Need help with menu- Vegan mom, picky dad...

emskyrooney | Dec 5, 2011 07:59 AM

So my folks are visiting this weekend. We'll go out to eat Saturday night but they arrive late Friday afternoon and I'll be cooking dinner for 5 (my folks, my hubby and I, and our 3 year old son). Here's the thing- my hubby and I will eat pretty much anything, and we can always nuke up some nuggets for our son. My father, however, is a fairly picky (unadventurous) eater- a meat and potatoes kind of guy. My mother has recently adopted a pretty vegan diet- occasionally she'll eat seafood or dairy but very rarely.

In the past (prior to this new diet) I've done make your own pizza, or make your own panini, or some sort of pasta dish but have no ideas for this weekend. Was considering pasta of some sort with grilled chicken or something on the side for the non-vegans to add but it just sounds kind of boring. We're celebrating Christmas early so I'd like it to be something more than pizza or sandwiches but at the same time I'm home with a 3 year old and can't spend the day cooking... Was really hoping to throw something in the crock pot but haven't found anything that seems right...

Thoughts and ideas?
