I've got two sets of grandparents coming for my 2 year old DS's birthday tea. He'll be the only child present.
We'll all eat anything, apart from FIL who will only eat plain food. Think anything British, really. He doesn't even do pasta. My father won't eat cheese or tomatoes.
What I'm after are some ideas for a meal I can mostly prepare this afternoon and finish off tomorrow, as I don't want to spend all day cooking on my son's birthday. All I can think of is some sort of roast or casserole, but all ideas gratefully received!
I've flicked through a few cookery books this morning and they all seem a bit too fussy for FIL and the occasion, really. What would you do?
how about a nice home made shepherds pie or cottage pie?
make it with lean steak mince, and lots of butter in the potatoes...i put parsnips in mine that give it a nice sweetness. dead easy, can do it today and keep it in the fridge and whack in the oven tomorrow...
nice bottle of wine, birthday cake for afters.....sorted!
