Easy Menus When Mom is Sick

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” simply hasn’t been working for me these days.  I’ve been sick for a month now, with a brief period of improvement, then a relapse that landed me in the emergency room and resulted in a diagnosis of bronchitis.

Thankfully, grocery shopping and cooking are tasks that Colette easily and capably handled.  (Ladies, I’m telling you — teach your daughters to cook so they can be a blessing to others!)  From my reclining position on the couch, I was at least capable of planning menus. Knowing that Colette was doing a lot, I planned very simple menus for the last two weeks, so as not to overburden her.  Even if I had had to cook them myself, these would have been easy and quick to pull together.  While they're not as healthy and rely more on convenience foods than is typical of how we eat, some times are just like that.  So, while I hope good health continually for you, I present to you some quick and easy menu ideas should you find yourself under the weather for a period of time.
- frozen pizza with a green salad
- poorboy sandwiches with frozen french fries (baked)
- canned chicken noodle soup with crackers
- scrambled eggs, bacon, and fruit
- stuffed potatoes with a green salad
- sub sandwiches with potato chips
- spaghetti with a green salad
- pancakes or waffles with bacon
- chef salads with a baguette
- chicken quesadillas with green salads


  1. So sorry to hear that it is illness and not busyness that has caused your blog to be quiet! I pray that your days are restful and restorative. And, yes, it is a good thing to have daughters and sons who are capable of keeping the house running when the home manager is down!

    (Love your yellow ware pedestal!)

    Take care!

  2. Thank you so much, Cheryl! Each day I feel just a wee bit better, so hopefully the end is in sight!

  3. Sorry for this prolonged illness! I thought you might be traveling and preparing a beautifully informative post ... wait, this was beautifully informative :) Blessings to you and Colette.

  4. Thank you, Deb! Yes, traveling would be infinitely preferable to prolonged time lounging on the couch! But every day, I'm getting just a bit better, and for that I am thankful.
