What? A menu? When was the last time I was able to post a menu? And follow it? Seems like forever! Hopefully things are calm enough around here and hubby is home to stay, because I’m tired of eating out (can you believe that statement?) and have missed cooking in my kitchen.
Here’s what’s planned for the upcoming week:
December 8: Ham steak; baked sweet potatoes and russet potatoes; veggies; bread
December 9: Eggs and sausage links; homemade muffins; orange juice; strawberry/banana juice
December 10: Italian meatballs and rotini pasta; Italian bread
December 11: Meatless Wednesday! Salad with all kinds of goodies!
December 12: Tilapia; fresh asparagus; macaroni and cheese
December 13: Rib-eye steaks; baked potatoes; veggies
December 14: Grilled lemon-herb pork chops; buttered potatoes; veggies
And, I know, some of you have written to me asking why in the world I’m letting hubby eat fatty meats and butter and things that his cardiologist would not want me to feed him. I have to explain to you that hubby’s oncologist, during his last hospitalization, had a talk with me, and he said to not fuss over hubby. He told me, “If he wants it, let him eat it. Don’t stop him from having his favorite foods.”
Now, that doesn’t mean that I give him a pound of butter with his buttered potatoes. I use it sparingly, just enough for him to know that they ARE buttered potatoes. One of his oncology nurses told me early on that the chemo will wreck havoc on his taste buds, his tummy and all of him, and there will times when ANY food is going to be refused and that whenever that happens, just let him be. And if, later on, he wants ice cream for supper, by all means, to give him the ice cream.
