Ladies, I need your help. We currently have 3 church people on their death beds and we'll be making meals for the families as they deal with basically living at the hospital during the dying process, then dealing with extra family members for the funerals. Our church is small and budgets are tight. We're all going to pitch in and do meals and probably take turns with who cooks the main dishes. Any suggestions for inexpensive dinners? I know soup and pasta are cheap, but we also don't want them to get tired of it. Would it be better if we just got them gift cards to restaurants or money for the hospital cafeteria? I have a chicken and rice standby dish for circumstances like this, and one of us could make stir-fry. Other than pasta or soup, I need some ideas.
