Hi ladies! My FFIL is having surgery next week and my Fiance will be there helping. It’s not as serious as open heart surgery or anything, but he wont be able to walk/fend for himself for a few days. I can’t go because they live four states away and I have a work conference. I want to make cookies for FI to take with him up there for his dad, and also a dinner dish so that the rest of the family doesn’t have to take time to cook or pay to order out.
Any suggestions on a dish I can make that would be easily transported? I was thinking lasagna or some kind of casserole.. but I don’t know..
Any help is appreciated 🙂

I think that lasagna is always a good choice! Chili is another good one!

Oh thank you! I didn’t even think of Chili or Mac & Cheese! Maybe I’ll make a variety of different dinners! If I don’t eat it all myself first, lol

A Pasta Bake. It’s penne pasta mixed with spaghetti sauce and (small) pepperoni. Do a layer, cover with mozzarella cheese and repeat. Top with mozzarella (I usually do a double layer, though I like it cheesy) and sprinkle with basil or parsley (or whatever you have). Bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes – until it’s golden and bubbly. (Keep an eye on it, though). It’s really good and filling, so it lasts awhile.

All of those are great ideas! You can also make a mac and cheese that includes a meat to give him a more well-rounded meal. I swore I saw a slow cooker buffalo chicken mac and cheese recipe recently. You could cook it up and put them in single-serve containers and then he just needs to reheat them.

In Korea, when someone is sick or recovering, they eat Juk, which is a rice porridge also known as congee. You can make it sweet or savory with rice seasonings. I’ve had it when I’m not feeling so great and I have to say I think it’s even more effective than chicken soup!
