Ideas for Get-Well Meals?

Bada Bing | Oct 15, 2010 06:06 AM

I know a married couple, no kids, and the wife is recuperating from some surgery--not so much in pain but tired. Can any of you share ideas for simple, preferably not-too-fatty foods that I might take to them? The husband's apparently a bit of a picky eater, but all I know is that he doesn't like mushrooms and cream sauces.

And perhaps someone can sound off on one idea: I thought I might try a wilted spinach salad that I noticed in a Cooks Illustrated: essentially a olive-oil and balsamic dressing with some onion and bacon. Would a dressing like that reheat well, so that I could give them a package of prewashed baby spinach and instructions on microwaving the dressing when they ready for a salad?
