Some friends are coming over for lunch on Saturday for the first time since I went back to work. During SAHM days for same friends I would cook spag bol or similar for DCs and grown ups alike. But it feels like I need to do something slightly more interesting for a weekend with DHs lunch, albeit that I want it to be similarly easy... I am cooking for 6 adults (my mum and DSis are here for the weekend too) 3 4yos and a 2yo.
I'm a bit stuck for ideas, can you share yours please?
I'd do a Ottolenghi's lamb shamwarma - dead easy marinade over night and shove in the oven. Serve with pitta, tomato salad, humous. Everyone helps themselves. The meat in the middle won't be seasoned much so it will be fine for the little ones. It will wait without spoiling.
We had friends stay a week. I did Mexican...tortillas with chicken, salad, salsa, guacamole, refried beans, rice with kidney beans and corn etc A roast lamb with potato dauphinoise and blanched asparagus We did have a pasta night! We went out for steak one night... Noodle beef and veg stir fry Risotto
Ummm....I like Jamie's 15 min meals for inspiration! Happy cooking!
