Having 6 adults 4 children (age 1-9) over for a birthday dinner.

The limitation is that I won't get home from work until 6pm, and will need to eat pretty much straight away. So need mainly prepare in advance foods.

What would you cook?

And 1 adult is coeliac so has to be gluten free (although I'm pretty good at adapting most recipes, so non-gluten free ideas also appreciated  biggrin.gif

Also does anyone have a failsafe gluten free bday cakes recipes?

Already cooked lasagne (I assume there is glutton free lasagne sheets).  Then you could just pop in oven with garlic bread and it will heat while you do up a simple green salad.

How about a couple of different curries? Then you just need to cook rice and reheat everything on the day. Many curries taste better the next day anyway!


(I've never found glutton free lasagne sheets, no matter what sort I use it's delicious and I can't stop eating it!)

Nachos, tacos and fajitas.

Or

Do a roast in the slowcooker that you can pull apart and do roast meat rolls with gravy and potato salad and tossed salad.

You could do make your own pizza night.. Have everything cut up the day before, make dough and leave to rise while you're at work.

I'd do meatballs in a tomato sauce (pre-make and bake, then just heat that night).  If you are feeling indulgent, also pre-bake a potato bake at the same time.  

I use a meatball recipe with rice, rather than breadcrumbs, so that it is gluten-free.  

Something like this:

Serve with some steamed green beans.
