Hello, friends! Welcome back on this Sunday morning. It is very early but I couldn't sleep so I got up and made a blueberry coffee cake for breakfast. Before you think I am so ambitious, it was from a mix. I was going to make muffins, but coffee cake is so much easier.
Thank you to everyone who sent their prayers and good wishes on my tests. They were much easier than I expected (although the doctor said I kept moving around so he didn't think it was easy!). I definitely felt your prayers all around me. The results, however, were not what we had hoped for. A lot of polyps were taken for analysis and I have to see the doctor in six weeks and schedule another surgery after that. I have a feeling 2021 is going to be as bad as 2020 was.
But with all of that said, let me show you some of the dinners we have had this year. We have been calling out for dinner at least once a week. This week was more because I just wasn't up to cooking. I didn't take pictures of those meals, just the ones I made.
New Year's Day (that seems so long ago) I had a pork roast, mashed potatoes and peas and carrots. Everything was delicious.
On Saturday the second we had poached salmon, rice and mixed vegetables. Rice was a nice change. I haven't made it in awhile.
On Sunday the third I used up some leftovers in the refrigerator. Joe had rigatoni with marinara sauce and cheese.
I had a piece of left over salmon with some left over rice.
Continuing on with our left overs, on Tuesday the fifth we had left over pork, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts and mushrooms sauteed in olive oil and butter and applesauce. I added some pork gravy and it was very good.
I had some stewing beef cubes in the freezer so for Wednesday the sixth I made Mississippi pot roast in the crock pot and served it over mashed potatoes with asparagus on the side. We were having work done on the back of our house and I really didn't want to be in the kitchen all that much with the workmen walking over my head. Little bits of dust were falling from the ceiling. The perfect day for a crock pot meal.
And finally on Thursday the seventh I had barbecued chicken thighs made in the air fryer, a baked potato and broccoli crowns.
