I need 5 evening meals to feed them. MIL can't eat....


They don't like very fatty food.

Any ideas on what to serve them?

Oh, and they don't like pasta either.

LOL @ cocolepew. Tempting.

Why don't you ask her what she likes?

Oh, and at the moment she's not hot on dairy, which means she'll eat it quite happily but then announce she's ill a few hours later.

Ask her to plan and cook.

Roast dinners? Salmon one night, chicken the next. Steak and baked potato? Salad with cold meat/leftover salmon (low effort smile)

"Oh, you know. Stuff. You know. I don't know. What do you want..."

V. helpful.
