Not literally. And please, no lizards, frogs, or anything else green and slimy. (That means you, okra.)
But tell me your ideas and food finds. We're (hopefully, if counts are good) going in the hospital for 6 days on Thursday. So, the criteria for your suggestions:
* I'll have a dorm-size refrigerator. No freezer to speak of.
* I don't have time/inclination to pre-cook an array of delightful dishes to take.
* I have a hot pot.
* I have access to a microwave.
So, does anyone have any suggestions of things that are tasty? Things where I don't have to take a lot of peripheral ingredients. e.g. Tuna salad ... I'd have to take mayo, and pickle relish, and spices.
I've looked in the grocery store. My, those shelf-stable Hormel things really look like dog food, don't they?
Will be taking: some pasteurized eggs and bread so that LW can have her eggy and toast. (The food is really bad here, so I take some stuff to supplement her schlock.) Oh yes, there's a toaster in the family room, too. But no toaster oven.
And cashew butter. And diet sodas for me. American cheese for LW. Ewww, I know. But it's something she craves. And pickles for the same reason. So, no, I won't have a lot of room in the fridge.
Coffee and my french press. And I'll be taking some ramen noodles to toss with homemade peanut butter sauce. So I'll premake if it takes 5 minutes or less. Mmm, comfort food.
In return for your suggestions, I have sacrificed myself and sampled the new Mint Chocolate Chip Frappuccino at Starbucks. Mint lovers, we now have a summer flavor. (And yes, it tastes different than the peppermint mocha.) I hate to ruin the surprise for you, but I will ... when they give it to you, it's covered with chocolate whipped cream. Swoon ...
Hi. I'm Satan. Happy to lead you down the path to diet ruin.
