Five for dinner. I'm a baker, not a cook.

THewat | Oct 16, 2013 08:00 PM

We're five for dinner on Friday, six for the rest of the meals this weekend. One of us is a fabulous cook & is making something seasonal with fish on Saturday night. One of us doesn't eat red meat.

Any suggestions for a Friday night menu that's low stress for this non-cook? Maybe a couple of roast chickens, polenta & "pot-stuck" brussels sprouts (, and something orange: thyme-roasted sweet potatoes or roasted butternut squash with onions, brown butter & sage? Somehow (at this hour) the whole thing seems uninspired.

If I can get everyone through to dessert, I'll end with a french apple tart or something, but any help with the meal you can offer would be appreciated.
