The one 'positive' is that children bounce back so much more quickly than adults. So I hope the recovery is quick.

Changed my mind about spaghetti. I forgot I put some white beans in water last night. So I'm fixing white beans with something??? I have them simmering right now with carrots, onions, celery & bay leaf. Will remove vegetables in an hour or so and decide how to finish them tonight. Took out some chicken breasts (bone in) to roast.

seems like a hundred hours ago that I started this post. sleep didn't evade me after I remembered my sisters advice about taking Alka Seltzer Cold which helps one sleep. I think the prednisone is what's keeping me up. Steroids must do that ,yes?

The white beans and the chicken would make a wonderful white chili. The recipe in San Francisco Chronicle has the best recipe for it. Simply wonderful.

I wanted to mention that all of you freezing there back east ought to move out west, it's warmer here. I feel so sorry for you all that it's so blasted cold there. Then I walk outside and play with my doggies, and remove my sweater, cause it's nice out. Our recent freezes have really done a number on our plants out here in southern California. My cactus and everyone's cactus is dead. Our Palms are too. Our citrus and avocados are all dead too.

They can do that, Lefse. I was on prednisone for a stretch of time a couple of years ago (for a bad flare-up of my asthma) and really struggled sleeping. When I did, it was a bad, restless sleep. Check with your doc to see if you can take something like Tylenol PM to help you.

Hope you don't have to be on them for too long!

I've got some Cheesy Nacho Chicken in the crockpot. Will probably add a baked potato and a green salad to round out the meal.

It's warmer here today then it has been lately. We actually had snow on the ground Thursday afternoon. But, it was gone by Fri. morning. That's one good thing about Texas! The snow can be here today, and gone tomorrow!

Enjoy your day!

Being ill this weekend, cooking hasn't been a top priority outside of heating up Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup (the cure all) and grilled cheese. I just picked up supper for tonight: Subway.

Mrs. - 6" turkey on white w/ lettuce & mayo

Mine - Footlong Subway Club (turkey, ham, roast beef) with cukes, baby spinach, carrots, green bell peppers, red onion, lettuce, banana peppers, and some (light) mayo.

Tonight we are going to attempt to roast our mock tenderloin and serve with a Merlot sauce. Not sure about the sides yet.

Smile Tasty stir fry

Just had a delicious stir fry that my wife and I cooked together. Onions, garlic, mushrooms, red and green peppers, scallions with brown rice added, HP sauce stirred into the wok, a small amount of tomato sauce, breadcrumbs, oregano and parsley and basil (dried) added in and all stirred together. Absolutely delicious! We were going to save some but there's none left! LOL

Don't know what to call it, but it sure was good. Usually when I pull a meat from the freezer, I know what I plan to do with it. But not this time, all I knew was I still have some ground chevon that needed eaten. So I sauteed an onion and browned the meat. Then I added a quart jar of home canned pork and beans and another jar of home canned green beans with the liquid. It made a stew that was soupy enough I needed to serve it in a bowl, with some grated parmesan on top. Sounds pretty strange but it was delicious. Served it with herbed rolls.
