This recipe from Smitten Kitchen is the last Fancy thing I cooked before I had a pinched nerve and lost the ability to walk far or stand for long. As far as last meals go, it was pretty good. I made it for FBF on Friday (a couple weeks ago.) Then I made it again on Saturday, this time with sliced avocado instead of guac:
And then one more time on Sunday as the weird pain got worse and worse. I’m glad I had such a hearty breakfast because shortly afterwards I was confined to the couch for 2 weeks. I used up all the salsa on Sunday, and it was pretty, but something was missing. I blame grocery store tomatoes.
This recipe is very versatile and it’s obviously a keeper. It turns out, I am a much happier person in the kitchen than on the couch, so I brought a chair into the kitchen so I can start cooking again as I heal. I’ll have one more week of less than fancy breakfast posts, and then fingers crossed that I can start to be fancy again!
So sorry to hear you are down and out! Hopefully, your boys are stepping up… If there is anything I can do, I am just around the corner. Where did this school year go?
What’s the update? are you up making toast this morning?
I put oatmeal in the microwave for Jack and I this morning, then I laid down on the couch and had Jack stir it and put it back in for another 20 seconds, so that is progress! And I made lunches, but having Jack bring me all the ingredients while I sat at the dining room table.
