AKICILJ: the long-distance nurturing edition

gaaldine and the_overqual, avert your eyes.

So. Let us say, for the sake of argument, that you have a friend who is a vegetarian. Possibly you have multiple friends eating vegetarian meals. Anyway, for the sake of this discussion, if N = your vegetarian friends, N > 0. Right. Let us further say that this hypothetical non-zero vegetarian friend of yours is currently living somewhere that is...not precisely a haven for vegetarians. Let us further stipulate that the hypothetical vegetarian is not mad keen on mushrooms and doesn't like rosemary much but can have eggs and milk products from cows, sheep, goats, yaks, whatever.

If your friend was carnivorous and you wanted to send them some sort of meal-like care package, you could go to Omaha Steaks and send them some useful bits of stuff that could become meals on days when they might not have the time/energy for real cooking. But if your friend was carnivorous, they would not be up this particular creek, or at least not without a paddle.

The internet is a big place. You do not want to send a fruit basket. Where do you go to order vegetarian meals of decent quality for delivery? I am as fond of veggie lasagna as the next person--probably fonder--but surely there are other options out there. Aren't there?
