My mother-in-law is very ill and heading home after a couple of weeks in the hospital. I'd like to keep her fridge full from week to week with dishes that her home health aide can easily heat up in the microwave and that will keep her interested in eating. She's in her 80s, Jewish, and lives in Brooklyn, so it's probably best not to compete with the hundreds of great Italian restaurants. Any suggestions for good soups, quiches, and casseroles? I'd like to keep it healthy but still very tasty.
Thoughts so far:
Butternut squash soup?
Nigella's brownies (she definitely has a chocolate thing so she can have a treat)
