👩🏻‍🍳 COOKING FOR SANDY DAY

3 days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility. We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much 😁 I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again.

This week I am only going down once, but I’m still cooking for all 3 days – we will just store her extra meals. She also says she still has plenty of frozen meals I made her last month as well.

She decided today was the best day for her so I after talking with her I made:
▪️ Coconut Curry Chicken x2
▪️ Teriyaki Chicken
