Can anyone recommend any? I have the mil staying for 4 nights next week so would like some meal ideas that are family friendly. Anything that can be frozen in advance is a bonus. Fish recipes also welcome but would rather just veggie really as H hates fish. Tia.

We use a lot of quorn and make veggie alternatives. H doesn't eat meat so these make family meals we all eat. Quorn mince to make lasagne, spag Bol, chilli, cottage pie. The fillets when making a roast etc

Curry? If you say yes I'll type the recipe. My kids eat it.
Tesco had a recipe on the club card vouchers for a butter bean stew Ill post it if you think it'd be ok.
Is soup for dinner a bit lame? Nice with bread and lovely cheese. Mmm. I like butternut squash and spinach with chilli.

Ooh yes we all love curry thanks beez. Will check out that website 1stbaby, loads on there! PC - I thought about the worn alternatives, will see what I can find in the supermarkets here, I'm sure I saw it was more expensive than meat!

Curry paste (I like madras - you can use powder but I think paste is slightly better)
Cubed raw potato
Fry all that.
Add a tin of toms or passata and then add a tin of drained and rinsed chickpeas. Add frozen peas if you like them. Simmer gently until spuds are soft, add a bit of water if needed. I like to add a bag of spinach a few mins before serving, just wilted down. I like to serve it on top of a mini naan but not sure if that's regime enough for the mil! Serve it with rice and or naan. Yummy.
(Sorry I'm crap at amounts)

That does sound good, thanks beez. I'm crap at amounts too, I just chuck everything in and see what happens

We make curry with sweet potato, spinach and lentils.
Omelette (boring but lots of things you can throw into it!)
Risotto- leeks, asparagus and parmesan is our favourite
I've never used qourn but I guess you could make everyday meals and substitute the meat with it?
