My health has remained stable for almost two weeks and I’m beginning to think I’m actually, finally, “ok.” I want to take advantage of my good health and enjoy as much variety in food as I can, while I can. To that end, I’ve been trying to make new foods/meals every night:
Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad wedges
Tuna Steak with Orange and Soy Sauce
Hawaiian Luau Sweet & Sour Chicken
Paella w/Pork, Chicken, Sausage, and Shrimp
Steamed Clams and Mussels in White Wine sauce
Duck Fillet with Plum Sauce
I am constantly perusing cookbooks and on-line recipes for the next exciting meal to prepare. Tomorrow, however, we’ll take a small break from more exciting meals and have chicken burgers and tater tots. I need the extra time I’d otherwise use to prepare a meal, to pack and get ready for a visit this weekend to CT to visit the BFJ. His husband will be in their condo in P-town for the long holiday weekend, and my husband will be home enjoying time alone, away from my “what should we do now” energy, so who knows what trouble we’ll get into, left to our own devices. (Translation: we will crochet, assemble jigsaw puzzles, have cocktails, watch “Moonstruck” (again), and maybe squeeze in a walk or two at the reservoir if the weather cooperates.) It will be nice to be away for a couple days, just to get out of the house, where I spend 99.5% of my time these days. Both Jeffrey and I are on vacation next week, so I will return home to enjoy the rest of our “staycation”, doing nothing more than day trips, drives, dog walks, and hopefully some new, adventurous meals. (Any suggestions?) Not the most exciting of plans, admittedly, but I’m looking forward to it none-the-less.

The meals sound delicious. I hope all of you enjoy your weekend plans, either solo or with friends. Superman was out of town last weekend and I enjoyed my alone time.
They were fun to make and came out fairly well. We are going to enjoy our stay-cation as much as possible.
That’s the plan. 🙂
A week off, do whatever you desire. Enjoy!
Going to try to.
The only thing I would suggest is to not wake up to an alarm. Sleep in while you can, but then go out and enjoy the rest of the day. Even something simple as that can make things better.
All alarms are off. My guts rarely let me sleep past 4am, and if I do, Harvey has me up at but i won’t be woken by aalrms this week, for sure.
Oh, man! Everything on that list sounds exquisite. Let me know what time to be there.
P.S.: Sorry to be so late to the party. I’ve tried and tried to follow your blog but nothing worked. (Not your problem.) I think today I found a backdoor! (Ahem)
I’m so excited you’re here. Better late than never! I don’t recall my back door being so difficult to find ;-P
less is none; stay at home cooking sounds scrumptious !
