Okay. D-Day approaches. Or, more accurately, H-Day? The Big Surgery. It's not scheduled yet, but if I want to have it while my sister the schoolteacher is out of school and can help me with Bella (and I DO), I need to have it done within the next couple of weeks. Although I haven't blogged about it before, I have a surgery phobia/anxiety that borders on sheer panic and hysteria...and yet, that is not what I am most dreading. What horror, you might wonder, fills my heart with such trepidation? It is the question--The Question--that I know will cause more stress, bickering, and worry in my household than any other question possibly could:
"WHAT'S FOR DINNER?"
Shoot me now. OR, instead, help me out with some recipes. This is where I plead with you, Internets: Send me your easy, preferably one-dish, preferably freezable, recipes! I need dishes that have simple ingredients, are easy to assemble, and easy to clean up after. And if I can prepare them ahead of time and freeze them, even better. I AM NOT KIDDING. This is not my forte, as my cooking tends to be tasty, but complicated and messy. Super-moms and super-cooks, I'm looking to you for HELP in my time of need! Please send at your lifesaving, labor-saving recipes to me at ninjapoodles at gmail dot com, or just post them here in the comments for others to share. I've got to get cracking, and get my pantry and freezer stocked.
And to all my local friends and family--those of you who have asked me often, "Is there anything I can do?" Now's your chance. I will gladly take you up on your kind offer, if you care to make a dish for my freezer that will feed my family during my recuperation, or a treat for Alex and Bella, who will be caring for me lovingly.
Let's see what you've got, Internets. Recipes--GO!
