Life is a blur after you or a loved one are diagnosed with esophageal cancer. If you or a loved one suffer from persistent heartburn, please see a GI doctor to have it looked at. This is the #1 leading symptom but often overlooked which is why esophageal cancer is diagnosed at such a late stage!
I’m off on President’s Day (wheee!) and figured, what the heck, let’s get some meal prep stuff out of the way since I have THREE days instead of just two to get stuff done … I’ve been pretty Hangry lately because there’s been a real lack of motivation to really cook anything up with Mark being iffy on what he can and cannot tolerate … certainly a learning curve, that’s for sure!
Anger fueled by hunger.
My goal/plan is to have some grab and go meals in the freezer. Only problem is the freezers … well, they are rather full AND unorganized.
Yeah, that was NOT an exaggeration, was it? Yes, we have THREE refrigerators with freezers. More than any household should have under normal circumstances and trust me, I’m going to have an adjustment period when we downsize to a smaller house (and kitchen!)…
So first thing I had to do was pull out some beef from the main freezer for the Broccoli and Beef dish to make …
Chicken thighs for the Mississippi Chicken (and yes, I had to sing the song to type that out)
It was a good thing that I had pulled out 2 steaks and box of spinach for Saturday night’s dinner … there’s some leftover creamed spinach that I’ll be incorporating somewhere …
And then I grabbed a bag of the General Tso Chicken from Trader Joe’s and a bag of fried rice, also from Trader Joe’s (both from the guest kitchen freezer) with the rest of my fresh broccoli to make me a few Take Out Fake Out Bowls … because I’ve been craving chinese take out lately …
And at the last minute, I decided I want to make a quick Unrolled Egg Roll in a Bowl dish …
I realize that I have not been keeping up very well with transferring my recipes over to this site … I promise, I’m working on it!!
Anyone else using that extra day off for meal planning? It can be such a time, money AND life saver, trust me!
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties … go check them out!
