My Mom had to go into the hospital a few weeks ago, after suffering a stroke.  My Mom and Dad have been living independently with no problem, but to say my Mom was carrying the load at home is a HUGE understatement.

My Dad was depending heavily on her to get simple things done around the house. Mom exclusively did laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, and cleaning.

So needless to say the burden has fallen to me to pick up these chores for my Dad, but I am very gently forcing him to help a bit more where he can.  Mother has spoiled the man. There are certain things he can’t do physically, but others he can figure out.

Along with helping my Dad around the house, the daily visits to the hospital to my Mom and scheduling doctors appointments has made me very, very, VERY short on time and patience.

My wonderful husband has been a huge support for me.  Offering to help wherever I might need it.

He has also been very understanding about dinner, sometimes I just can’t get home in time to get something together, and sometimes I just don’t have the energy.  He has no problem throwing together a quick dinner.

So quick and easy has become the weekly dinner of choice.

Thanks to Kroger I can order my groceries online while hanging out at the doctor’s office or the hospital.  Using Kroger’s ClickList allows me to pick up curbside at my local Kroger grocery store.

I mean, ordering your groceries online is pretty genius

Talk about a HUGE time saver and quite honestly a lifesaver.  I can write out my weekly meal plan, hop on Kroger’s ClickList website and within a few minutes have all my groceries ordered and scheduled to pick up. Just one more thing I don’t have to worry about, and lets me focus my time and energy on where it is needed.

I highly recommend giving it a try guys, you will be so pleased.

WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS BAKED COD SPINACH AND TOMATO PACKET.

This is the SIMPLEST dang dinner ever.  I swear not only does it takes minutes to prep, but there is no clean up.

No dishes are a wonderful thing!  Am I correct? Plus this recipe takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish and only contains 180 calories and 14 grams of protein per serving.  Making for a super healthy meal.

You can play with the ingredients here, if you want to add a bit of garlic, or leeks instead of the green onion.  You could also add a tablespoon of butter, or a splash soy sauce to each packet if you want a bit of an Asian flare.

  1. I would like to try this, but as a LAZY cook just wondering if it would still come out good if I just put all the ingredients together in a glass dish with a lid. Your thoughts?? Thanks
