  • You can't usually go wrong with a good old chicken casserole. Almost everyone likes chicken. Choose a veggie like green beans, which is another thing almost everyone likes.

  • I don't like meatloaf, so not everyone does :) What about grilling burgers and hot dogs? It's easy, relaxed and usually everyone likes it. You can make fruit salad, grill corn on the cob and potatoe salad or something.
    Also, I often make this really good chicken pasta dish. I use whatever small noodle I feel like, marinade the chicken in an italian herb marinade. Cook the pasta, grill the chicken, then mix it all together with some alfredo sauce and parmesan romano cheese. Then sprinkle some break crumbs on top, if you like and bake it for 20 minutes. I also like to add broccoli or soy beans to it sometimes. Everyone loves it!

  • The weather is cool so you could make a big pot of soup or stew or gumbo. Serve it with some rustic bread and a garden salad.
