Welcome to my new The Caregiver Gig blog which does NOT give any medical or financial advice. I invite all current caregivers, future caregivers, former caregivers to peruse this blog, comment, take away from it what you will. It is not intended as a guide and all medical and financial concerns should be addressed by the experts in your life. The pages will probably stay the same, but I will try to post regularly the meals I prepare for mom that are very simple and anything else I find valuable in my life in The Caregiver Gig role.
Early this morning, I roasted 2 small turkey breasts….I mean really small, a little over a pound each. Then I sliced the meat thin and made individual packets that I wrapped in plastic wrap, put in a large baggy and labeled. So…today for lunch, I prepared a “Turkey Plate” for mom which included a few thin slices of turkey over a little bit of chopped iceberg lettuce and a few thin pieces of seedless cucumber. I topped that with 1 sliced strawberry and a few blueberries. She’ll have enjoy that with a cup of decaf, her after lunch meds and a glass of water. Earlier this morning, I prepared a scrambled egg white and put it over a half of a croissant. Alongside that I placed a sliced banana. For dinner tonight, I placed a slice of meatloaf on a plate with cooked stringbeans and cooked carrots. So here is how today’s menu looks on a piece of paper on mom’s kitchen table:
B: 1 egg white 1/2 croissant 1 sliced banana 1 cup decaf coffee meds water
L: Turkey plate decaf coffee meds water
D: Meatloaf carrots stringbeans meds water
