Are they open to trying new things?
Paprika chicken skewers, just chicken breast dusted with paprika threaded on skewers. Paprika not spicy but may just be a different flavour. Intersperse with veg of choice. Serve with wedges and salad.
How about toad in the hole? add slices of red onion along with the sausages and some whole grain mustard in the batter.
Maybe mix things up the jacket potatoes and introduce them to sweet potato.
Fritata
Roast gammon with a marmalade glaze.
Quiche or a puff pastry tart

Living with my parents while DP is away and our house sale is going through and they are in a rut. We’ve decided we will each cook 2 nights each and I want to use my 2 nights to make them new things to try as they eat the same meals every week and are getting bored. Dad will eat anything but mum is very fussy, no spicy food, no fish, no tomato sauces, limited veg

My list so far

Risotto
Arancini with salad
Yoghurt chicken flatbread thing - recipe?
Sausage and mushroom pasta

They normally eat

Homemade Kiev’s
Jacket potato
Lasagne
Shepherds pie
Turkey burgers
Sliced pork belly roast

What’s your favourite midweek meal I can try and woo them with?
