She1934 - my kids love watermellon. Beside eating it fresh, they also like watermellon juice, watermellon sorbet, watermellon popcicles, watermellon jello. So I buy and freeze a lot of watermelon (we have a big freezer) that way the kids can enjoy watermellon months after the season is over. If your husband enjoy some of these treats, you can freeze watermellon if you have freezer space.

I am struggling a lit to provide nutritious and very easy meals. I have several conditions, including full blown fibromyalgia, Graves' Disease, a minor heart issue and when these are added to my exhaustion of 24/7 caregiving, I just have to find easy way to feed us. My son does most of the grocery shopping, but is not here most of the time to help with prep, but he is very good at finding frozen entrees and other things that require little prep. I add small green salads and fresh fruit, try to make sure the salt levels are reasonable and thus helps a lot. Though I have always love to cook, I just cannot manage much at all. I usually have more energy in the mornings, but there is so much to do for him when he gets up, that I often do not get something into my crock pot, but I still do when I can, or make a casserole that we can eat for two-three meals. I have a recipe box of easy favorites and keep those ingredients on my list. Sometimes I do "dinner" at lunch and soup and sandwich at dinner-time. That is often all I can manage. One good thing so far is that my husband is not a prickly eater, but insists on watermelon. Am dreading the end of the season!

Didn’t cook. Sunday dinner at my sister’s. Vegetarian lasagna and salad.

I've got baked beans that were in the slow cooker all day, one of the traditional Fall dishes we used to make on the farm with beans from a pailful that were scooped right out of the gravity box. (It was often my job to sort through the beans to pick out any stones, bugs or discoloured ones)

It's my laziest Sunday in a long time. I'm continuing my streak of doing as little as possible by ordering some delivery food for dinner. I'm mostly through the chocolate milkshake. There is a bleu cheese, sautéed mushrooms and onions hamburger in the bag, and french fries with garlic aioli dipping sauce. I don't even know what that is lol! But I'm going to find out. :-) (Oh, it's mayo... ok, got it.)

Not dinner, but I made French toast casserole to take to end of month brunch at church. I had never made before, but it smelled great.

I’m hoping our ideas for church will catch on. It would be nice for all of us. We live in a close knit community and church is important.

Love cabbage rolls May do some myself, or better yet get them from the deli.They do a pretty good job. Great cold weather food. Tonight was canned salmon and brussel sprouts. Strange combo I know, but it was nutritious and didn't take much work. With my food allergies, potlucks are out for me :(

usedupdil -good ideas. I was looking at the activities put on by the church on the corner and most were young adults and children. I suspect I am the oldest person that attends there.

riverdale -that sounds good and easy. I may try it.

For those who are more vegetarian inclined we make a tofu scramble. Saute red onion and green pepper first. Add extra firm tofu cubed and then seasonings cumin and curry powder to your preference. It holds up well as a leftover if you have some left. That and a salad is satisfying. Also adding chopped cilantro at the end is a good addition. Hope this helps someone out there.

Mmmm, cabbage rolls! I'm going to put that on my list of dinner ideas, and cucumber salad too.
Senior Ladies Prayers and Potluck is a fantastic idea, and it will look inviting in the church bulletin too.
