She likes lima beans breaded okra and carrots. No pork or canned soup because of high blood pressure. Likes fresh fruit or sugar free canned fruit cause she is diabetic. Already has chicken pie quiches homemade soups covered. Likes chicken but no store bought chicken broth. I must be tired cause I am drawing a blank.

Sounds like she already has quite a bit of food. How about some bread to make toast with, eggs, ginger ale, fruit basket, plain crackers, tea bags, or oatmeal? You could also go the paper goods route and bring toilet paper, kleenex, paper plates so she won't have dishes, etc. She sounds kind of difficult to cook for especially since she isn't feeling well. We like plain spaghetti noodles with butter as we are rebounding from illness, but not sure if she could have pasta? Maybe if you buy the high fiber kind... How about a get well balloon and some chocolate for when she is better? Good luck!

Well my sister enlisted myself and 2 other sisters for a whole meal each. I was thinking maybe a chicken casserole but use low sodium soups. Not sure what else to serve with that.

Is she sick as in can't eat, or needs rest? Is the meal for the sick one or the family? How about chicken and rice? Then find the veggie of the week thread. There's a link for a whole thread full of yummy carrot recipes.

She is having cataract surgery for heavens sake! She is freaking out and my sister volunteered us for meals to placate her. She lives alone so the meals do not have to be large.

Cataract surgery? I had that done two years ago. Came home afterwards, had a nap and was back to normal right after the nap. I had to go back to the eye doctor the next morning and I baked him apple turnovers before I went. From what other people who have had it done have told me, my experience was pretty typical. Even my 85 year old mother had a similar experience with hers.
