Meals after I have shoulder surgery

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

SendaMeal.com


Somehow I ran across this website. They are having a special. Instead of $299 it is $199 for delivered meals!

The meals come frozen in dry ice. I am pretty sure they are already cooked.

I ordered the 5 meals package. For $199 I could not make such meals. Each meal is supposedly for 4 people. We'll see.

My daughter will be here. I am not sure she would get complete meals made for us. DH is handicapped and I won't be able to make meals for him.

I am pretty excited about this. chris

    emoticon Sounds like an emoticon plan for getting healthy meals after your surgery. Praying for your surgery to be a success and that you'll have a rapid, full recovery, too! I took care of a friend who had shoulder surgery a couple of years ago. Expect it to be challenging! I know emoticon

    I'd like to know how they turn out. We have something similar here in Canada and I've thought about it. Hubby vetoed it but I'd sure like to hear from someone who has actually used the plan.

    That should take care of food preps while recovering from the shoulder surgery. All the best with the surgery, and a speedy recovery too.

Moon-Pie Stuff I never knew!

Wednesday, October 29, 2014



A moon pie or MoonPie[1] is a confection, popular in parts of the United States, which consists of two round graham cracker cookies, with marshmallow filling in the center, dipped in a flavored coating.

The snack is often associated with the cuisine of the American South where they are traditionally accompanied by an RC Cola. emoticon

Today, MoonPies are made by the Chattanooga Bakery in Chattanooga, TN.
Apollo 11 great moon walk tradition[edit]

The Moon Pie is a traditional celebratory food for remembering the Apollo 11 moon walk that took place on July 20, 1969. Moon Pies are used in the commemorative celebration by aerospace workers and enthusiasts across the globe. emoticon

In the northern areas of the U.S. a similar product is called a "Scooter Pie" and there is also a single-cracker marshmallow cookie called "Mallomars". Little Debbie also makes what they call "Marshmallow Pies" which are nearly identical to the Moonpies. In the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada a similar product is called "Wagon Wheels" and in Japan, "Angel Pies".

Some South Korean companies produce "Choco Pies", and in Mexico there are similar cookie pies called "Mamut" (sold by Gamesa), and "Rocko" (marketed by Marinela); there are several other minor brands as well. In Turkey, a similar pie is called "Halley".

Don't you feel smart now! emoticon

    Haven't had one since I was a little girl. Used to love them. It's funny how I used to love certain things like Twinkies, Ho Ho's, Susie Q's, Windmill cookies and lots of others and I haven't ate any of those in probably over 30 years. My palate has definitely changed.
