Caregiving from my kitchen

WIAW 58 – No Time to Cook!

No time to cook!   www.inhabitedkitchen.com

I saw crocus blooming… (didn’t have the camera, though.) So there is hope… there will be Spring.

I am feeling better (thank you to those who sent good wishes! I love community… ) I’m a bit busy catching up now in both behind the scenes work here and other paperwork and writing that have been a bit neglected while I wasn’t well. So, I had no time to cook! Without more ado – what I ate on Monday, as it happens, served up on Wednesday.

Breakfast -

I’m mostly not having the protein shakes just now, but every so often, they just do come in handy, especially if I’m in a rush. So… kefir and orange juice with protein powder, and muffins I’d baked the day before, and a breakfast that was super fast to both prepare and eat.

Lunch was… cheese glop? Um… well, it is hard to tell… but it was a couple of leftovers – some chicken, some cabbage, other odd and ends, and quinoa – with a cheese sauce. There wasn’t actually all that much cheese in it – enough to boost the protein and pull the flavors together – but it certainly does dominate the picture… (I splashed in milk, dropped in a roux cube, tossed in cubes of cheese – et voila –  cheese sauce.)

Dinner - www.inhabitedkitchen.com

Dinner – I grabbed a bag of already browned beef with onions from the freezer, added a little cumin and a lot of chopped cabbage, and a carrot, sauteed it all, added some water (broth??) and cooked until the vegetables were done, then threw it over rice. (Electric rice cookers are the best!)
