Jeff leaves for Columbia on Sunday (::sniff::) and while the amount of preparation is minimal – the place he’s subletting comes fully furnished – there are still a few things we need to do.
For example, I’m making him scour the entire house for spiders, killing every single one so none of the nefarious little assholes can sneak out and scare me during the week. (Hey, it’s cheaper than paying for me to stay in a hotel for four nights)
I’ve also developed a strict schedule of sobbing and clinging to his shirt – starting easy, with only about an hour tonight; escalating up to 6 or 7 hours on Sunday.
But somewhere in between all that, I also need to sort out what to feed him (here’s where you come in).
We’ve got this idea – err, we’re going to try, anyway – each weekend when he comes home, I’m going to load him up with pre-prepared food for the following week. I’m going to fix him 5 lunches (leftovers, sandwiches, etc.) in Pyrex containers, and then I also want to send him a small casserole pan full of deliciousness, for dinners and such. He can supplement that with fresh fruit and yogurt, and that way he will neither starve, nor end up at Wendy’s or Sonic for every meal.
That’s the plan, anyway.
So I’ve got several easily reheatable entrees – chicken and pasta casserole, (turkey sausage) lasagne, (chicken) enchiladas, (vegetarian) stuffed shells – each one fitting in with our (ok mostly my) mammal-meat-free diet. And I can make him (turkey) chili at some point, too (not just a wintertime food for Jeff!). But that’s not quite enough for ten weeks, is it?
So could you, dear blogfriends, please post below (or link below) your favorite 9×13 entrees? Keep ’em free of dead cows or pigs or Duggar-esque ingredients, if you please. 🙂
Meanwhile, I’ve got to get in my daily quota of sobbing and pleading. Pass the Kleenex. Dignity? Who needs dignity?
