Anyone got any good ideas for meals generally?

for 2 people

I bought pizza bases in desparation from Napolina yesterday but that's not good enough!

What sort of things do you like? No children to feed? It sounds like bliss!

If dp and I are cooking for just the two of us, we have things like:

mushroom stroganoff with rice and mange tout/tenderstem broccoli

omelettes stuffed with either roasted asparagus, or fried peppers, onions and mushrooms, with nice bread and salad

mushroom pie (bought pastry) with steamed vege

qaesadillas stuffed with cheese and vege, with mango salsa

pasta arabiatta

baked Camembert with things to dip in it

quick curried chickpeas with bought chapatis, minty yoghurt and a cucumber and onion salad

'posh' sausage sarnies using that bake at home bread, onions fried with mustard and honey or balsamic vinegar, rocket salad

I would like ideas too but I often cook:

salmon and wrap in tin foil with cajun spices and serve with new potatoes and steamed veg

steak and wedges (cut up parboiled potatoes and spinkle with dried herbs and garlic salt)

Pork chops with roasted veg (put in the oven for 45 mins) and make my own apple sauce with just fresh apples and teaspoon of sugar

Homemade pancakes - one cup of flour, one cup of milk and one egg

Today I did a huge batch of mince (celery,onion, blitzed a load of fresh tomatoes and some herbs) and I will use this for lots of meals - shepards pie, bolognese etc as I freeze it.

Worth buying jamies ministry of food

right now I have my brother staying with me for another week and then an intern.... she's Slovakian but eats most stuff and she can/will cook for herself.
