Thanks, I am feeling a fair bit better, but I still have the dumb.

I cooked up 2 lbs of shrimp in garlic butter with lemon, crab cakes and cheesy rice. It was my first time cooking shrimp like that. Normally, I get them frozen already cooked and just warm them up. These were raw. They tasted good though.

I did an oven beer butt chicken that turned out great, a cheesy casserole of cauliflower topped with buttered Panko crumbs and broiled. Check out this avocado with the GIANT pit I opened for the green salad.

Wow. Not much avocado left.

I've been driving to another pizza shop for our pizzas as they have been the best around. If the new place is as good, delivery will make the difference.
I guess I'll be driving to pick up my pizzas for a while yet.

Too bad. It really would have been nice to have a great delivery pizza place.

I was planning to make turkey stuffed steamed peppers but another day of no energy and I had to go to the store for some ingredients and with the small skiff of snow (which has melted and hardened and is now ice) I wasn't able to venture out.

So, my beloved TB came and picked me up after a full day of driving other people in need around and took me shopping. There was no time (or energy) to make the dish so we bought a rotisserie chicken and salads.

After years of catering, entertaining, working in restaurants and just being a home foodie, I now have to come to terms with the fact I can't always do what I want to and need to cut corners.

The realization came when I had to give up my church "job" of coordinating meals for those in need and actually having to ask my replacement for a freezer meal once in awhile "just in case". Very humbling.

You got "robbed" Kayelle! :(

We had pork chops with onion gravy, mashed potatoes, the last of the broccoli, and Brussels sprouts and some asparagus.

As I was pulling items out for salads I realize I had so many leftovers I probably shouldn't cook. Too bad. Not! All gone are the brats and sauerkraut, mac & cheese, pretzel bun chicken sandwich, and various veggies. New leftovers start getting made tomorrow.

Himself forgot to put some Guggisberg Swiss cheese on his sandwich, so he figured he'd soften it in the microwave. In plastic wrap. I should have taped a video of him practically pouring it from the plastic to his sandwich!
