My Dad can't cook....

yummyinmytummy | Apr 7, 2011 03:50 PM

My mom recently passed away and my Dad and brother need food to eat in the house that is simple make and/or reheat. They have a caregiver who is not that great in the kitchen. Microwaving and making a salad is the extent of the the kitchen skills.

They simply can not live on pasta/lasagna for the rest of the their lives. Nor is take out every night an option.

What can I make on Sunday that they can get a few meals out of the rest of the week.

They will only eat green beans, peas and carrots as veggies. They will eat veggies if it is "in something" and does not look like a piece of broccoli on their plate.

They eat all proteins, but I would prefer to stay mostly with chicken/turkey, egg whites, tofu and occasionally red meat.

Soup is ok, but it would have to be thick and hearty or they won't eat it.

I know this is a hard task....but I simply can not make them dinner EVERY night....I will lose my mind.
