My other is having a nice 4 hour open hernia surgery on Friday morning. Since I will obviously be home with him this weekend, I want to get some good, homey cooking in...stuff that will stick with him but not be too hard to eat from a semi-laying down position (oh yeah, he is DRAMATIC). Anyone have a nice butternut squash soup recipe I can make for him? Or any other good ideas to keep me busy over the loooonnnngggg weekend? His main enemies are mayo, onions and peppers (bell not hot). I can usually sneak onions by him by caramelizing them and then whirring the hell out of them with my immersion blender. Hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
