Yesterday was a perfectly delightful peaceful day. It involved reading, word game playing, talking to family and eating. Den cooked a tenderloin…and yummy roasted baby potatoes and we had the perfect Gingerbread Cake from Wegman’s. I love that Wegman’s is seasonal…certain things are made at certain times. You can only get this cake at Christmas. We had icy cold shrimp, too…so yummy! The inside of this cake is big stripes of gingerbread and whipped cream!
I am almost finished with Lisa Scottoline’s new book. Again…she lives near me so all of the places she writes about are familiar to me. It makes these books so much more fun to read.
Today is an even more low key day than yesterday…we don’t have to really do anything and it’s cold enough to want to stay in. It’s weird how I can be tired from a holiday even though not much was going on during the holiday. I want to make a simple meatless lasagna for tomorrow because we always crave something Italian after Christmas and Thursday is Pasta Thursday anyway. I have to get a cat scan tomorrow because I am midway through chemo and Dr. Costello wants to know where we are…I am trying to not be scared and stressed over this. Trying hard…whew!
So…I am watching reruns of The Great British Baking Show and we started Homecoming on Amazon Prime which seemed really good but Den and I both fell asleep during it. Sigh!
Possible books up next…such a perfect wife isn’t out until May but it’s taunting me!
Have a restful Wednesday!
