for a dictionary and also for things like your second question about the wine substitution, for which I donít know the answer off the top of my head.
I drink warm beverages out of a thermal cup, think it is 8 oz. Canít use it to warm my hands, because itís thermal. lol
We never have surprise company at mealtime, but I (almost always) have meatloaf slices and twice-baked potatoes in the freezer. In the event someone popped in to eat, Iíd add a salad, coleslaw or another vegetable and call it a meal.
DH is gone 2-3 nights out of the week, but on the days Iím cooking, I start planning early afternoon. I donít move as fast as I used to, so I canít fly around and multi-task at the last minute.
Have a great day with your sister. :)
