I’m taking dinner round to a friend’s house tomorrow to share with her family. Am really in need of ideas on what to make - it needs to be suitable for toddlers too (who are not fussy), can be pre cooked and transported ready to eat (only about 10 mins away), and can’t contain courgettes, aubergines, butternut squash or cauliflower. Ideally one main dish and a salad or veg. My mind has gone blank, so would really appreciate some ideas please. What would you make?

Lasagne with green salad and garlic bread? Or a mild chilli with tortilla chips, sour cream and rice?

I'd take a lasagne myself!

Huge bowl of tuna pasta salad with lots of veg in it. Easy to share, doesn't need rehearing, kid friendly

Thank you for the ideas. Yes, lasagne a good choice. Forgot to say that tuna was off the menu unfortunately.

Lasagne does travel well. Or a pasta bake of some description can be quicker if you don't have the time.

I'd do a roast chicken with some salad and new potatoes. If you're able to cook immediately prior to going over, the potatoes and chicken will stay warm and it's a nice thing to have in this weather - still a "hot meal" without feeling too heavy.

I'd do a pasta salad and oven roasted drumsticks with chips and boiled veg.
Child friendly but also fun for the adults

I'd do pulled pork.
