pasta is always good, lasagna (sp?), stuffed shells, or baked ziti, something that they can heat up later with little to no trouble. or maybe a cassserole of some sorts


im sorry to hear about your loss…..prayers are going up!

My go-to is chicken spaghetti. It’s universally appealing and heats and freezes well. I am so sorry for your friend.

I did this for a friend when his mom died, I made home-made baked ziti with garlic bread one night, an oven roasted whole chicken with mashed potatoes another night, and a pot of chicken soup another night. Basically, comfort food.

I actually like to take homemade pizza. It’s kind of the ultimate comfort food. I’m so sorry for your friend!

Macaroni and cheese casserole.  It’s total comfort food.  Also get yourself a disposable aluminum pan from the store so they don’t have to worry about getting your dish back to you.

@Birdee106:  Oh noo. 🙁 I’m so sorry! 

I’d recommend typical comfort food. Do you have a slow-cooker? Some kind of hearty stew, pot roast, etc..

I’ll suggest Chicken Paprikash! It’s sooo easy (only a handful of ingredients and one pot), sooo delicious, definitely a hearty filling comfort food, and it something different.

I am half Hungarian, and my mom used to cook it for me when I was a kid. I never got her recipe before she passed, but I’ve come up with my own over the years – it’s my FI’s favorite food now.

If you’d like, I can send you the recipe.

I hope she feels better soon!!!

so sorry to hear this. 

i think something that freezes well and could last a couple days in the fridge.  comfort foods are always a good idea.

Take something that can be frozen and easily heated up and taste good. It’s cold out now so maybe soup or chilli? The standard I think are casserole of kind.

Quiche if you know she likes it – easy to eat cold or heated up, good for breakfast, lunch or dinner – maybe with a salad? Shepherd’s pie?

Oh, geeze.. that’s so rough.

Make her something she can just microwave.. she isn’t going to want to hang around and cook something.

Spaghetti? Lasagna? I don’t know her diet.

You can buy disposable containers (Like cheap tupperware at walmart/target/dollar store) and freeze soup in those. Make sure to leave enough room for it to expand when freezing.
