Menu Plan: Post-Op Food


A’s surgery went very well. As I type this, he’s hanging out with his sisters, bemoaning the fact that we won’t let him run or jump. Never mind that 48 hours ago they cut his chest open… :)  We are grateful for a wonderful team of doctors and many, many loving prayers!


From the moment he saw this recipe up on my screen, A. has been begging me to make it. So, I figured, what better time than this? I can spoil my patient a bit.

    I’m trying the slow cooker honey sesame chicken…thanks for the recipe!

    • You’re welcome, Sonja! I hope you enjoy it! I’d add more soy sauce, if I were you. I ended up adding some to my finished plate. It was tasty, but the sweet overpowered the soy flavor, IMO. I’ll definitely make it again, though! I’ll just use about 1/4 soy sauce instead of 2T.
