I make a mean Moussaka (or so i've been told) it always turns out okay!
Followed by a blackcurrant cheesecake or maybe a trifle of some kind - yeah that sounds alright...

You must be having the queen over.
Seriously, sounds wonderful.

A famous Food Network celebrity, on one show, invited her boss over for dinner.
She made meatballs and spaghetti. She said he would be surprised.

I would have ribeye steaks, large portabello mushroom steaks, smashed potatoes, broccoli (the best broccoli of your life recipe), and a Romaine salad. Dessert: chocolate delight.

What I would cook would depend on whom I was entertaining and the season of the year.
Since the weather has become rather chilly, I would now serve rather hearty food. I hate to cook meat, so I would leave it to my husband to cook a turkey. He is very good at cooking those! I would cook the rest: sweet potato casserole or candied sweet potatoes, cabbage and carrot slaw, chicken dressing with cranberry sauce, fried okra, and green beans or field peas. For dessert, there would be cheesecake with cherry topping and 3 layer chocolate delight. I think that I have gained weight just writing this!
