Post-surgical cooking hacks

I will be in a sling for about four weeks while my left shoulder recuperates from surgery. I am right handed. I do most of the planning and cooking for our family (2-3 people). Any suggestions for easy, nutritious, mostly warm (and primarily vegetarian) lunches (for me) and dinners (for us)? I will have some support from my husband for one meal a day.
Thank you!

Make some really good chicken stock & freeze it in 2 cup portions. You now have the base for your favorite soups which you can make ahead and freeze and reheat easily.

remember that you can go to your local supermarket salad bar to get chopped onions, celery etc.

Cook in smaller quantities and pots, so you can lift easily with on arm.

Slow cooker and one pan meals. Check out the new contest entries. Lots of great ideas. Good luck and warm wishes for a speedy recovery. BB💐
