Mild high carb high fat foods for someone recovering from surgery?

My stepmother just had hip replacement surgery and I'd like to take over a few days worth of meals. She struggles to keep weight on (a problem with which I have no experience) and can only really digest mild, high carb foods. No onions or garlic. She loves potatoes, rice, bread. I'd like to bring her something mild for digestion, easy to reheat, and packed with calories....suggestions?
