Hosting ILs on New Years Eve. Combination of young children, oldies and pregnant women.

Would like to do something that is a sit-down meal rather than a buffet (simply because we don't get together very often) and I think most people will be sick of Christmas dinner / roasts by then.

Can anyone suggest that would work - ideally with lots of the prep done the day before?

Thank you!

I'd do something really easy to make in bulk.
Risotto
Pie
Chilli
Curry

Sort of thing

thank you. Might try different curries.

Yes curries would be good, I'd go to town with the sides, popodoms, nann, mango chutney, raita, samosas, Bombay potato, onion bhajis etc etc!

I often do pasta for big gorups like that. Need a few big pans to do the pasta in.

So one vat of meat sauce like Jamies pregnant jools pasta, and one vat of a veggie bol.
Can be kept warm in the oven if you then struggle for hob space when you're cooking the pasta on the evening.

Serve with salad, lots of Parmesan and garlic bread.
