    I'm getting both children christened (not till May) & we're having a party afterwards. It'll be 40 people (30 adults & 10 kids).

    We're having it at the cricket club but wanted quick, easy food things that we don't have to spend ages sorting out.

    My sister suggested a pot of stew & rice, crusty bread.

    It'll be our immediate families so they won't be too fussy.

    Any ideas please? Or should I just get party platters from Iceland?

    One of the most simple and successful dishes I once witness was huge bowls of chilli.

    You could do it all SW-style and add rice and/or crusty bread - similar to your stew.

    May is quite summery. Would you fancy stew then?

    I like Max's idea of chilli though. With wraps, salads, nachos, cheese etc and people could build their own and make it as fattening or SW-friendly as they fancied.
