OK, Sunday lunch for some relatives of DH. They are 60+ and I've only met them once so playing it very safe: carrot& cardomon soup, fish pie ( roast red peppers, green beans, broccoli etc ) but I have completely run out of ideas for I just give up & give them the Tesco lemon tart from the freezer or can you think of something else? preferably cold so I can d o it tomorrow and forget about it
oh yes, Auntie E used to be a lecturer at a catering college...which probably adds slightly to my terrible state of indecision at the moment...

Apple tart / tarte tatin.

Poached pears in red wine or marsala.

Chocolate brownies and ice cream.

Go traditional - Eton Mess, Trifle or sponge pudding and custard grin

Sounds like you're in need of Delia's cheats chocolate trifle. It's soo easy, everyone loves it and it looks like you spent ages on it (but didn'twink)

This Nigella chocolate and pear pudding is nice and quick and fairly economical with the tinned pears.
Trifle always hits the spot with the older generation IME.

Even easier than the Delia cheat trifle is a sweet pastry tart base from M+S which you fill with chocolate creme patissiere, also from M+S (comes in a pouch), and cover with raspberries. Dust with icing sugar and serve.

Did the Nigella choclate & pear pudding - brilliant!! Left all the indredients sitting in the blender, then when I came to take out the main course I blended everything & chucked i t in the oven - perfect! Went down really, really well and not too heavy at all
Thank you!
