Weeknight Dinner Party Challenge

graphiteheart | Jan 5, 201111:58 AM

Hello... this is my first post here. I have read many posts over the years and gained invaluable information! I am finally venturing into posting to get some much-needed advice. I am planning a dinner at home for my parents and my future in-laws to meet for the first time. Its going to be a weeknight, so I am looking for something I can make the night before, and then just heat up that day. But there are some added limitations: the in-laws keep semi-kosher, so no pork, shellfish, or meat + milk together. Also, they're not big fans of chicken. So the options are kind of...really limited. I have considered doing a veggie lasagna, or possibly a beef stew, like Marcella Hazan's beef with vegetables in red wine. But I'm not thrilled with either option. I'm wondering if chowhounders have any other suggestions? Many thanks.
