My boyfriend and I are spending New Year's Day afternoon cooking for his grandparents, who are old Boston Italians. We were hoping to make them familiar food that they can freeze, since they're no longer great cooks, as well as dinner for them, us, and his parents. But time is short (one afternoon!) and the food has to be suitable for people who are diabetic, have high blood pressure, and avoid almost all vegetables. Right now we are thinking of a bunch of lasagnas (meat, spinach, eggplant) so they can freeze some and we can eat some. Any other suggestions for this situation? I'm bringing Marcella with me, if it helps.
