This week I will be home from work one evening at 6pm and need to be able to feed the family, i.e.DH, two DSs, 10 & 12 plus my mother (78) her sister and her brother! It's a family reunion thing though this isn't the celebratory meal iyswim, but it will be the first and only time I will have all 3 over here.
As I am working late, I need to cook in advance and I am wondering whether to do the above for them, plus a dessert. Or with 3-colour rice instead of the bread. DH will be home at 5.30 so can get the show on the road before I get in.
Erebus, I think that sounds lovely and perfectly fine for the occasion. If you are looking for alternatives, you could do a stew/casserole which would just need to be reheated - but I love Coronation chicken. It's also lovely as a baked potato topper - maybe you could do potatoes too?
