I'm sorry you feel awful. I hope you feel better soon! My thoughts are with you, msmofet.

What cute crackers! I think it's great to get kids involved with cooking!

Wow! That picture is sure inviting! You sure had a good dinner!

Sorry for all the posts in a row. I'm in the middle of making dinner, and there were so many to respond to.

To keep the swelling down on my burns I have had to keep my left foot elevated for the past 11 days...just about insane now not being able to cook (or do)anything.
I could cook(there is very little pain, just swelling) but my wife and daughter get mad every time I try to help

Geez, Jim, 11 days! Insanity would be welcomed!

Can they plug a slow cooker in next to you? Give you a knife and a cutting board? (OK, forget the knife).

Oh, I feel so bad for you! Hang in there! Heal soon!

I know exactly how you feel.
I was in a bad accident years ago. I had 3rd degree burns on my foot. I had to use painkillers, silverdine and keep my foot elevated also. At one point they wanted to take my foot and I told them in not so nice words what they could do. LOl It took almost 2 years to completely heal because of all the damage to the veinous arch. It still swells. Anyway after a month of take out, microwave and hub cooking I couldn't take it any more. I took pillows into the kitchen and made cheese and potato blintz!! I made the crepes sitting on 1 chair and had my foot on 2 pillows on another chair in front of the stove, fired up 2 saute pans and cranked out my crepes. I needed someone to help here and there but I got my homemade food fix. LOL after that I did as much cooking as possible that way. Hang in there it will get better XOXOXOXO

Ok sorry to go off topic.

Not off topic at all! Very good advice.

Here was our dinner. It was a ground beef skillet with brown rice, meat, seasonings, and frozen stir-fry vegetables.

Thank you DL. I didn't want to look at take out etc for quite awhile after that.
