Knowing that I would have Chrissy with me in our home Saturday and Sunday, I found five or so recipes that required vegetables, fruit, and chicken be chopped, sliced, rinsed, and such. While sitting at the kitchen table and listening to music, she peeled everything: zucchini, squash, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, granny smith apples, and even baby carrots! Didn't even matter, I was so pleased that she was staying put and not wanting to leave. Once prepared, our dishes had minimal visual appeal and that was just fine. Though I will need to rethink future recipes with chicken, maybe just pick up a rotisserie bird and skip handling the raw meat. Nonetheless, she was out of her house and content!
