What easy vegetarian meals can I cook for six, including kids?

RecipeFilter: My husband and I are hosting a family of four (two grown-ups, two kids) for a few days. What easy, quick things can we cook? One of the guests doesn't love cheese (a little is okay, but no mac-n-cheese type meals) and two are vegetarians; the kids are rumored to be easy eaters. We'll be touristing all day so will likely want something we can make fairly quickly before getting the kids in bed. We have a fairly small kitchen and oven, but are decent cooks and bakers. Please share your best recipes!

Help me make foods taste more garlicky.

I made a white bean/collard green soup in my pressure cooker yesterday. The recipe called for six cloves of garlic, and I used eight. The soup was good, but I couldn't taste the garlic. I used to make a 40-garlic chicken that I loved, but now I'm eating a vegan diet for Reasons, and I haven't figured out how to make my life more garlicky. (More inside - and please, no anti-vegan comments.) [more inside]

Beef Wellington near North Oakland

Where should we go to have Beef Wellington? Accessibility to North Oakland (walking, BART, and driving are all viable options) and price are factors.

Should I Eat It?

A sandwich with white bread, sharp cheddar cheese and dry-smoked hard salami is left at room temperature in a ziplock bag for about 8 hours. Is it still safe to eat? Can it be put in the fridge after the 8 hours and be good the next day? I'm not concerned about taste, just safety.

Help me navigate the world of ethical/sustainable food sourcing

I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with misleading labels at the grocery store - "cage free" eggs that cost three times as much but the chickens are treated no better than the cheap eggs, "grass fed*" beef with an asterisk. I am willing to pay more for genuinely ethical/sustainable meat, dairy, and poultry. I am not willing to pay more for bullshit labels. Help me navigate this landscape without being misled.

What should I make for dinner when I don't know exactly when it'll be?

I'm having 3 friends over for dinner on Wednesday. We're all med students, and two of them will be coming off shifts at the hospital, which will end some undetermined time between 5pm and 8pm. (Most likely between 5 and 6.) What is something good to make when you're not exactly sure when folks will arrive? Note: I don't have a slow cooker or intend to get one, and I don't have a microwave. I do have a stove and an oven. [more inside]
