maybe some sort of mild curry for the main? or casserole (for the cooler weather) and maybe something with a hot fudge sauce for desert :lol:

What about mini roasts or lamb back straps with vegetables (roasted and steamed) with a sticky date pudding?

Chocolate mousse is always great if you have alot to do cause you can make it earlier and get it out when you want it.

If you wanted something warm to go with it you can make a berry compot to go with it and heat it just prior to serving (maybe put it on top of the mousse?)

At the end of this post of my blog is a tarte tatine recipe, it uses banana but you can use stone fruits or whatever you would like. It takes 20mins, from beginning to end and is delicious.

This marinated beef fillet roll is really easy to make, can be prepared in advance and does not make heaps of dishes. Serve with simple vegetables steamed or roasted.

Depending on how dedicated you are, I find a simple fruit crumble is usually well received, can also be prepared in advance and is very affordable.

I do equal parts flour and sugar, add enough butter so when I rub them all together it looks like bread crumbs and then mixed spice. Add the crumble on top of fruit sprinkled with some sugar and spice and bake at 180 for 40 mins or so.

My favourite dessert is from the 1980s version Women's Weekly Barbeque Cookbook - a frozen coffee mousse with mocha sauce... delicious, and I'm not a sweet tooth, but everyone always cleans their plate of it!
Easy to make, the mousse needs to be frozen up to one week before, the sauce can be made night before or on the day
If it appeals, I'll type out the recipe for you

Ive made a variation of that mousse before and it was delicious - the sauce with it sounds great
