My family gets together regularly for birthdays. In fact, we are having one tomorrow.
Being disabled, it’s difficult to do my share. I want to, at least, bring a dish so I feel like I’ve contributed. Actually, I have to bring a dish because of my special dietary restrictions. Otherwise, I don’t get to eat.
Still, I want to bring something. I try to make something easy that will be a whole meal in case there isn’t anything else that I can eat. I’m going to make a box of Near East rice mix and add some asparagus and broccoli. It’s easy but it will look like something when it’s out on the table. And, it will be a meal for me.
Not everything has to be complicated. This way I can limit my cooking time without screwing up my feet for the next day. Too much standing in the kitchen and I’m worthless the next day. I don’t need to bake a cake or make a 10 layer casserole to compete with the other dishes. I’ll just make something simple and that will be fine.
