My first dinner hosting the in-laws. Please help, I want to impress!!

Hi Friends!
Ok, next Sunday I'm hosting my new husband's parents, grandparents, and sibling's family for lunch. Very exciting!

I want the food to be amazing.

So far I am thinking Blanquette de Veau for the main dish (I have a recipe I made before and it was a big hit), with either mashed potatoes, egg noodles, or gratin...the mash or egg noodles would probably be better with the sauce in the meat though, right?

I want a veggie side, a salad, another side, and also to make my own bread.

Any suggestions?

For the bread maybe epicurious' Cracked Pepper Focaccia with Truffle Oil? I also made that before and was pleased with it...but I think I'd like to make a heartier bread.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
