We've got friends coming for lunch this weekend, my cooking mojo has returned and I want to make something yummy but my inspiration is still MIA laugh.gif For 4 adults and 4 kids, I was thinking maybe something chocolatey or cheesecakey (or both? laugh.gif) for dessert but that's as far as I've got.

I've made this for a winters day lunch tweaking it slightly.

I left out the chili and added a tin of toms to make it saucey.
Served with a simple rocket salad and either garlic bread or baby potatoes.
It's delish smile.gif

I was going to suggest a one tray bake as well. The Taste website has quite a few. Easy, hearty and tasty. Oh, and chocolate cheesecake sounds awesome!

And congratulations on your latest arrival! I'm impressed your cooking mojo has returned!

In the same vein, a yummy stew or casserole with dumplings on top? Always looks impressive but no effort at all really!

My friend recently made this with dumplings instead and said it was awesome.

Sorry Megs, no idea here, but I'm still grinning at the thought of you pre-planning for a lunch.

In my head, you will always be the "Oh crap it's lunch again. didn't we just do this yesterday" person.

development is a journey, not a race

Thank you biggrin.gif It was a rough pregnancy food wise, lots of aversions and food my stomach just plain refused to digest, it's a relief to be able to eat real food again! I've never been so excited about broccoli in my life laugh.gif

I only pre-plan when it's fun to do so ie. visitors, every other day the attitude is still very much the same as the above wink.gif

I can't believe you're hosting a lunch with a newborn - VERY impressed!!

I'd make it as easy as possible for yourself - bung something in the slow cooker first up and just let it cook (a casserole or something) and serve with fresh rolls.

Or do a lasagne up the day before and chuck it in the oven, with a salad and garlic bread.

Or make a couple of quiches, salad and either garlic bread or rolls.
