Whoa! I Failed To Blog Yesterday!

But…I had a really good reason…I can barely put this book down! You might be wondering why…so…here are my key points! I would do anything you can to grab up this book!

 

  1. The chapters are relatively short and once at the end of each chapter you feel compelled to read on!
  2. The writing flows!
  3. This author writes a captivating story!
  4. The characters…are so pathetically flawed!
  5. One character is so stupid and selfish that I want to scream…notice I am not giving anything away!

The only problem with this book is that I will be in a slump about what to read next!

This…or…

Perhaps this?

 

What we are cooking this week end…because…

this past week was a tough chemo week…it’s not the chemo side affects of that show Thirty Something? It’s more achy, bitchy, crying…when everyone around me is telling me to be happy…but I had a double dose of the treatment and my little body suffers! This past Wednesday I had a really small short treatment and so far I feel awesome…and I want to cook, bake, sauté, dance, and fire up my new slowcooker! So…I am making…

…easy bread from Port and Fin…filled with Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Spinach!
An Italian Minestrone!

A Slow Cooker Mexican Lasagna from 100 Days Of Food!

And to make up for my ‘roid rage I am making Den my Grandmother’s sautéed chicken that he loves! It’s sautéed in one pan with carrots and potatoes and shallots and is totally yummy!
So…that’s my Thursday! Hopefully you are having a great one!
Hugs,
Patty

    I will…and I know…they thought I would not lose my hair but it has been falling out in clumps…I spent an hour just wailing over it…I am never without a hat now and I look stupid! I feel like everyone is looking at me.

    I don't think I can relive any of this…it scares me to my soul. I just want to be blessed enough to be able to take these hits and get through all of this. Thank you…there is much good…and I can see it everywhere. I am actually nicer and kinder.

    I'm sorry the chemo has been a roller coaster so far. It probably affects patients differently so don't feel any guilt over it. I'm glad you're immersed in a good book. The orphan one looks really good. There's a giveaway on GR so I've entered it. That bread looks super delicious! And how sweet of you to make Den his grandmother's favorite stew.

    My SIL had breast cancer twice and she lost most of her hair both times, so she had her hair cut in a short pixie cut (do people even call it that anymore?) & wore earrings and held her head high. I know you love your hair… but it might soothe your uncomfortable feeling if you have it “evened out”. Just a suggestion; you will know what is best for your psyche.

    Yummy recipes– glad you are doing well enough to whip up some great dinners for you and Den! Enjoy eating when you feel the urge!

    I've been seeing The Couple Next Door around a lot lately and I'm pretty intrigued, I also love the cover because it takes a bit to figure it out.

    I'm sending you a recipe for a sauce that my family loves. It's how I get Omega 3s in them. It's also full of B vitamins. We're never without it.
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 
    1/4 cup tamari (traditional brew)
    Two or three cloves of garlic or garlic powder to taste
    1/3 cup flax oil
    1/3 cup olive oil
    2/3 cup nutritional yeast
    Mix till smooth in blender or with stick blender
    For thicker sauce:
    Presoak one heaping tablespoon of Chia seed in the water for several hours or overnight.
    Blend as usual
    Use as salad dressing, 
    vegetable dip, sandwich dip, on potatoes, eggs, apples, tacos, tofu, or just about anything.😄🍴
