I'm doing the driving and lifting of Aja in the car when we go for rides. In six weeks all restrictions will be lifted. Hopefully. Probably.
Since he's been home from the hospital Aja, probably deflecting attention toward herself (kidding), developed a bladder infection. Scary thing was a diagnosis of possible chronic kidney failure for her. We will get a recheck in two weeks. What a start to the month! Bottom line is - everyone is fine. Whew!
Moving to the "recovery meal menu" I present the following which we've recently enjoyed. I've been having fun in the kitchen.
Starting with Bacon, Corn Potato Chowder - a recipe from Curtis Stone. It's filling and served with fresh baguette it makes a decent lunch. Plus it's easy and fun to make.
Here we have one from Moosewood Cooks at Home, North African Couscous.
Easy, fast and light. You could switch out the shrimp for tofu if you wanted purely vegetarian fare.
Chicken Marsala isn't always on the rotation but when I remember it it's a hit. We served it over angel hair pasta as I didn't have egg noodles on hand. Would have sworn there was a bag in the pantry but the angel hair pasta worked well.
Lasagna. This batch came out very well and made several meals and a lunch. I've had quite a few lasagna recipes tried out but this one is always the best.
Finally, last but not least, is the bacon wrapped peach chicken. Asparagus with Parmesan cheese didn't go amiss with this one. This was a regular and we gave it good break as we didn't want to get tired of it.
As I said, Doug is up and moving around and recovering well. We were able to enjoy good meals and settle in to watch movies and listen to music as we usually do. Aja is also recovering from her illness, poor old girl.
Life is good.
I want to share some photos from our last camping trip to Lake Seminole Georgia. We got that one in before we were housebound for a bit. Coming up soon.....
