Sorry to hear about your friend Charlie.You're a cool buddy to go out of your way to not only visit him but to also go that extra mile to bring some comfort food to him.You are so on my Christmas card list.Congratulations!

Reading that you cook after work.It has to be simple.But good.
Here's my suggestion for what it's worth.

Waffles...See? Simple.Easy on you to.
The things you can do with that gadget is amazing.
The best thing is you know what he likes.Waffles are easy to package up for transport.

I've looked up some recipes for the waffle iron.
Maybe their is something you can try out or do it up your own way.
I saw a few I'd like to try.They looked really appealing and tasty.

Strata w. some sundried tomatoes, cheese and spinach or herbs, fried potatoes or bread and fruit. Breakfast Strata Recipes - Allrecipes.com

Quiche - any flavor you like, salad, fruit.

Minestrone soup (homemade and do ahead), bread and a shredded carrot-raisin salad (also do ahead)

Veggie pot stickers (buy frozen) seared and then placed in a bowl of chicken broth and shredded chicken. Again, you could cook a whole chicken (soup style) one night and save the stock and meat. Then the next night do a quick assembly. Serve it with a shredded lettuce and pineapple salad and a fortune cookie.

Chicken pot pie (use chicken from boil above and make ahead) pickled beets and cucs, watermelon cubes with fresh mint leaves and lime juice spritz

Spanikopita (could get frozen), herbed rice, tzatziki (Plain yogurt and shredded cucumber) and a greek-ish salad

Grilled salmon, roasted reds (wedge em in quarters and toss with italian dressing; bake at 400 - this goes fast), Sliced tomatoes and cucumbers

Brownies with walnuts and dusted w/ sugar
Fortune cookies
Baklava
fresh berries
Pie slice
stuffed dates
Halvah

I'm sorry to hear of your friend who is hospitalized, Charlie. Sure hope he recovers soon and is able to come home. There are lots of good ideas here. I'm sure he really appreciates you and your friends who are trying to make his stay a little more pleasant - food is such a good place to start.

Charlie, though I'm not entirely familiar with all things Kosher, I have to believe that legumes are a fairly common food item. Beans of all kinds, and lentils, with rice, and flavorings of herbs and spices opens up a world of tasty meals. Eggs are allowed as well, meaning soups, souffles, Quiche, and such things, not to mention pancakes (either yours or mine, both good). Poached, broiled, baked and fried fish dishes, in seasoned bread crumbs could make for some fine dining as well.

What about gelatine dishes, such as aspic, or fruit-flavored gelatins, or even panacotta. And don't forget the quickbreads, like zucchini bread, banana bread, apple bread, doughnuts, etc. Then there are all the yeast breads and pastries, and the steam raised pastries such as eclairs, profiterols, jelly filled doughnuts, etc.

And speaking of legumes, when's the last time you made a delicious bean pie? I bet he'd eat that.

From there we can go to cookies (Hamentashen, anyone?)

Charlie, you're a pretty good cook and can make just about anything.

Hope I've given you some ideas.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Thanks. Chief your suggestions are good. Not sure about legumes or rice. He is pretty weak now from chemo and radiation so he needs something light. I have been making fish and mashed potatoes. Speaking of pancakes, I have been making for Sunday breakfast. He loves it. Though he can't eat more than one. I made bagels the other day, hope he had a bagel with cream cheese and lox. I've been making light soups. Problem is that he is not in a good shape and doesn't want to eat same things. Well, he doesn't want to eat period. Ok. Thanks everyone.

How about some french toast? You can make this ahead and freeze - it reheats nicely in a toaster or microwave. You could top it with syrup and applesauce or sliced bananas or even some nice vanilla yogurt. Best of all it can be sliced into "fingers" and served to dip in syrup, applesauce, etc. which is nice for someone who is week - no fork holding.
