Meals on Wheals
This arrived yesterday, today there will be a shipment of sealing bags to go with it. I had this Brainstorm on Tuesday, What could I do to really help my Mother and her Companion when she got home from the Hospital? Many of us are now in the situation of trying to help maintain our parents Independence. My mother, in her mid 80's is still very independent and totally on top of things mentally, but she can't lift and shouldn't after surgery and her mobility is a little bit challenged. Same thing with the BF. If I had room here I would just move them both in, and that might be happening down the road, but we would have to sell the house and look for something bigger and on one floor. So to help immediately I am going to become meals on wheels. My sisters bought the machine and bags and I am going to do the cooking and delivering! They would do this too but unfortunately east and west coast sisters live to far away. I am looking forward to this endeavor. I run a whole foods, organic kitchen and I love to cook and I love to eat good food. My plan is to have a food plan and when I cook for my family make enough to freeze for my parents. When I go over once a week to visit and help out there, I'll bring the meals! If any of you have experience using a food sealing machine and would like to pass on tips, PLEASE leave comment, I'm a rookie at this!!
