In atrocious news, I’ve herniated two discs in my back, and I’m in astronomical amounts of pain. It got so bad I had Rob take me to the ER in a desperate attempt to get some relief and figure out what was wrong. On the positive side, I’ve got some decent pain pills and I start physical therapy Monday. On the negative side, I’m still in crazy amounts of pain, and I’m worried that I might have to have back surgery. 🙁 Not the best news for the summer, but I’m trying to stay as positive as I can.
With all that excitement I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen. So with this week’s fruits and veggies, we’ve got a very full fridge, and I need to do some meal planning! This week we received:
- Two ears of corn! I love it when corn season begins
- Two heads of lettuce
- Two different types of green onions
- one head of garlic
- one cute little green pepper
- one huge beet
- three summer squash
- a bunch of carrots
- four apricots
- a pound and a half of cherries
- a bunch of green beans
This evening I made a nice chicken pot pie, and that used up a bit of the veggies, but we’ve still got enough around here to feed an army. We still have quite a few cherries left over from last week, so I think I’ll make a cherry tart tomorrow and use those up before they get too ripe.
Have a great week, and think some healing thoughts my way, please!
