    Make a shepherds pie at home tonight - and warm it up tomorrow?

    Yes, I'll endorse that. A girl did that for me once, and I married her!

    Icey, best of Luck, kid, whatever you try. If he`s worth the angst and the effort he`ll be fine with whatever you cook, if it`s a total disaster he`ll at least be kind about it, and you`ll laugh about it in years to come...if he`s not, best know now, and cut your losses!

    Arrghhh, the blinking weather is fabulous ;)

    According to the forecast Wednesday is going to be 15 degrees and as it's so warm right now I can't figure out if 15 degrees is too warm to serve a hot dinner rather than a cold one.

    Anyone? Help!!

    why not make a ploughmans style tea. crusty bread, quiche, cheese, ham, pickles and have an ice cold beer in fridge. as it is atad bit warm at the mo.

    my car said at 10am this morning it was 28c. but it is nice.

    I'd recommend a take-away.

    Serve it wearing a french maids outfit with black stockings and suspenders and spiky heels :)

    Hi There

    I would suggest some kind of shepherds pie with veges.

    Or go with the casserole already suggested

    Or some kind of roast dinner.

    ( Shepherds pie is the easiest though and a crowd pleaser)

    Following on the cold meal ideas - how about some nice share n tear type hot bread (dead easy to make if you are a breadmaking type person!), olives, salads, dips - and include some traditional stuff (as he seems to like that) - cold honey and mustard chicken legs, good sliced ham, traditional british chees etc.

    Changed my mind AGAIN :eek:

    I'm now leaning towards Lasagne as I can make it tonight and it's always better when reheated the next day with some nice salady bits and Eton Mess to follow. Also MSE as I've got everything in stock bar the minced beef so I won't have to buy a load of stuff. ;)

    Honestly, he'd better appreciate this! :rotfl:

    Sounds perfect, and if he doesn't appreciate it, you know he's not worth it!

    Sounds devine! I want some!

    Hope he does appreciate it - most people make lasagne from a jar of white sauce, and a jar of tomato base - i'm sure yours will be gorgeous.

    My new beau is a vegetarian and i was petrified of cooking for him for ages as am not used to cooking veggie. Still a bit freaky to be honest. He says i'm a feeder :p:o
