Happy Cooking !!!
If you are entertaining. Make something you can reheat when the folks arrive. You don't want to be stuck in the kitchen when you should be socialising. Try a gorgeous fish pie, beef and mushroom casserole(marinade the beef overnight in red wine), home made chicken and leek pie with filo pastry topping, a chicken and mushroom bake with pasta. The list is endless. Don't know where you live but try BBC Goodfood website or similar. Tell you what, cooking is sooooo therapeutic everyone should try it.
I think the best recipes for comapy are light, low calorie dishes everyone like like a fish or flounder recipe. It is bast to serve them baked as everyone does not enjoy greasy foods.
