  • How about a nice hearty chicken and veggie soup? You can make it by cubing boneless skinless chicken breasts, and cooking it in boxed or canned chicken broth. To this you can add, diced celery, onions, and carrots. (I also add a bit of broccoli, and cauliflower). Cook that together and then add egg noodles to it. Season with a bit of salt and pepper. I add a bit of sharp cheddar cheese on the top of each bowl as well.

    I too am sorry for your loss.

  • Italian Lentil & Squash Stew
    1.5 cups dried brown lentils, rinse in a strainer
    1 small butternut squash (1 1/4 lb.) peeled, seeded and cut in 1" chunks (about 3 cups)
    2 cups marinara sauce, jarred or homecooked
    8 ounces green beans ends trimmed and cut in half (2 cups) I use frozen chopped spinach
    1 medium bell pepper -- cored cut in 1" chunks
    1 large potato-peeled and cut in 1" chunks
    3/4 cup onion-chopped
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    Mix lentils and 3 cups water in a 3-quart or larger slow-cooker. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients except olive oil; place on lentils. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or until the vegetables and lentils are tender. Stir in the oil if desired. Serve in soup plates or bowls. If you have a newer crockpot, you may want to check it halfway to two-thirds of the way through cooking for doness. So check it between 4 and 6 hours

    I am so sorry for your loss.

  • With so many people trying to eat healthy, even though comfort food would seem so appropriate, I dont think you would go wrong with fresh veggies,maybe some fruit.
