First off I hate cooking, period. I cooked for my family so we wouldn't starve. Now I am widowed, my son lives in another state. And I am the caregiver for my parents. In March as I was getting a mastectomy with my second bout with Breast cancer, I had to have a nursing service to come in--my Mom was packing food in her mouth. So the speech therapist took her dentures out and her bottom plate out. My Mom has Alzheimer's and has been bed bound every since.My parents had put themselves on a salt free diet . Tonight I cooked what I thought she would like but she didn't like any of it. I have to purée her food.I am very frustrated.Theres more to say but no room. Thanks for listening. My mother is 85 & my Dad is 89.
