My dad is coming home from rehab tomorrow (he had a knee replacement a month ago) and I've been doing some cooking so he has some food in the house. I made up a huge batch of Irish Beef Stew (5 portions for him, enough for a dinner for us and all this is in the freezer - then there's enough leftover for tonight's dinner too), 2 lasagnas (still need to cut up the cooked one and put it into storage containers for my dad), about 7 dozen meatballs, 20+ meatloaf muffins (DD ate a few so not sure how many I have left), and 2 quarts of chicken soup. There's still more I'd love to do but that is what I got finished before tomorrow. Not too bad. With his friends bringing dinner, what he can cook himself and all of this, it should get him through a good amount of time. I'll hit the grocery store tomorrow and get him frozen veggies, some potatoes, milk, 1/2 and 1/2 and some cold cuts too. I'll be seeing him every couple of days since he can't drive and needs to go to physical therapy 3X a week. It should prove to be an interesting next few weeks in our homeschooling!
But there's a sure satisfaction knowing that I've taken care of some food for my dad - and for us too. :)
