Chicken & Rice.
About 3-4 cups (you can increase this to make more food, also depends on your preferred sauce to rice ratio) prepared rice, follow the directions on the package, either minute or regular.
About 2 chicken boneless, skinless breast halves (trim off the fat, etc) - cubed.
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cheddar cheese soup.
2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese.
(Optional) cubed fresh mushrooms
Mix the soups together (do NOT add water or milk) in a bowl, add 2/3 of the cheese, all of the mushrooms and diced chicken. Mix well. Add in the prepared rice, and mix. (Add salt and pepper as desired).
Dump the mix into a baking or casserole dish (thin baking dishes are better than deep casserole dishes) and spread evenly (you may need to put it in more than one pan.
Spread extra cheese on top.
Bake at about 350F for 35-45 minutes (or until the cheese on top is nicely browned).

hmm..best suggestin? go buy already made salad and a bottle of dressing..then ask the caregivers help you prepare spagettie in a slow cooker.. it's an easy thing that takes alot to mess up!

.5 lb ground beef (ground turkey or no meat at all)
1 can of beans (your favorite bean, kidney, black or pinto are recommended)
1 can of corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can sliced olives
1 jar of your favorite salsa
1 package taco seasoning
If you're including meat, scramble/brown it first. Dump everything in a big pot and bring it to a simmer.
Serve with your favorite taco toppings: ie. shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole. We usually eat it with tortilla chips.
To make the soup thicker or thinner either drain or don't drain the liquids off the vegetables (I recommend at least keeping the juice off the corn or it will be too dry).
I got this recipe from my friend, she says you can add or skip just about anything. The only real way to ruin this is to burn it, which takes effort. It's also really good with fresh diced onions and bell peppers.
