Have an appointment tomorrow about the knee, which is much worse today. My friend Tess came over, and coincidentally, the Peapod order I put in yesterday was delivered early, while she was here, and she put everything away for me. Very grateful. I will never be able to repay her for all she does for me, not the least of which is making me laugh a lot. Good friends are good. Keep them.
I bought ingredients for my ‘even in pain, I can make this’ soup. Bring chicken broth to a boil, add stuff, cook til done. Eat for a few meals. I started with just chicken and prosciutto tortellini, which I love, then branched out by adding a package of fresh cauliflower, broccoli florets and baby carrots. So good and easy. Nothing to chop, peel, or anything else. Open package, dump into pot. Almost as easy as ‘open box, eat contents’ which is what I do a lot of when pain is ruling my life. This time I am doing the broth and tortellini, and am going to use cubed butternut squash and a small bag of collard greens. Bet I could add a can of beans, too. Thinking about it. No end to already prepped things you could add. Wish I had thought of this years ago. Real food, that tastes delicious, is easy, variable, and gives me several meals. What’s not to love?
Now I am listening to Songs From The Wood, by Jethro Tull. I love Jethro Tull. Not everything, but this one especially. Good times.
