Here it is in a nutshell:  Tuesday, while dh and I were out with our son Adam buying all kinds of cool stuff for Jackson (Sam was working), I started with a horrible stabbing spasm on the outside of my left knee and it had me screaming even after the muscle relaxers, ice packs and NSAIDS.

Pain doctor put me on constant MRs until I see him Monday morning.  

So I’m a “cotton” head.

Cooking is what I’m able to manage.  Luckily (I guess), I made dinner on Tuesday night, can’t remember Wednesday whatsoever (dh was working so I didn’t worry about eating), Thursday dh took out a rack of lamb.

Really?  I managed to coat it in Dijon and some garlic I believe and sliced some tomatoes and he made some pasta.

Friday dh helped install the fan we bought for Jackson’s room with Adam.  Sam and Adam made dinner that night.  I guess they didn’t mind my roaming mind or the screaming when a spasm struck.

Saturday-that was fun-we went out with dh’s co-workers for their quarterly thank you dinner.  It was fun, but I’m still blitzed and you can only hear so many stories about incidents that you know nothing about, right?

So at this very moment, there’s a piece of salmon that dh took out for dinner.  I asked him to buy some veggies-MEN.

He bought 2 1 pound bags of baby carrots, 4 tomatoes and 2 avocadoes.

Too woozy to start shopping and lifting.  So we‘re having an orange night.  I’ll broil the salmon and top it with some mango salsa (in a jar and waiting to be used), I’ll steam some of the carrots with some cinnamon and drizzle some honey over them and last but not least-I’ll put together some whole wheat couscous and add some dried mango, papaya and pepitas to it.

Okay, I know-the couscous is dark brown, but in my condition I’ll just be glad to get the food made.

Here’s hoping your Sunday supper and the rest of the week will be better than what I have a feeling I’ll be enduring.

    • Carine - I do hope you feel better.  I live in a male household  and they‘re the same way, they don’t care for veggies.  However, tonight we WILL be having a salad, dang-it.  With tomatoes, green pepper, carrots, croutons and chicken.

    • sounds good.  I rallied and actually found that dh bought some fresh corn! yeah-4 ears!  woot woot for dh!

      have it soaking now-then I’ll brush w/ some evoo, cumin, garlic and sea salt.  I’ll wrap it in foil and it can join it’s neighbor-the carrots drizzled in coconut oil, splenda and cinnamon (also in packets).  hoping it will all find it’s way onto the grill since the rain has stopped and then all the foil (very un-pc)can get dumped and no clean-up for either dh after a full work day or for me.

    • And all orange supper sound kind of fun actually.  happy

      We had fresh chicken.  I got two locally raised young roosters for free on Friday.  I just had to kill and clean them myself.

      So we had truly fresh oven fried chicken, flavorful, meaty, chicken that was actually chicken sized instead of those mushy tiny nasty flavorless things they sell at the grocery store.  

      I put the chicken in the oven and went out to work on building the fence and told hubby he’d have to find something to go with it.  YOu’d have thought I was asking for the moon.  He had this dazed helpless look on his face when I walked out the door.  He did manage to microwave a bowl of frozen corn.  Bravo!

    • I don’t know about brave.  It’s something I’ve grown up doing.  Never had a choice in the matter.

      Hope you’ve got your mind back.  I can’t imagine how hard it must be to do stuff in that kind of condition. heart
