What sort of things can you fancy at the mo yourself? How about watercress soup, dash of cream, French bread and some fresh fruit tarts for pud?

If it's a good friend, text her and say "I'm really sorry- but I can't think about food, could you possibly bring something?"

She has already said she will bring something, but she is already driving all the way here (1 hour) because my ds gets really car sick, and she has a 12 week old baby, and a 3yr old, so I feel I ought to be able to offer lunch!
Texture is my problem at the moment, so no mash, or parsnips or such like! X

How about hitting the deli section and buying a load of mezze / antipasti? Then her 3 year old will have plenty of things to pick from too.

Or nachos if you need crunchy? Would you be ok with guacamole / sour cream / cheese etc?

Ah.OK. Then French bread, lots of cheese and stuff, a bag of salad, grapes and some posh bought soup. Sorted.

Deli I think it is! Think I may have to buy a Camembert too and bake it, with crusty bread! Yum! What to have it though? Serrano ham and salad bits?? X

Yes to deli stuff that you don't have to slave over or smell while it's preparing.

I've got severe morning sickness atm and strangely, I can eat most things but can't stand cooking, the smells and it's all just yuk. I think DH thinks it's a ruse to get out of family cooking but I normally enjoy it, just can't face it atm. I have an aversion to dishes too. Happy to clean loos, litter tray, Hoover etc but nothing food related!

Sorry for tangent smile hope you enjoy your friend's visit.

I love baked Camembert with Serrano ham, crusty bread, marinated olives and red currant sauce. Yum. And a rocket salad to make it all look healthier.
