Convertible Multi-Meal Dishes

tex.s.toast | Nov 14, 2008 08:40 AM

Ill be visiting some family members tomorrow who had a baby a few months ago. When i asked if there was anything i could do while i visited, the answer i got was prepare them some food that they can keep in the fridge and eat for a few days (its just the two of them, plus the baby).

Now the obvious choices of something lasagne-ey, casserole-ey, or enchillada-ey came to mind, and any of those would, no doubt, be appreciate, but as a formerly single person i can really appreciate how by the third day of eating the same thing it can get rather old. so i turn to you, chowhounds of the home cooking board, for your best ideas of food that i can prepare ahead for them that can be easily, if only slightly, altered to avoid the multi-day meal doldrums.

details: this is a pescatarian household, vegetarian is probably preferable, nobodys got any problem with cheese.
this is southern california, so while a hearty veggie stew or chili could seem seasonable, its like 80+ degrees and, apparently, still fire season.
