    Off next week, and we'll be eating 'in' about half of the time. We are six persons, three generations, and DD is veggie (but she'll eat some fish)

    We've a few ideas, but what are your favourite, villa meals for a medium sized group? veggie or not - we don't mind doing separate meals for DD Beth.

    Oooh doing your own cooking on holiday - what a strange notion.

    I'd be inclined to have things like chicken with salad and bread. Not too heavy after a long, hot day.

    Or we like cooked pasta tossed in olive oil, and stir in a load of parmesan and have that with salad. Very quick and easy.

    We usually grab a pizza and salad and cook the pizza at home. We've also had a BBQ which was nice.

    One thing we often have, don't ask me why, we just get the urge, especially towards the end of the holiday is Heinz baked beans on toast I'll be taking my own beans with me this year :D









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Hi...we have a George Foreman Grill and so just go to Publix or Walmart or the Target opposite our estate and grab burgers steaks and salad etc as its quick and inexpensive. Also getting takeaway deliveries is good but remember our large Pizza is there medium so often ordering large leaves you lots of leftovers...

    we bought alot of pizzas from wal-mart, burgers, that sort of thing.
    definatley get some BBQ stuff and have a BBQ one day, it was brilliant, especially since you'll more than likely have a pool, too.
