Your flu-addled bud keeps texting not-so-subtle demands (Where r u?! Need soup.). Too bad your upcoming social calendar doesn’t include nursing fevers and sharing colds.
Tend to the sick or harried (without starting your stove or car) with Newton catering company Bakers’ Best’s Gift of Food program.
Each of the seven multicourse menus feeds a particular need: Sleep-deprived parents can face-plant into Around the Table (mushroom penne and egg-dipped chicken picatta with lemon caper sauce), busy-in-love newlyweds will hand-feed each other quiche from the Simple Beginnings breakfast basket, and snivelers get Grandma’s Cure (chicken veggie soup, freshly baked rolls, and whoopie pies).
Delivered to one’s door, the precooked banquets come with detailed warming instructions. Prices range from $10 to $23 per person — about the same amount of money you’d spend on gas schlepping over to your pal’s place yourself.
And she can thank you from afar.
