Post shoulder surgery meals

Leepa | Jun 7, 2014 05:02 PM

In another thread I mentioned that in a couple of weeks I'll be having arthroscopic rotator cuff (including biceps tendon and labrum repair) surgery. I live alone and with the exception of the first couple of days, I'll be on my own for sustenance during my recovery. I'd welcome suggestions from anyone with experience with cooking one-armed with the free arm being the non-dominate one. I have a well-equipped kitchen to work with which is good. No dishwasher though so I'm going to be using a lot of disposable plates, cups, and such.

Trader Joe's is about a mile away, and I'm thinking of stocking up ahead of time on some freezer things and visits there on the way back from my PT appts. Home food delivery is out as I can't really afford that. Looking for some good creative ideas. Thanks!
