Too much for a lunch later this week, so it's leftover pork roast and skillet roasted potatoes from yesterday. No appetite today, which makes this quite adequate. Do want something sweet, but nothing in the house. Maybe a handful of chocolate chips.

Desparation rears its ugly head. When you need a sweets fix, you go to extremes.

I have been known to put peanut butter and jam on a toaster waffle when I had to have something sweet.

Take the drugs all the way to the end so you kick that bug. I wish I were closer so I could bring you some chicken soup and crusty NYT bread. As my Jewish friend used to say about chicken soup (he called it Jewish penicillin); "It won't help ya, but it won't hoit ya either."

Get well soon.

OK everyone, don't laugh until you've tried it! When I'm really desperate I'll make a butter and sugar sandwich (after all, it requires NO baking). The butter has to be really soft though.

And I had MORE TOMATO PIE for dinner - there's only a sliver left and that will be breakfast unless my DH eats it when he gets home - I'd almost pay him to eat it! I just couldn't bring myself to waste it though.

I had BBQ Chicken, Baked Sweet Potatoe and Peas and Carrots.

Balsamic BBQ Sauce

1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir until all the ingredients are incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by 1/3, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and you've really got something
