Food: Easy Recipes While Sheltering in Place

As we all know grocery shopping has become the most challenging – where we need to stand in-line, or shop certain hours, take home only 1 or 2 of a product even if feeding a family of 4 or 5 and after spending an excruciating amount of time walking from aisle to aisle, holding our breathes, or wearing a mask and gloves, and avoiding even eye contact with anyone – we come home forgetting something or that what you may need the most isn’t on the shelves  – so you improvise.

The next step is finding creative ways to make a meal – after the usual pot full of spaghetti, or lasagna.  Is it just me, or most of us are craving more carbs these days?

So, while awake at night – worrying about my aging dog, and working from home or my mother – I find myself thinking even more about our dinners. Not because of me enjoying cooking but for some reason the survival mode we are now in. Weird how our minds works in times of distress.

Without much more ranting – I share with you some meal suggestions and swapping out ingredients based on what you have managed to find in your local grocery store.

Sausage, Potato and Kale seems easy enough

Shrimp or my case chicken in a can of coconut dish

Loving this – legume and caramelized veggies and an fried egg

whatever you got hummus bowl – sold to this Mediterranean family

Although pulled pork is recommended, I prefer a pot roast variation for my picky eaters

Just curious – what are you watching on television lately? Although I was under the impression or read it somewhere that watching corky, funny rom-coms were the recommended for mental health at this difficult time – but I’ve been watching a few suspense films, or action packed ones and oddly enough feeling the most satisfied. How about you?

Here's a list from Netflix of 25 best thriller films - which do you recommend?
