When you're having major surgery on your chest, methinks you're one-armed for a while after.
Thus I've been prepping freezable foodstuffs for Rick and Faye, who is the chief cook over at their place and the one having an operation.

They were over last week for a drink and I sent them home with meat loaves and tomato soup.

Scott made his delicious tomato soup, which I ran through the blender and ladled into plastic jars to freeze. Just thaw, add milk, and heat.
I made lasagna casseroles (one of Mom's recipes) on the weekend.
And yesterday I made packages of meatballs.

I've worked my way through all my favourite ground beef dishes. Oh no, I haven't! There's still spaghetti casserole, chili, and bean dish.

Next: chicken.


  1. My day was spent cooking too! Nothing like a satisfying day in the kitchen to put you right.

    I like your stove, but my pressure canner warns against use on glass or ceramic stovetops, which would be a problem. It is getting hard to find the old fashioned metal ring burners on new stoves these days, I might have to switch to natural gas when this ones bites the dust.

    1. I didn't realize the element-style had gotten difficult to find!

  2. Nice of you to do this for your friend.
