    Hi Everyone - it's my birthday next week and I have decided to host a family meal at my house instead of going out for an expensive restaurant meal.

    Could anyone give me some suggestions of what I could cook for the 3 courses - all SW friendly! Happy to use my HE's in the plan.

    Any suggestions welcome - I'd like it to be as indulgent as possible without going overboard on syns though :p

    Should probably add that my dad doesnt like pasta or butternut squash or fish - a typical meat and 2 veg guy!! BUT IT IS MY BIRTHDAY!!

    Starter:

    Main:

    Dessert:

    Thanks everyone - have a good day ;)

    you could make individual pavlovas using meringue nests (syns), sweetened quark and strawberries.

    For starters how about a pub style combo?
    sweet chilli chicken wings (the recipe is in the current SW magazine and is for chicken thigs... I'm going to attempt to skin them tonight.. so we'll see if it's possible because I have doubts)
    breaded chicken goujons (put 1 slice wholemeal bread in blender to make bread crumbs, put bread crumbs on a plate, I like to add some jamaican jerk seasoning and some dried mixed herbs to give a bit of spice, cut up chicken breasts into strips, dip chicken strips into a beaten egg and the press the eggy chicken strips into bread crumbs until covered, spray a tray with fry light, put the chicken on and cook in oven at 200 c for about 20-30 mins deppending on how fat your goujons are.. I tend to cook whole chicken breasts for 30 mins)
    SW wedges.. try adding some dried mixed herbs to wedges before cooking to make them look a bit special
    salad

    I can't think what else is on combo platters? I did try doing bredded mushrooms same way as goujons, they were ok but not amazing...

    Hey thats a really good idea - I could have potato skins too and fill with chilli and yogurt. SP Wedges and spicy chicken wings.

    Thats the starter sorted thanks - so I would use my HEB for cheese with the potato skins.

    For dessert I like the sound of pavalovas as its easy and fuss free! Is a small meringue nest 3 syns?????

    One of my favourite dishes is chicken breast stuffed with EX cream cheese with basil (could use quark i suppose) and wrapped in parma ham, I could accompany with wilted spinach and oven roasted tomatoes and a mixed salad.....What do you think?!

    flat mushrooms topped with chopped tomato and blue cheese for starters.

    Steak and chips for main, maybe with some coleslaw or salad

    Eton mess for pudding. (meringues crushed up, some fruit and a muller light yoghurt all mixed up)


    Yum Yum :D
