I don't know about you, but I am not much of a planner when it comes to dinner (especially while pregnant). I know it's important to eat dinner and I like eating it, it's just the phase in my life right now where I will go through the day and suddenly realize that I need to make something for dinner.
It was the worst when I had morning sickness because I didn't want to eat anything and all food smells were repulsive. It still meant that I had to make dinner for Kevin and Henry though.
So when someone has a new baby, or is ill, literally the number one thing you can do for them is make dinner. It's tough getting through the day but knowing you have a good meal waiting for you, there's nothing like it.
There's a reason why the heart of the house is in the kitchen. FOOD = LOVE. Even Rachel Ray will tell you that. :)
