Day 537

Not enough choices.

That's the complaint I've already received from my husband in regards to my cooking. He seems to think he is still a hospital patient and should be able to pick from several choices on a menu.

I thought I was doing pretty well in the choice department. In the past few days for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks he's had:
  • English muffins
  • Cereal
  • Oatmeal
  • Yogurt
  • Scrambled egg
  • Veggie breakfast sausage
  • Toast
  • A large green salad
  • Chicken tacos
  • A tuna salad
  • Roasted chicken
  • Grilled tuna fish sandwich
  • Chicken fried rice
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cottage cheese
  • Jello with fruit
  • Orange sherbet
  • Chocolate/strawberry/vanilla swirl ice cream cups
  • Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Applesauce
  • Fruit cocktail
  • Grape juice
  • 7up
  • Mio flavored water
  • Crystal Light
 I'm not a short-order cook but it looks like I'm on my way. Tonight's menu special was fried rice.

Brown rice tossed with carrots, peas, celery, onions and peppers from the garden, a bit of turkey bacon, some chicken, and a scrambled egg. Having not used brown rice before there's only one thing to say. Yum.
