Next month I am having surgery on my wrist, and I will be in a cast/splint and unable to use that hand for about 4 weeks. I am trying to plan ahead and have a good assortment of meals in the freezer that I can just reheat since I won't be able to do much cooking. So far, I have baked beans, chili, lasagna, veg beef soup, mac & cheese, and potato-leek soup. Also some rolls and nut breads. Planning to add crab cakes and cookies of some sort. I need other suggestions. Can I freeze scalloped potatoes? What about a pot pie if I make the filling and put it in an unbaked pastry crust? What else?
Unfortunately, I won't be able to use a can opener at all, so PD's pea recipe is not achievable for me.
And do you think there is any hope of my being able to open a wine bottle with one hand?
