Dinner. A gift for a Friend on Bedrest

Need some ideas for food when it comes to helping a friend on Bedrest?  Here is a glimpse at a recent meal sent over to a friend who had to stay off her feet following surgery. 

When I was down for the count last fall, medicine my friends spoiled me with countless meals.  Thanks guys! I learned from them how to put together a dinner package to let your friend-in-need know how much you care.  Back in the day, help I would take over an entrée with a few side dishes for my friends in need.  Now I go all out. Appetizer, entrée with sides, followed by dessert and a good bottle of wine.
