Something New…

Sheppard Pie

Living On Oxygen for Life

This is something that I wanted to try for months. I don’t have a lot of energy or desire to cook dinner and it’s really ironic that my husband was a Sous Chef for years. He has a rule that there are to be no box meals (Hamburger Helper or frozen boxed meals). He likes home-cooked food. I don’t blame him. It’s healthier and tastier too. So, I’m starting a new section on my blog, in coordination with Tom from a blog called Breathe This Life, to help those people who struggle with the finding the energy to make a dinner.

What Tom and I plan to do is show you ways to make meals ahead and even some ingredients of meals to help you save time and energy. Standing in the kitchen cooking a whole meal wears me out. I figured that others on oxygen may have this same problem. In the picture above, you can see the most of the ingredients for Shepherd Pie. What you don’t see in the picture are potatoes (to make the mashed potatoes) & ground beef.

Tom, from Breathe This Life, will help me bring you ideas to save you time in the kitchen and help you have dinner already made on days when you are not feeling at your best.

    • Thank you Linda! This is really new. Tom loves to cook and I… well…I challenge myself on finding ways to make cooking easier with the “do-it-ahead” motto! So together, we have some fun things to post!

  1. Just came across your blog today, it is great to find someone living with oxygen just like me. I am 37, use a bipap, on 02 24/7… thanks for reminding me I am not alone in this 🙂

    • Andrea, I’m so happy that you found my blog reassuring. You are not alone. It’s always helpful to have someone who can relate to what you are experiencing with having breathing problems. Oftentimes healthy people don’t realize the difficulties we go through from day to day. Stay strong.
