I would like chorizo, cheese, bread etc for dinner one night but I need to make sure it feels like a 'proper' dinner for hungry males Hmm

What would you serve? Just looking for general yummy ideas as well as ways to make sure it's filling...

Pan of garlic and rosemary roasted potatoes?

Baked camembert?

Baked potatoes?

What about having that alongside a thick soup?

Or some chunky home made and seasoned oven cooked chips?


Or, what about having a hot pudding? A stodgy sticky toffee pudding or a hot pie served with cream or custard? That should leave them feeling satisfied if you just serve the cheese, bread and chorizo.

Feeling your pain Vera. The males in my household are absolute troughers, (do lots of sport so have that as an excuse). I am deeply fed up with meals having to be "substantial".

Mine would happily gobble 6 sausage rolls.
Add a marguerita pizza if you want variety, maybe.

Prawns with chilli and her by potatoes

Patatas bravas and maybe a big salad

I'd add pizza, warm pittas and hummous to fill them up more. Or crumble and custard for pudding.
