Suggestions Please!


Being so far from my family right now is a little difficult. I would like to encourage my grandma by doing something, but I wasn't sure what! I sent a card, but I want to do something more. She doesn't need anything right now, so I desire to do something that is helpful to her. I think I have decided maybe food is the answer.
I looked into prepared meals that could be delivered to her, but the cheapest I found on the net was 6 meals for $129 - and that was the sale price! Since that didn't really fit into our budget, I started brainstorming about things I could make & send to her. Here's the hard part - what can stay in a box for 2-3 days & not get spoiled?
I recently got a bread maker through Freecycle, so I've come up with homemade bread & 30-minute dinner rolls. Is there anything else that can be sent via mail that will ship well? Help me be creative!

I can't think of any other food stuff, but have you thought about hiring a local cleaning service to go over and vaccuum & dust or something like that?

I'll have to think about this . . . the only that comes to mind right now is cookies. If you're into bread, what about pizza crusts? You could make them like the store bought boboli kind.
