May 5, 2009


So, I’m having wisdom teeth surgery this Thursday.  I’m feeling really nervous for a number of reasons but lets not dwell on that.  What I’d love is some advice for how to prepare for the coming weekend. Specifically, recipes 🙂

On Saturday we’re supposed to bring a dish to share with our foster class. Some kind of main-course type thing that doesn’t require a microwave or oven.  I’m thinking crock pot chili or pulled pork would work well – any other ideas? 

Then, on Sunday we’re celebrating Mother’s Day with my side of the family.  My dad is grilling kabobs and I’m responsible for sides and dessert.

Normally these cooking assignments would be no biggie. But like I said, I’m having my wisdom teeth out Thursday morning.  I’m very allergic to a number of meds and have had a bad reaction to every pain killer I’ve ever taken.  So the tricky thing is that I have no idea if I’ll feel well enough to get out of bed….never mind prepare a bunch of dishes.  Plus our weekend is jam packed with dinner plans Saturday evening and a potential trip to Boston Sunday morning.

So, I’m looking for suggestions that will be easy to prepare ahead of time (as in, make tomorrow and will keep until sat/sun) OR are ridiculously easy to throw together.   Total I need a main course for foster class, a dessert for Sunday, and one or two side dishes that go well with kabobs.

Ideas? Suggestions? Help?!
