I am single, work full-time, and do a lot for my parents. Although cooking isn't one of them. I 'prepare' and serve them, but I feel guilty that I don't make them a home-cooked meal. I don't have the know how and the few times I tried, I can't say it's to their liking anyway. I want the best for them and this is one area that I lack. They are not starving and are well taken care of, but I wish I could always do more. We tried a home delivery service and they didn't eat it. They like things the way my mom used to make it and certainly no one can mirror that. I feel bad about the simple meals, or the ordering in, and canned or frozen foods.
