and sour cream. Tortillas with chargrilled chicken, fried peppers and onions, sour cream, guacamole and cheese (everyone can choose what they want in the tortilla).

Hmm - that might have been easier posted as a list:

One vegetarian, one meat eater and one toddler here so not much! Lentil lasagna/bolognese, veggie enchiladas, homemade pizzas, something like fajitas where we can choose our own bits.

Roast dinner - that is the only thing that everyone eats without anyone moaning.

One or other of the dc will occasionally turn their nose up at one of the favourites, but usually, we all eat
Fish pie
Cottage/shepherd's pie
Pasta with pesto
Crispy things with rice
Risotto
Standard picnic (sandwiches, pork pies, scotch eggs etc)
Cheesey pasta

My dc can be a bit Jack Spratt at times, but with carbs/protein. So DD will eat all the chicken and DS all the pasta, or she'll be all about the fish ans he'll eat the chips. And they've swapped over wrt veggies. I'm sure it'll even out!

Roast chicken, roast potatoes, roast parsnip and carrots, bread stuffing (I don't eat the chicken and am more than happy with the rest)

MollyBdenum Thu 10-Jul-14 21:21:51

Meatballs

Fried eggs with bread (ordinary, French or garlic bread) and veg sticks

MollyBdenum Thu 10-Jul-14 21:22:23

And pizza.

No modifications
Spag bol,
Carbonara
Thai green curry
Commercial steak pie (If I make it I want to use the butchers steak and kidney mix and that's not allowed)
Shepherds pie (although DD2 avoids the cheese).
Any variation of breaded chicken and chips
Roast.

Sausages and mash
Meatballs

Even with these DD2 avoids any green accompanying veg.

Stir fry, fajitas and anything containing fish, prawns, mushrooms, peppers, green veg, salad, cream sauce, tomatoe sauce on the wrong thing or blackbean sauce has to be modified for DD2 and DH prefers to avoid fish too.

Drives me nuts, DD2 and foid is the one thing about family life I could have done without.
