something beside boring broccoli …
My good friend Shirley had heart valve surgery last week and just got home from the hospital. I want to take her dinner tonight, but having a hard time coming up with a menu. She isn’t allowed sodium or sugar – along with obvious other stuff like cheese, eggs and butter.
I had bought all the stuff to make a delicious chicken tortilla soup yesterday, but was appalled by all the sodium packed into that innocent looking soup. The Ranch Beans alone contained more sodium that she is allowed in a month – not to mention the Rotel tomatoes and picante sauce… So I took it to my Super Bowl party last night instead. (I guess we’ll all be having by-passes after eating that salt laden soup and cheesy Mexican cornbread.)
Well, what in the world is there left? Since I can’t cook without salt, butter, cheese and eggs, I’m at a loss of what to take her other than a big bowl of steamed broccoli, hold the parmesan! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thought about a marinated pork tenderloin, but pork just sounds mean for someone who just had heart surgery!
Idea anyone – especially if you’ve been cooking for a heart patient?
