I got the meal delivered by noon and I think it helped out my neighbors. (Leslie, I don't know how you and other friends do all that cooking for others -- I think too much and make it complicated, into a bigger deal than it has to be. This was a much needed accomplishment in keeping it simple for me as I tend to make things too complicated to the point of not getting something DONE. Still working on that at this stage in life. Duh.)
I just threw a whole tray of sweet potatoes in the oven before leaving for morning shopping. Sprouts had some nice ones last week and I'd stocked up. Then, I picked up a rotisserie entree for them at Sam's and a choice of bagged salad since I had to return a shirt anyway. Veggies/produce at another store as well as our shopping.
Dashed home and cleaned/cut up some yellow squash and onions (her fav veg), just delivered that ready to steam or sautee. I also cut up some fruit for dessert. I also took along some tortillas so they could make a second wrap-based meal the next day with leftovers. Those rotisseries things are BIG.
Delivered and Done. Simple. She texted that they will get 3 meals out of what I sent her. Glad that worked out well. And my family appreciated having the potatoes to add to salad for lunch. ( I baked both a huge tray of sweet potatoes and a tray of smaller russets at the same time.)
I had bought some other vegan entrees stuff for the freezer to form other meals around a bit this week, vegan meatless balls and some eggplant cutlets, frozen, and was planning pasta for some of that. I was forgetting they're about to go out of town later in the week and will be cleaning out the fridge. Not sure I'm going to use these for them. I might have my son deliver a couple of jars of veg soup for lunches and more bagged salad they can just throw together for the four work days they'll have. I don't know anyone -- even standard eaters -- who wouldn't like our instant pot veg soup. And it can be frozen if not needed for when they return.
OH! I forgot I got one other non-vegan meal starter. I will have to pass that on. It was German week at Aldi's. But it can be frozen if needed, is not large, and can be easily and quickly grilled and cooked (they grill often), and all of the accompaniments are just bottled pantry items. An easy throw-together supper for this week after therapy? I'll make sure that gets sent to them -- I don't need to keep it here in my freezer.
The other vegan entrees can be used by my family this week. Making me hungry to think of them! My juice is wearing off and I am thinking "B'fast time!"
