Thanks. I'm still trying to navigate thru all the information on this website. So much to absorb. I'm a real big soup maker, especially vegetable and chicken. I make bean with ham for my husband and it's really good, however I am not a big fan of beans. Don't like the texture of them I guess. He will pretty much eat whatever I put in front of him, so he's not a problem. He's pretty helpful in the kitchen too. He'll pretty much do whatever I tell him to...like get things "ready" for me so I can just throw the meal together. We're certainly not opposed to having "breakfast" for dinner either. In the summer it's so much easier since everything is fresh and my husband becomes GRILL MAN. Appreciate the suggestions.

first to the team it is always nice meeting new people and getting new input.my favorite light meal is an omlette.it is quick,cheap,healthy,tasty and filling and you can always ring the changes with various filling.and depending on how hungry you are you can always serve it with a salad and some whole wheat bread. another option which is good and can always be prepared in advance is soup.like the omelette you can ring the changes with the differant ingredients you want to use as well as elk it out with bread etc for the more hungrier of you.or what about a nice baked potatoes with a filling of your choice.as your husband is retired i am sure he could just bung the potatoes in the oven in time so they would be ready to eat as you come home.sometimes when i have the munchies but donīt want to cook i just have raw chopped up vegetable sticks with light dips.i.e low fat creamed cheese with chives.the dip choice is yours.or i just make myself a nice fresh fruit salad with greek yogurt.grilled grapefruit is also nice for a change.i could go on like this for hours so i had better stop.hope at least one of my suggestions were of help.once again
Hello. My name is Gloria and I'm a newby. My husband is retired, my daughter (still) lives at home, and my son lives in Arizona. I work 4-10 hour days a week but get home late. For that reason, I'm looking for lighter meals for the dinner hour since we eat later than I'd like. Thanks.
