Anyone who know me knows “I hate to cook”! I mean seriously. I “can” cook – I just don’t like to. I cooked for MANY years while raising kids and feeding s husband who loved to eat. It wasn’t always that great, but they always ate it.
Of course, there are some things I love to eat…
So I’ve said I need something just like the “Jetsons” and their Foodarackacycle. (Food-a-Rac-a-Cycle that could pretty much spit out presumably delicious food with the few pushes of a button — whether it was bacon, beef stroganoff or whatever it was that you fancied.) At the touch of a button it makes and dispenses any meal a person wants. It has a separate keyboard for programming meals. Who wouldn’t want that?
My #1DIL wouldn’t be a fan. She LOVES to cook – and of course she’s VERY good at it. #1 son isn’t too bad either. I think all my kids can cook and enjoy it (they obviously didn’t get that gene from me.)
So, since #1 son & DIL live next door to me now, they have decided I need them to feed me. Here’s a good example of what my DIL sent up last night.
I don’t normally take pictures of food – but this one was ‘picture worthy’. Some sort of pork roll, stuffed with a variety of berries, carrots & zucchini all with generous amounts of seasonings and spices. Served with mashed potatoes. It was DELICIOUS.
Oh, and then there’s the chocolate and pecans (2 of my favorite things). Couldn’t resist a picture of this… The top of this single layer chocolate was covered with liquid chocolate and topped with sugared, roasted pecans! Now, if that’s not heaven I don’t know what is!!!
So, yes, I have a lot of ailments and have been complaining a lot (bad me), but I am truly blessed with family who cares for me.
Oh, my goodness, you are being well loved, well cared for and well fed. Scrumptious. I am not a fancy cook but I get by. Just gets tiresome trying to think of something to fix. And we have been under the weather, too, lately so nothing sounds good or tastes good, either. I should be on the slim side tomorrow for my Weight Watchers weigh in day. Love the idea of the pork stuffed with berries. And the grilled veggies on the side. I used to make pork chop pockets – a chop, sliced potato, sliced onion, some cabbage all… Read more »
Oh Leslie, I’m so fortunate to have family close by these days, and my DIL LOVES to cook, and is so good at it. I wouldn’t try what she cooks in a million years. And, one never knows what she’ll come up with. Wish you were here, I’d invite you to dinner.
It sure does look delicious. It’s precious that you have family that love and care for you!
Hi Ruth, thanks for stopping by. It was all delicious and I’m so blessed to have my family.
It’s such a blessing for you to have your family close by now. That’s wonderful! Enjoy those delicious meals they send and hope you feel better soon.
It truly is a blessing, especially with this latest situation. My DIL is a fantastic cook and enjoys doing it. My kids (well, they’re not kids anymore, but…) have surely stepped up. #1 son is doing is best to boss me around. 🙂
