Yesterday Becky started perusing “Cook with Confidence” and decided she wanted to make the pizza recipe. She read the all the instructions to me before checking with me on the list of ingredients. We were missing tomatoes and olives. I suggested that she make it the next day after we had been to the grocery store. Last night she pulled out “In Bread” and found a wrap she wanted to try but it was a little late for lunch. Today Becky planned, prepped and with a little help, prepared all the meals. Yahoo!
For lunch she made the Ultimate Salad Wrap with tortillas which is number 12 on our challenge. Spread the flatbread with cashew cheese. We used hummus. Layer with lettuce, grated carrot, mashed avocado, thinly sliced red pepper, slices of cucumber, thinly sliced onion, alafalfa sprouts and tahini sauce. We didn’t have avocado or alfalfa sprouts, so we added some grated cheese. Roll up and eat.
Tonight she made number 13, pita pizzas. Spread tomato paste on the pizza base. Add chopped thyme. Add the rest of the toppings, chopped onion, sliced pepper, sliced tomato, olives halved and pieces of mozzarella.
Today was a major accomplishment for Becky. It is hard for her to plan, organize and remember. She even set an alarm for herself so she wouldn’t forget to make the pizza. Amazing! It is hard for her to prepare meals when she can only use one hand, but she doesn’t give up. She did a fantastic job today and I am so proud of her! I’m also extremely grateful to her for planning and preparing meals for a day. How lucky am I 🙂
