Any ideas? His mum and sisters are supposed to be coming to visit on Thursday and I'd like to cook and nice started and main. I'm a vegetarian so something that I could susbstitute meat free for would be handy. His sisters are 9 and 13 btw.

i would do a main course followed by a nice dessert and skip the starter. Keep it simple so less things can go wrong.

Main course could be:
pasta bolognaise or shepherd/cottage pie with veg(you could use quorn mince for both)

homemade veggie burgers and potato wedges

dessert could be

a homemade sundae with vanilla and chocolate icecream, crushed meringue nest, chocolate brownie cut up into little squares, topped with cream and chocolate sauce.

apple pie and custard or something similar

Good luck! Have you found out yet if they are fussy?

If you did a massive tray of lovely roasted vegetables (potato, sweet potato, some kind of squash, red/yellow/green pepper, red onion, garlic, cherry tomatoes, anything else you can think of) with some cubed feta cheese sprinkled in they could have it with sausages and you could just eat it as is.

You could do a vegetarian lasagne and lots of different salad type things.

Thanks. Not fussy apparently which makes it easier. Some good ideas here, any more?
