Another week when I didn’t fulfill my menu as planned. This time I got sick!
It was totally out of the blue. Sunday I was fine. Monday I could barely hold my head up. I feel better now, but still sniffling and sneezing.
I was sorry to miss Thanksgiving with my friends. Greg fried a turkey. It wasn’t the elegant spread I usually put out but it was a wonderful meal. Greg did everything. I attempted mashed potatoes, but really all I did was mash the potatoes and put in the right amount of milk and sour cream.
Tip: For really great tasting smashed taters, drop in a few spoonfuls of sour cream.
This week, the menu will be simple. I’m still a bit too weak for anything labor intensive. I’m keeping it simple too in case Greg wants to take over the cooking duties.
During my sick week, I watched a documentary on Jamestown, where the settlers starved to death and resorted to cannibalism. The majority died of disease long before they starved. Makes you glad we have meds and doctors. I would’ve been a goner had I contracted the flu back then–and probably taken most of the population with me.
Sobering thought for the week. No matter how bad you think you have it, it’s nowhere near as bad as it used to be.
