 Since my son has a summer cold, I am going to make some homemade chicken noodle soup, with crackers and cheese.   Fresh rainier cherries for dessert.

it is that time of week where i start putting together a menu, though i must say I am at a loss of what to cook, nothing sounds good and i have to keep in mind it must be something that can be prepped the day before as i do not get home until 930 most nights.

When I was young and had kids I needed to keep healthy I would do crock pot meals.  Set them up in the morning before I left for work, and when we came home, dinner was ready.   I should do that now for my aunt, but she has no teeth (well she will finally get her bottom teeth in 2 weeks) and she is so picky.   It has gotten that I go to Wendy's every 3 or 4 days and buy 3 or 4 jr hamburger with only mayo, keep them in the fridge and give her one at night for dinner.  She won't eat anything else.   For lunch if she is not at the center I give her a frozen pasta meal (I buy the one with a little broccoli chopped up tiny) and she eats half, so now I cook it, put half in a container for the next day and give her half.  I eat cereal or a sandwich on the days I don't go to Wendy's.   I know it affects my energy, but there are not enough hours in the day to work full time and take care of a 90 year old and a house.   I think about when she gets her bottom teeth putting a chicken and vegetables in the crock pot sunday morning and we can eat that for a few days, we shall see if she will eat it.

Didn’t really feel like cooking a big meal so we had buffalo chicken sandwiches (Kroger sells thinly sliced, uffalo seasoned raw chicken that I fry up in a pan) and chips.

@tcgram  tell me more about this apple salad

It's apples, walnuts (or whatever you prefer) raisins, celery, mini marshmallows, sliced sweet red grapes and miracle whip.   Chop the apples, celery and walnuts, slice the red grapes in half.  Add the mini marshmallows (depending on who is eating it,  I lower the amount if it's just me), raisins and just enough miracle whip to hold things together.  Refrigerate for at least an hour but I like it done overnight so flavors mingle better.

I hope that works out and you can do just that.   It sounds like you may need to do that for yourself.   Maybe cut the recipe in half or make half of it and put in an instant pot?   Just trying to think of ideas to get some good food in you as well.   :)

I do have an instant pot (the expensive pampered chef one) that I have not used much.    I did find that it does not cook pinto beans very well, takes the same amount of time as the crock pot, even when I use the pressure cooker function.   But I may have done something wrong.   Confused the machine or something.
