Addie, similar to what Bea said, you could cook a little extra when you cook for yourself and freeze it. There are some things that freeze very well...meatloaf and lasagne, mac and cheese, come to mind. Make your own little TV dinners. The only thing I buy frozen for DH is the Viola meals. They come in a bag, and have all the ingredients included, chicken, veggies and pasta or rice. Just put them in a pan with a little bit of water and simmer for a few minutes. Not the healthiest, but pretty tasty for a quick meal. Try one and see how he likes it.

Well, I know what he likes. He pretty much eats anything I throw at him. Except he can't eat tomatoes. The acid tears his stomach up. The only thing I can think of is mac and cheese and a meatloaf dinner with gravy, not tomato sauce. But that can get old after a steady diet of switching between the two. Oh, I also remember he likes Ramen Noodles. That gives me three meals. I can put some canned chicken, tuna, veggies and anything else I have on hand in them.

Aunt Bea, I will pick up a couple of them for him and let you know how they are. Are these in the frozen foods or on the shelf with other dry foods.

Thanks Carol. Italian food is out. The tomato tears up his stomach. I will look for it when I go shopping.

I just knew if I came here for ideas, you all would come through or me. I was sitting at the computer last night working on the grocery list. And when it came to this, my mind was a total blank. All I could think of was "No tomatoes."

If I made extra of what I make for myself, he would end up with just a bowl of veggies with butter. My favorite thing to fix for when I have to eat.

Right now I am writing down every suggestion from all of you.

I Googled Viola Meal in a Bag. and Hormel Foods. Plenty of ideas and meals there, Enough to keep him fed for a month.

The only reason I can do this is because he gets way more then me in food stamps. So I will use his to buy his food. He keeps telling me to buy food for myself with his stamps. But I would rather spend the money on his needs than mine.

Everyday when I come here and sit on the porch with Buttons on my lap with my cup of coffee, I am reminded of how grateful I am that I have friends like all of you. All in one day I can vent and spout off, laugh my head off, have compassion for someone, and so many other emotions. Today I can feel grateful for all your help. I even learned about some new products. I left a bottle of Champagne as a thank you gift for all of you.

Thanks.

We just got back after 2 weeks in Cozumel. The flight out of Atlanta was delayed, so we didn't get home until after 2 am. DH picked up Beagle from the kennel, she's very happy to be home. I am very crunchy, and DH just went back to bed.

I would be "crunchy" also if I got in at that time of night. I took the 'red eye' back from Las Vegas and by the time I got home and in bed, everyone knew to not even talk to me. I took off my bra and went to bed with just what I had left on. I slept forever it seems. My daughter kept coming downstairs to check on me and make sure I was still breathing. I was living in the studio apt. in her house. Glad you had a good time.

Addie, you could try Indian ready to eat meals. We really like them. They also make a nice side dish. Our favourite brand is Tasty Bite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Tasty Bite also makes Asian meals. Judging by the ingredients, I think these are pretty healthy. They don't need refrigeration unless they are opened.

There are a number of brands and we have never been disappointed. We haven't tried the Asian ones yet.

Thank you. I put it on the list.

What to do this evening?


It was so cold, windy and wet at the stables today (nearly got blown over crossing the car park!!) that I need to have a baking session to warm myself up. Bread, lemon drizzle cake and honey nut flapjacks/bars, I think, and I'll put something for dinner in the oven at the same time. Fuel saving as well as warming!
