I need alternative dinner plans. Help.

So I was outside weeding the yard. There were some really tall ones that I had to dig out and cut their roots (will be putting down weed and feed soon). I finally got to the backyard and when I was digging a couple of the larger weeds out my hand was sort of hurting. I didn't think I was pushing that hard on the trowel, but I must have been. So I worked through it and when I was finished and coming inside I took off my gloves and there was a large flap of skin where I had apparently worked up a blister and popped it. It's on the palm of my right hand and stings like hell. I cut off the flap of skin and cleaned it and put on a bandaid, but now I don't know what to make for dinner that won't require much hand work.

Suggestions? I don't want to do any chopping or slicing / dicing. I suppose it would help if I knew what I had to prepare a meal with. Maybe I will have DH pick something up on his way home.

So, if this were your predicament, would you find something to make or would you eat out?

  • Rotisserie chicken & potato salad from the Kroger deli, like me! :0 Or having something delivered or a drive thru. Whatever sounds good. What are YOU in the mood for? You worked hard all day, you should get to decide. :)

  • I'm thinking Mexican or Greek. Honestly, I don't care anymore. I just don't want to have to chop stuff up or make anything that requires stirring and stuff. My hand still stings, I think it will be easier to do things with it tomorrow.
