Happy New Year, everyone! Here's a brief description of my life at the moment:
Still not able to keep up with posting on SP like I'd like to.
I've actually been using Spark Recipes quite a bit, though, as I've been doing most of the cooking for dparents and myself. As a long-time, live-alone single, this is new for me and is giving me new admiration for the housewives among us who do this as a full-time job. Menu-planning! Shopping and following the sales and coupon offers! Keeping the freezer stocked! Using the leftovers!
Today I have chili in the crockpot. Tomorrow I'm roasting a turkey breast and we'll have all the sides and fixings as well. Good thing Dmom remembers how to do all this stuff. She's still too sidetracked and a little uncoordinated to do much work in the kitchen, but she's a great teacher and cooking adviser.
Haven't done much jogging the past few days as I pulled a muscle in my back on Saturday. That has slown me down some but I'm keeping up on my daily walks. That quiet time in the morning is my lifeline and I guard it fiercely! Have even made it to the beach a few times. Even though my reason for being here is not all happy, it sure helps to be in this paradise on earth called SW Florida!
