What Foods Can You Take To Someone Who Is Bedridden?

A friend of ours was in an accident recently and broke her leg, requiring surgery. She's unable to walk for the next few months, and a group of us are banding together to prepare foods that she can store in the freezer and heat up easily. What should we make?

We were thinking that a couple soups, stews, casseroles, and easy meals stored in quart-size freezer Ziploc bags would do the trick - these can stack up easily in the freezer for maximum storage, and the small portions are perfect for one person to zap in the microwave.

What other tips do you have for bringing foods to bedridden people?
