Fry off mushrooms and garlic, add some cream cheese until melted. Sprinkle some chilli flakes on, and stir through freshly boiled spaghetti. Add a side salad, and its lovely.

A lovely beef roast dinner with crisp roasties and fluffy yorkshires. And ideally it would be cooked by someone else smile

I would love DH and DC to make me dinner on Mother's Day and I think even they could handle my all time fave, quick, healthy dinner.

Halloumi with Peri Peri Roasted Vegetables and cous cous. My top tip is to add the cous cous and stock in with the roasted veg when it comes out the oven and mix and scrape up all the deliciousness at the bottom of the tin, cover with clingfilm while you grill your Halloumi then tuck in!

Ah, sorry. I misunderstood - I thought it was your tastiest quick dish confused Am I allowed to try again please?! blush

Spanish chicken.
Chicken thighs, Lidl chorizo, new potatoes, onions and cherry tomatoes all roasted with garlic and oregano.

Its so easy and perfect wth cous cous salad and fresh bread.

Plus it's not expensive either and you can buy all the ingredients in the one shop....wink

My favourite dish for Mothers Day would be a roast turkey dinner.

TyrannosaurusBex Mon 15-Feb-16 16:36:40

I love puddings but can never convince anyone to make one for ME grin I also adore floral creams - rose, violet, lavender, geranium, anything - and the children's 'safe bet' present for Mother's Day is a box of Charbonnel & Walker rose and violet creams. I would love them to rustle me up a dessert based on dark chocolate and floral cream.

Scallops and bacon for starters. Perhaps with a posh twist (spinach is nice with it).

BettyOctopus Mon 15-Feb-16 16:38:52

Lamb shanks cooked in the pressure cooker

rbrown Mon 15-Feb-16 16:47:58

Brunch is my favourite meal - so i'd love a cup of piping hot earl grey tea delivered to me in bed, and then a luxury half hour in bed with my book. And when I rise I'd love poached eggs, spinach and hollandaise sauce served on a toasted english muffin.

Not too much to ask - surely?!

Fishcakes made with cod and smoked haddock and a salsa to go with it.


mumsbe Mon 15-Feb-16 17:07:48

My favourite mothers day dinner would be tomartoe and mozzarella with dressing followed by a nice home made lasagne or penne aribiata and for dessert either tiramasu or profiteroles dripping with chocolate. To finish I would have a nice mocha with the large box of chocolates I hope I get for mothers day. Yum cant wait

WhyIRayLiotta Mon 15-Feb-16 17:11:58

I would love breakfast in bed. Bagels, cream cheese and maple cured bacon. With orange juice. and champagne

And it's made with minimal banging about so I can lie in bed and snooze 😊

BeakyAndBun Mon 15-Feb-16 17:27:47

Aubergine parmigiana and some crusty bread. Heaven.

StillNoFuckingEyeDeer Mon 15-Feb-16 17:44:45

I'd like a root vegetable & bean burger with sweet potato chips.

purplepandas Mon 15-Feb-16 17:49:02

Ooh. Tough one. Prob a really lovely Italian crispy pizza 🍕.

Gazelda Mon 15-Feb-16 18:15:00

My ideal dish would be low calorie, creamy-tasting with a fruity zing.

Maybe passion fruit tart or cheesecake? Something that's easy to make and will keep in the fridge for a day or two.

And it'll hopefully slice easily and look good on the plate rather than landing with a splodge.

CMOTDibbler Mon 15-Feb-16 18:22:54

I'm a coeliac, so for me a perfect lunch is one that shows that dh has really tried to make it special. So something I love, but you can't just buy - like gf breaded mushrooms with garlic mayo, a lovely gf lasagna with garlic bread and a salad with balsamic dressing, then a nice cheesecake with a ginger crust and zingy filling.

Reality will be that I'll be running a reeeeaaaally long way, then lying on the sofa drinking protein shake and eating pringles

CopperPan Mon 15-Feb-16 18:27:30

Slow cooked beef pie. Lovely warming comfort food for cold weather.

StDogolphin Mon 15-Feb-16 18:43:38

Pork belly with some kind of sticky sauce, creamy mash (carrot, potato, cauliflower?) and fresh greens, maybe sprouts with bacon bits or tender stem broccoli.

Theimpossiblegirl Mon 15-Feb-16 18:48:19

Anything I don't have to cook (or clean up after).

Ideally, a good steak, rare, served with salad and chips, followed by a lemon tart/cheesecake.

flamingtoaster Mon 15-Feb-16 19:29:47

My ideal meal would be Malaysian Fish Stew with rice and salad (followed by Chocolate Puddle Pudding).

kierie Mon 15-Feb-16 20:09:07

My favourite is a pigeon dish...not sure lidls sell those! I stir fry in with mushrooms and make a creamy sauce. Add spinach, just before serving with lots of black pepper. Yum

Wilberforce2 Mon 15-Feb-16 20:20:54

I would love a huge roast chicken dinner, crispy potatoes, parsnips, loads of cauliflower cheese and lots and lots of gravy! I definitely need dh to cook this for me as I hate cooking roast dinners but love eating them! Oh and a lovely apple crumble and custard for pudding.. I'm hungry now!!
