Freezer meals for a father-in-law in mourning

He does know a few basics. She was in cancer remission so there were some tough times when she had to walk him through some simple heating tasks thankfully. Yes he has quite a few friends in the area that are stopping by but they all remind him of her so I think he will try to keep his distance. We are working on trying to get his father to move in here with him which would be great for both of them. All of us will also be rotating weekends in town as well. I just want to make sure that he doesn't end up ordering delivery every night until we are able to teach him more.

Wow thank you. I hadn't thought about that. He is only in his mid 50s so those are skills he is going to need. Thank you for your advice. Unfortunately with all of the funeral duties that are going on this week I don't think I will have a chance to go over the lessons with him but we will be coming back the week after so that would be a better time. For now I will leave him enough food until I am able to come back and take the time to teach him. Thank you very much. :)

Thank you for the great ideas. Once question when reheating some of the pasta based dishes, like mac & cheese, will he need to add liquid or?

Freezer meals for a father-in-law in mourning

Hello All,
Unexpectadly my husband lost his mother yesterday morning. Since she was the cook of the family I am quite concerned what my father-in-law will do once we all leave. I am a moderate cook and he is not the type that is thrilled by the "gourmet" meals but I was hoping you all would have some recipes that would freeze well and wouldn't require much kitchen know how for him to reheat. Thank you so very much.
