Well, today our little housekeeper will be coming. I have a ton of stuff for her to do and to help me with. There's no way she will get to all of it today. Hubs has a routine doctor's appointment. Nothing else going on. Update on our Meals on Wheels -- The frozen dinners that we receive aren't like the fresh meals that we get. They are in different containers and contain preservatives and additives. More like what you get in the supermarket frozen food section. Yesterday we received a "make-it-yourself" Reuben...Turkey slices, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, rye bread and Thousand Island dressing. Also included was a cucumber salad (unfortunately had RAW onions in it; so we had to throw it out -- neither one of us can stomach raw onions -- and pineapple. Our frozen dinner is meat loaf. We will get one fresh meal tomorrow; and that will end our first week. What's happening in your neck of the woods? Stay safe, healthy and happy! Photo Credit: In an email from a friend

My hubs loves the corned beef ones; but he enjoyed the turkey just fine. He piled on the sauerkraut and dipped it in the Thousand Island dressing.

The raw onions stunk up the whole house. I just can't get used to them.

@JWMILLER During 34 years we came to the United States from 2 to 3 times a year, it was because of my husband business. I enjoyed most of my visits.

Oh no! That is not good. Why do they add all that unwanted stuff to the frozen dinners?

I don't know. All this food is supposed to come from a catering company. You'd think it would be made fresh just like the other meals.

@lovebuglena We have to have the meals for at least 30 days. Right now I'm not impressed with the food. We will have to wait and see.

I hope that your husband will pass the medical examinations without any problems, even if they are routine. It is good that you pay attention to the composition of food. You have chosen a very nice photo. This breed is good for children. It's a golden retriever, isn't it?

Are you going to continue using the Meals on Wheels service, since the frozen meals are full of additives and preservatives?

We're going to see how it goes. There are additives and preservatives in the frozen dinners hubs buys at the stores; so it's not much different. So far the meals have been meh. The best thing so far was the turkey Reuben.

@LindaOHio That's what I have always found about meal services, is that their food is meh at best. Nothing has really wowed me to this point.

At least the sandwich sounds nice. You would think they would leave raw onions on the side. Many don't prefer them.
