Instead Marty needs our help. Her husband will be solo for a month and she wants to make sure he has some food on hand for the time when she is gone. Check out Marty’s email and share some ideas to help her in her “30 days project”.
I am leaving my husband… for 30 days. I am a Euro, and the only one from my side of the family who lives in the US, so when I got a chance to visit my parents for a month, I grabbed it. I’m taking my two little sons and leaving my husband (and a Pug) behind for four weeks.
Deep down, I believe that my husband could be a great cook. He won me over with an awesome chicken salad once, and he leaves enough hot water in a kettle for me to make myself some coffee. But seriously – I love cooking and typically don’t let him step a foot in the kitchen. I cook almost every night, and basically never buy ready meals. I also use coupons a lot (why else would I write to you?), and do all the grocery shopping.
There’s no doubt he would survive the 30 days alone, all by himself (ok, with the pug), on ramen noodles, but I was hoping you, or maybe the other iHeartPublix readers, could help me with some opinions on how to build a generous stash of microwavable meals. Which brands are yummy and healthy? Which will fill up a guys stomach? What is a good price (after coupons&promotions) for a single serving meal? Maybe you have some recipes I could make in advance and freeze for him?
