    I have actually posted this in the recipe requests forum, but I thought I would post here as I don't want to get recipes that use a lot of "american ingredients" thqt we can't get here. Also I like to cook from scratch and I think most of the current posters do as well. Anyway, the more people you ask, the more chance of help you will get.

    I am trying to find tasty dishes that I can preprepare and freeze for my 90 year old father. My mum died a year ago and left him completely incapable in the kitchen. I am trying to build up some "all in one " recipes that he can take out of the freezer and then either heat up in the oven or the microwave and not have to do anything to go with it. He is kosher so won't mix meat and dairy, or have pork/shellfish nor does he really like spicy food.
    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I did have to do this for my father and arn't you lucky to have him still at 90. What I did was get lots of these disposable containers, if you are using a m/wave then don't get metal but get the plastic kind. Then its meals like shepherds pie plus peas and gravy, or fish in milk with say cabbage. If you cook everying to 90% and then that leaves room for the reheating. mash seems to freeze all right but roast and chips are not all that good. I froze a whole load of ratatouille the other day and defrosted it in pancakes, and then he could eat it with rolls or just bread. Cake and ice cream freeze well for desserts and fruit like apple and red fruits in a juice keep well.

    Hope thats of help.

    and casseroles, chicken etc. divided up, with all the veg in it too.

    For meals to fix and freeze, check out the OAMC (Once A Month Cooking) category here on 'Zaar. Also check the OAMC community forum for tips and hints on what freezes well.
