Need help with recipe ideas...

I'm going to have to baby-sit my father-in-law, Bill, and my mother-in-law's
Uncle Nasty in about a month. *My father-in-law has very few teeth left, my
Uncle Nasty has all of his. *All my mother-in-law makes for her spousal unit
is a hamburger patty *every* night. *He's up for something different, but
he's really, really picky. *I suggested lasagna and his eyes lit up. *He
said, "Ms. Tipton hasn't made that for me in YEARS!" *Okay, so lasagna's on
the menu. *He said he loves spinach, so I'll probably add that to the
lasagna sauce (I'm going to sneak in ricotta, although he claims he doesn't
like it). *Meanwhile, Uncle Nasty has all of his teeth and he likes to eat
just about anything.
Bill doesn't like mushrooms, he doesn't eat broccoli, he's not into eggs or
fruit and he's not particularly fond of pasta, but he likes lasagna. *My
mother-in-law said to me, "Oh, you can always make a meatloaf!" *Bill looked
at me and grimaced. *I think he's kind of over the ground beef thing since
it's all he's been eating, every day, for a few years, now.
Anyone have any ideas on what to cook for an old, toothless, tired, picky,
crotchety, retired hillbilly? *I could stuff crepes, I can do anything, but
he's into very simple fare. *He's looking forward to a change, though, I
tell you what, and I intend to give him one. *I'll be there 4 or 5 days. *I
know he likes grits, so I've got to re-learn how to make them, but he
doesn't eat chicken, fish or any kind of shellfish. *My mother-in-law will
put salad in a blender for him and he "drinks" that. **I* really don't want
to go that route.
Any ideas are welcomed. *They're buying the groceries, I just have to cook
It's a bit difficult to know exactly what simple fare means, anyway it
might be worth while trying to expand your poor FIL's food range a
Cheese and bacon (finely diced) omlette?
Braised short ribs ( cooked til the meat is fallling off the bones)
Spare ribs and saurkraut
Tortière with lots of gravy
Pea soup with lots of diced ham.
Spanakopita ( includes spinach though the feta might be a bit much)
Roast pork (heavily overcooked, as my cousins used to do it, is pretty
easy to eat)
Mild Italian sauage ( sauage meat?) finely diced, mixed together
mashed potatoes and loaded with butter.
Various stews ???
