Okay, I hardly EVER have company over-AT ALL. Maybe once a year. I have a friend that I haven't seen in 10 years coming over tomorrow and I can't think of ANYTHING to serve them. I need something CHEAP and HEALTHY, no pork, no dairy. I want to give him a beautiful meal, as he has been thru alot lately (left a commune, wife left with him then went back, divorced him, left him with the children, almost 2yo and a 5 month old baby, single father, and unemployed.). He is a wonderful brother. He is bringing his 2 children, now 3 and 1. He is coming over to help dh with some "man-chores" (he mostly hangs out with single mamas at play groups so dh came up with "man-chores" for some testosterone fellowship). Can you think of ANYTHING. I'm TOTALLY broke so it'd have to be cheap. FYI-I have lots of basics on hand (flour, brown rice, onions, lentils, pbutter, molasses, eggs, potatoes, carrots, millet, tofu, herbs, pasta, apples).
