I have three friends coming over for dinner on Thursday and can't decide what to make. Something reasonably easy as I'm not the best cook in the world and I need to get the kids to bed before they get here too! Has anybody got any suggestions, maybe a good slow cooker recipe that I can prepare earlier?

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Slow cooker sounds like a plan for simplicity and getting your children to bed!

I have had success with slow cooker beef bourguinon (my dad said it was better than café rouge?!) which you could serve with boulangère potatoes or mash and green veg. Or there is a lovely recipe on delicious. magazine's website for sausage and guiness casserole which I've served with horseradish mash.

Or maybe a chicken or lamb tagine with couscous?

I would do fajitas. Sweet peppers etc. have all prepped.

Easy to do a nice fresh salad, salsa Microwave rice if you really what it easy blush

Crack open the wine

Otherwise cook gammon in coke in the slow cooker, coleslaw, nice bread, cheese etc
