I'm Not Cooking

and I wish I was. Not that my dh is having trouble, I just really love to cook and create. So I thought I would list the meals I have semi-prepared for him since I can't actually stand and cook.
-Meatloaf w/mashed potatoes and green beans
-Parmesan Chicken Fingers over buttered pasta and crudites
-Falafel patties w/ cucumber sauce, and greek salad
-Barbecued pork chops, baked potatoes, roasted corn and crudites
-Hamburgers on buns, homemade french fries
-Pigs in blankets,tater tots and green salad
-Enchiladas, refried beans, crudites
-2 Roasting Chickens

Mostly these meals are prepared and frozen or are just easily whipped together from ingredients I've gathered. I'm sure you noticed the crudites for several meals? My 5 yo just learned to peel carrots and carefully slice them with a pampered chef spreader. Those handy little tools are sharp enough to cut a carrot but not quite sharp enough to cut you. The most they will do is give you a scrape. My son dearly loves to clean and cut vegetables for a lovely crudites plate. We generously 'let' help out. *wink*

So I guess I'll continue to lay around eating painkillers and bonbons. In other news who put bubble wrap under on the floor under my crutch? Jeebus I almost gave myself a heart attack!!
