Having 5 of my friends over for dinner and drinks next Friday - any ideas on what to cook? I am not a great chef but am willing to try anything - they will forgive me if it is not a perfect effort grin. I don't really have anything I am good at making so need ideas please!

Get ready made fresh pasta that only needs dunking in boiling water for 5 mins, a pot of pasta sauce that you can microwave, a bag of bistro salad, a nice dressing and some garlic bread. Beautiful and all done in 10 mins! And buy one of those fecking great parmesan graters to look really impressive!

You could avoid cooking pretty much altogether and just do a couple of baked Camemberts, lots of good bread, celery, radishes, tiny roasted new potatoes etc. With wine to drink and chocolate fondant and raspberries and cream to follow, I think that would make for a very happy supper!

DS has just made us Waitrose's recipe of Goulash Meatballs, tasty and simple (easy enough for an under confident 19 year old to do on his own)
