omg my husband does this too! He'll be all I feel bad that you can't X. Then he'll just do it without me, so he obviously didn't feel that bad! :lol:

 

I had mango chile popsicles to feel better. Its amazing how you turn into a kid again when you're sick. :) I had pizza last night. We went to the farmers market that is in a large shopping center which also happens to be home to my favorite pizza place. He wanted pizza so he got me pizza so he wouldn't have to feel guilty. I was not complaining. :D

 

I may have also gotten a fat artichoke, some purple cauliflower, fresh peaches and blackberries and I don't remember what else. But none of that was as noteworthy as pizza.

 

Popsicles freeze up my throat so it hurts less. I ate about 12 yesterday. I haven;t had one in years. LOL

And in fairness to my hubs, he went and got more popsicles in the morning and he put up with me being sick for many years, so of course he should go and have fun. He was appropriately sad for me. :D

His main concern is always what trouble Lucy will get into while he is gone for a few hours.

I watched movies all afternoon and was BORED stiff. I walked around outside and felt as if I had walked a mile.

Man, I hate being sidelined like this. 

 

Tonight is looking like simple again. Still feel kinda punky, but better, so yaaay!!.

 

I think BLT's on toast with an ear of corn (or two) works.

Oh I only give my husband a hard time about it because its funny. :)

 

We picked our first corn out of the garden. So that is for supper with something else. I'm thinking meatloaf maybe. And onion rings. We'll have our blackberries with some ice cream for dessert.

I made enchilada's tonight! I made my own seasoning for the meat, then I had Gluten Free wrap hubb's was full gluten :) I made mine in a separate pan :)  1st time I actually made the seasoning myself. He LOVED it!! Didn't ask anything. I asked him how it was and he said , It is really good! I said , I want the truth , Is it ok or good? He said "This is really really good" So I was happy!! :) Mine was really good to! I just didn't eat mine till he was done. I make his lunch for the next day while he eats.

I ended up making a cauliflower gratin with my purple cauliflower last night instead of onion rings. Tonight will be the rest of that with the rest of the meatloaf and more corn. I always knew I missed having silver corn, but didn't realize just how much until I had it again last night. Its something you can't just go pick up at the store or market, so you grow it yourself or you don't have any. We grew mostly silver queen and butter & sugar on the farm, and I've always kind of resented having to buy yellow corn because it just plain old isn't as good.

I grew up in Kansas City. Lovely sweet corn. Got married and moved to the Washington, DC area. They ate feed corn! I swear! It wasn't sweet corn!

We have fabulous corn here, even in the groceries.

There isn't anything necessarily wrong with the corn in stores here. It is sweet corn and I buy it and eat it when we don't have any of our own to eat. It just isn't what I prefer and grew up eating, and frankly "plain" yellow corn isn't nearly half as good as a silver variety or butter & sugar corn, which are also just both varieties of sweet corn. Of course, that is just my spoiled rotten, grew up on a farm with more options than yellow corn opinion.

 

We've been terrible people this summer, not really eating a whole lot of salads like we usually do. Tonight we'll have salads with some baked chicken and something else vegetabley... maybe a baked potato since the oven will be on anyway. (Don't nobody start the potatoes aren't really a vegetable thing, my husband will actually eat them so they count. <_<)

You might think I'm crazy but we are having chili tonight!  It cooks in the crockpot so it doesn't heat up the house.  Then we make some corn pasta to put it on or make it into a taco salad.

That isn't crazy at all. I love easy, don't overheat the house, crockpot dinners in the summer.

I think you're crazy, sweets,(in the oh-so-cool way)  but not for THIS!  :lol:

Crockpots--thanks to you--are my new "go-to" thinger when I do not want to heat up the house or when I am too busy to stand there and watch food. Chili over rice with a corn muffin...YUM.

 

That's not what I made, though. Not tonight.

 

I got corn --the one we call "butter and sugar"--from  Calhoun's farm stand (near me here in NY)

and honestly, it is just the best corn I ever had. We wait for it every summer.

 

Plain yellow corn--they call it  "cattle feed " here--blech.

 

and I made a meatloaf--yes, it is cool enough to run the oven (weirdo weather)

and J requested one of the versions of potato salad I make with hard boiled eggs and dill. (he loves it)

 

And he thinks potatoes are a veggie, Addy!! :D

Maybe its a guy thing? I've tried explaining to my husband that I grew up with dinner being meat, potato, vegetable. He keeps trying to tell me every time that potatoes are a vegetable. I'm like whatever... they're not that kind of vegetable. He harasses me on purpose to see how long it will take me to realize that he is just doing it to amuse himself. After 5 years I'm starting to catch on. ;)
