Gratitude and recipe request

July 30th, 2010 at 02:42 pm

Today I am thankful for the health of those that I love. The father of one of my daughter's friends has colon cancer; it was a shock especially since he was hospitalized for observation following a seizure.

I offered to bring dinner over to them on Monday. Any recipe ideas that aren't too grand? I'd like to do something nice - it is a family of four. The father is eating "soft" solids like soup - and I am lacking any ideas.

Thanks in advance for any recipes that you can share.

    I know how you feel - seems like it is cancer cancer cancer over here, lately. Melanoma, leukemia, and brain tumors, specifically.

    It's so nice you're considering the needs of your friend's father. The more he eats the quicker he will heal! Is he really on soft solids or just liquids? Soups tend to be in the liquid category. Home made mac n cheese is nice. Things other than soups that are soft include french toast, most casseroles, quiche, etc. You might be able to find a recipe for baked french toast with apples on the bottom. I'm sure your friend will be grateful for anything you bring!

    Stew can be soft ... beans and rice can be nice. A good ratatouille (vegetable stew) with rice on the side (or even no side) can help get some veggies into him ... and its a nice normal meal that everyone can eat.

    Maybe some creamy cheesy potatoes. I had a friend bring bbq pork (shredded)with the potatoes to our house recently. It was yummy. There was also brownies. Oh, and a fruit salad. It may not all be right for this family, but I just thought I'd put some ideas on the table to help give some ideas.

    Maybe a mexican bean stew? Or some type of (non spicy) Indian curry?

    How about an egg casserole? You can put bread in a greased casserole dish (I cut off the crusts) and then whip up eggs and milk and pour over it. You can add cheese and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I usually use 4 whole eggs and add 2-3 egg whites to make a casserole for 3-4. Bake at 350 covered for 45 minutes or until firm.

    That's so thoughtful of you to do this for him and the family.
