Dithering about what dinner to make for a family who needs it. Please help!?!?!

About a month ago I volunteered to take dinner to a local family through takethemameal.com (great site, by the way). The dad is recently home after almost two weeks in ICU and the community's pulling together to bring dinner four times a week. So far so good. But it's my turn tomorrow and I can't seem to settle on anything.

Here's what I know: two adults (mid to late thirties?), two growing boys. Fit, active family. Um, yeah, that's it. Oh, they're lovely people of course, but that doesn't help with food preferences.

I was thinking about the epi super slaw (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...). But then, what else? My rice has never been fab and at over 7000 feet, even less so. Grilled chicken?

Or take it a totally different way and go Chicken Marbella with a big salad and maybe some pasta?

I am at a complete loss and would really appreciate your help.

It's summer here in the Rockies, but not so warm an oven feels oppressive. Ideas about things that could be cooked at my house, taken to theirs and fill their tummies with delight?

Thanks in advance for any and all help you can offer!!!
