The kitten seems to be pretty much back to normal. I changed the bed yesterday and she "helped", and for the first time since I got her I don't have bloody scratches on my hands. She certainly does love flipping sheets and smoothing them out, so many things to catch! She was back to napping with the other two cats today, so life is getting back to normal. It will take awhile for the spay wound to heal, and about three months for all the fur to grow back. She was 7 weeks old and 12 oz when I brought her home, and 5.5 pounds at 6 months. She is going to be a big cat.

Just got home from the office, and cooking the cacciatore is not going to happen. It will be leftover pot pie again. Thank heavens for leftovers. I am determined to get home and cook tomorrow. We will see how the best of intentions works. Nell how is the kitten.

Tonight I made spicy potato and cauliflower with tofu, and tossed in yogurt. The recipe called for just adding tofu cubes, but they fall apart that way, so I deep fried them in 375 degree oil. It makes the cubes brown with a crisp skin which I then salt. I ended up with exactly as much oil as I started with,so not much was absorbed. This is where full fat yogurt makes a difference, it doesn't break when hot food is added. The joys of maintenance!

Yes, that was quite a race at Talladega. I've never seen so many crashes in one race, a couple of them airborne, just about every car sustained some kind of damage.

It IS hard to cook smaller quantities. Fortunately I always make extra to give to one of my sons who doesn't cook.

The vet finally gave me the pain med for the kitten that I wanted in the first place. It's a tiny bit of liquid that is in a plastic applicator, so I can squirt it in her mouth before she knows what's going on,and she can't spit it out like she does a pill. I told them I will not use the cone. My cats do not have to endure anything they don't want to endure, particularly in their own home.

I made meat loaf last night, a perfect meal for a cold, miserable day.

The sun is out and it is supposed to get in the sixties today. Last night I tried a new recipe for margarita pizza. It was great, and quick and easy today my plan is to make a chicken pot pie for dinner. Hope the kitten gets a clean bill of health at her visit today.

Last night I made pork chops. More meat than I usually eat, but yum!

I leave in about 20 minutes to take the kitten back to the vet for her post-surg check. I've never had to do that before in nearly 50 years of cat ownership.

Condo disasters all day long, terrible communication, I have no idea what is going on. Our property manager keeps going behind our backs, telling us she is "doing her job". I missed lunch so had my lunch at 5 and called it dinner.

The kitten is sleeping a lot and desperate for love. I tried to give her a pain pill, but she fought me and gagged it up twice, so I threw it out. I took that awful cone off right away when I got her home, and she hasn't worried her incision. She was declawed at the same time, so her paws are sore. They used the laser for the declaw, so there is less removed and the wounds closed right away. More expensive but worth it. I tried to tell her the pain pill would help, but she didn't listen. She is drinking and eating well, though, which is good. Her follow up visit is Saturday. This sending cats home the day of surgery is new. All my older cats have stayed at the vet's for two days.

The last few days have been a disaster at work. Tuesday I had no dinner, Wednesday we had hamburgers, last night lamb shanks cooked in a tomato sauce over polenta. Tonight small tenderloin steaks, roasted potatoes, and slaw. I am so ready for the weekend. How is your kitten Nell?

Good morning! Was at doctors with hubby yesterday for his cyst on his face and the doctor had to put a needle in it cause it was swollen some so he did that and just said to put cold compass on it 4 times a day and return next Friday? And hear I thought we would be done with seeing the doctor?
Last night made 3 ways with chili spaghetti,onions,cheese and oyster crackers! Very good and it was easy to prepare too.

I was planning pork chops for dinner, but they didn't have any at the grocery store this afternoon. I am shocked, but I'll make tomorrow night's dinner tonite, and go to Costco tomorrow for pork chops. They never run out, even if I have to freeze 3/4 of them.

Tonight I made barley and dried mushroom and lima bean soup. My hubby picked out all the mushrooms. He has decided he won't eat mushrooms anymore, fresh or dried, any type. The list of foods he'll eat gets shorter and shorter. I use mushrooms in my marinara sauce, but since it's well blended he can't tell. I used to have to cook like that when my boys were little, but they outgrew it by the time they were teens. Sigh.

My e-mail server decided to change the rules for the password. I spent an hour on the phone before they could figure out the problems. My E-mail is now restored. Last night pork chops on top of potatoes topped with peas. Tonight will be roasted chicken thighs with mushrooms, on top of sautéed collards with orange chunks topped with mushrooms and orange vinaigrette chunks and sauce from chicken thighs. I am also at goal and have the same choice Nell made which is to keep the portions the same, but upgrade the ingredients.

I use healthy recipes, but since I'm at goal I prefer to up the type of ingredients rather than go for larger portions or desserts. I'll use full fat yogurt or sour cream in a recipe now. "Healthy" doesn't always mean low fat or low calorie. I'll even deep fry once or twice a year, but that's the only fried food I eat. And even then I don't eat much of it.

I do try to stick with the healthy choice type recipes. There are so many new recipes that are for people that are trying to eat healthy. I don't always manage to do the healthy choice LOL.

I loved to try new recipes but it's not always healthy choices I make? Last night had dirty rice added some other ingredients and it was really good!
Hope everyone has a good Friday?

It sounds like everyone is eating well. LOL. Why does someone elses food sound so much better than what you are eating. I am glad to have someone cooking for me for a while but I am getting ready to have something that I want. I love to try new recipes.

I agree Nell. It got further complicated by the fact that the meeting served breakfast. Normally I have a light breakfast. Today I had a small serving of scrambled eggs, a small serving of roasted potato, orange juice, and fresh fruit. My normal routine is small yogurt for breakfast, small serving of leftovers from the last night's dinner and my main meal is dinner.

I have beef and pork paprikash almost ready now. Long day at the condo and a class at church tonight.

Sophie, one of the reasons I don't like to eat lunch out is that no matter how hard I try, I end up too full for dinner.

I had meetings all day today. I did manage to meet a friend for a late lunch. We went to my favorite Indian restaurant. The food was excellent, and I doubt I will even consider dinner tonight. Going back after a meeting.

Met a friend at lunch yesterday, tonight I have my trivia game which is at a restaurant I have never been to, tomorrow night I am making cookies for Passover with my son's GF, and Friday I am going to Seder at her family's. Doing a lot of eating out this week.I might be ok on Friday--last year, the meal was inedible!

I'll be spending most of the day at the condo. Dinner will have to be a one hour meal tonite. At some point I have to do my own chores instead of someone else's.

We canned the secretary this morning. All she said was "Ok, bye". When we asked her for our cell phone, she said she had it at home and had to go get it. It's a brand new phone we provide so she can be in touch with people on a property that is spread out, and she didn't even have it on her. She lives 10 minutes away, and it took her an hour and a half. She came back with a friend and handed it to our manager through her car window. She obviously doesn't want to work. The next time I hear a politician talk about unmarried mothers desperately needing jobs to support their children, I think I'll scream. And she's not the first employee we have had that we've had to fire for refusing to actually work. I've done more work over there in the last week than she did in the last 5 months, and I am a volunteer.

Not much time tonight so I made a quiche. Quick and yummy.

I ove lamb shanks! I am back on the mainland for meetings will return on Thursday at 5pm. Stopped to pick up my new glasses, and stopped at a small neighborhood place for pasta with fresh clam sauce. Now I am at our condo relaxing.

The kids made a nice dinner. Roast chicken, ratatouille, and roast potatoes, and salad. Ice cream and berries for dessert.
