Do you have people over for dinner often?

What is the most you have catered for?

Do you find it easy to cater for people with specific dietry needs, like vegetarian, vegan etc, gluten free etc?

If you have people over, do you feed the adults and kids the same food or do you cook something different for the kids?

Not really, sometimes on Christmas and that's about it! I used to do this more when I had my own house. It's more awkward living in Mum's house as I don't feel I can ask people over really. The most I have cooked for was 7 - me, Daniel, Chris (my ex), Mum, Dad, Auntie Pat, and her daughter Catherine - for Christmas Day 2009 when I had a flat (Dad's last Christmas ). Somehow it all came together even though Daniel was sick as a dog that morning and the washer was broken so I had a sicky boy and sicky bedsheets to deal with as well as dinner. Lucky I had cooked the turkey on Christmas Eve and prepared everything ready to cook!

Yes I feel I can cater for vegetarians or vegans or those on a dairy-free diet because Shaun is vegetarian, I've been vegetarian, I have to eat low dairy due to my IBS, and mum has to have a dairy-free diet because of her cholesterol. So I know lots of recipes for those diets. I wouldn't know where to start with gluten free though.

If Daniel was going to be present at a meal I was cooking I would HAVE to do something different for him unless we were doing roast dinner. He won't eat any of the other things I make, curries, chilli, shepherd's pie, lasagne, pastas, stir fries, fajitas, enchiladas, paella, etc. Even if we were doing roast dinner he'd only eat the meat and potatoes and perhaps lick a carrot or something if I was lucky.

The most ive had in one sitting is 14 which is my whole side of the family, with their SO's and my nephews and nieces. I usually do roast beef as its the easiest thing to do for a large group and for my vegetarian SIL i get either a quorn chicken breast or she likes the omega vegetarian burgers which she is happy to have with a roast. I always make something different for the kids because catering for 6 kids id never get them all to eat roast so its usually chicken nuggets, waffles and garden peas for them. I always feed the kids earlier than the adults and then they go play while we eat. And then we all have dessert together which is a cheesecake or my orange chocolate tart. My whole family are just cheesecake mad and my SIL makes the best cheesecake ive ever tasted in my life. The most ive had in my house in one go is 43 for Jakes 6th birthday party where he invited the 22 kids in his class, ontop of my family and some friends. I would never ever do that again, believe me it was chaos.

14! You're a legend Molly! I would love your cheesecake and orange chocolate tart recipes if ever you felt like sharing.
