I'm Incapacited, Husband Useless In Kitchen, Need Easy Recipes!

Hi Everyone - here's a challenge for all of you!

I totally messed up my left leg a few days ago. I'm in a full leg brace. Can barely walk around so standing for any length of time to cook is pretty much out of the question. I have to be off my feet for a week at least.

My husband is totally useless in the kitchen. I mean that in every sense of the word. He could manage to grill a hot dog or hamburger, maybe a chicken breast if I were overseeing him. He has no sense of timing, doneness, preparation. And, he isn't much into even learning, getting somewhat defensive if I try to gently guide him through the process.

So, we need some really easy, uncomplicated throw together dishes.

NO seafood at all - he does not eat it. Or even some interesting sandwich dishes would be ok. Anything which does not require much cooking, or could be thrown together from other already made ingredients. Salads good too - he could manage some easy chopping and I could at least whisk together a dressing. If it is a cooked dish, grilling would probably be easiest. He could probably manage that for the most part.
