I had my tt on 4/8/11 & looking back, the best advice was to make food ahead of time and freeze it.  I also found easy recipes helped a lot in those first few weeks. It was so nice to defrost homemade chicken soup the day I came home from the hospital.   Anyone have any recipes that they can share? Here are mine: Chicken soup: Saute chopped onions in olive oil, saute until soft (about 5 min).  Add salt & pepper & chopped tomato. Saute for 1 min.  Add about 6-8 cups chicken stock & 2-4 cups water.  Bring to boil.  Add chopped carrots & celery & simmer for 20 minutes.  Add green beans & parsley & cook for 8 minutes.  Add chicken (I use the rotisserie chickens that are already cooked).  You can add pasta.  This can be frozen.  It is so good! Breaded chicken: Soak boneless chicken breasts (cut into strips) in milk for 15 min.  Remove & add to baggie with breadcrumbs.  Shake & remove.  Put on foil lined baking sheet that has been greased with a bit of olive oil.  Bake at 500 for 10 - 14 min - until crispy.  You can serve with mustard or ranch dressing.  You can freeze these & also add tomato sauce & mozzerella & serve as chicken parm. Salmon with pesto & sliced almonds: Put salmon onto a foil lined baking sheet.  Top with pesto & sliced almonds (or pistachios).  Bake at 350 for 25 - 30 minutes until flaky.  This is really good!!  This recipe is good for when you are recovering & want to make something easy & healthy.
