Make ahead meals for Elderly

cgarner | May 24, 2012 10:21 AM

Our Uncle is coming home from a short stay at an assisted living/rehab facility. Unfortunately, he’s not been eating well on his own and he has finally agreed to my preparing him meals to heat up for himself once he gets home.

Any suggestions for nutritionally rich meals, which can be prepared in advance, and heated in the microwave. (that’s about as much ‘cooking’ as he’s able to do)

I was thinking of, turkey meatloaf with beans & veggies hidden in it, veggie lasagna, salmon cakes with a fresh veg on the side, and some sort of chicken and dumpling or chicken and noodle creation w/ lots of veggies.
He’s a relatively ‘plain’ eater. Any other suggestions/ ideas are greatly appreciated!
