We’ve had an unusually cool Spring here in the great SouthWest.  We only hit our first official triple digit day this past week!  Normally we don’t drop below 100 from the beginning of May until end of September!

That said, I’m just not feeling the need to really do much in the way of cooking.  Between the cases of bronchitis and sinus infection and dh’s stomach flu, then the family that all has very difficult dietary restrictions (I’m including my own in there)and then going out of town for a weekend-I’m just fine keeping things VERY simple.

This week the older boys are in Cali for both a family visit and a cruise with DD.  Last week, as soon as I arrived home, I found myself having and resting up from a quite successful cervical epidural.

As I’ve said, taking it easy seems to be a very smart thing to do.

Yesterday I did make a “must go” quick bread.  I had 3 bananas that were very ripe, cereal remnants and a bunch of other goodies.  Very tasty too.

Then our family had another very hard incident and it’s drained us all.  No details shared for personal reasons.

However, we’ll be having a small dinner with the remaining family members (remember DD and older grandsons are cruising).  Simple and tasty.  A meal where there’s a favorite of everyone’s included:

Grilled salmon with a lemon, garlic and pepper rub
Spinach salad with a “goody” bar and a couple of dressings
Orzo made in chicken broth and rosemary

Thinking since we‘re all a might “tired“, dessert will either be a pass or I’ll let everyone try my “must go” bread.

Love it
