Last night I made an awesome batch of pulled pork.  Was a 2.5lb pork ribeye roast, put in the crockpot with some BBQ sauce (I use Stubbs), gluten-free soy sauce, and some seasonings, cooked on high for 1.5 hours, then low for 7 hours.  Served over mashed potatoes and baked beans on the side.  Eating that for dinner again today, I may make sandwiches.

I am going to cook my first trout tonight. I've never cooked one before but an uncle is an avid fisher and catches far more than they can comfortably eat. So I told him as long as it doesn't have a head on it, we'll take them. (I do NOT do food that looks back at me, it creeps me the hell out.) I hope I still like it, I haven't had trout since I was a teen.

The trout was a hit. Yay!!! I can let my husband's uncle know to send more over if he has spares. I've never had to deal with a mostly whole fish before though, so that was a challenge. I suppose practice will make perfect.

 

Recently my husband said he wants to make a bbq ranch chicken pizza. Something we used to make all the time together. But, I've only bought pizza crusts up til now (from Venice Bakery) and we don't have any at the moment. So I picked up a Chebe mix and we're test driving it tonight as bread sticks with pasta and meatballs. If all goes well, we'll upgrade to our pizza probably in the immediate future.

 

I also had my first day of PT today. Got my evaluation and a list of home exercises. I'm so glad I got referred to someone who already knows what they need to about my disease. I'm sick of explaining to medical people exactly what is and isn't appropriate, so doing that with a physical therapist would just get incredibly awkward. Thursday she'll put me in the pool, and I'm feeling very hopeful about it all since she seems to know what she's doing with me and CRPS. The longer I can put off my first neck stabbing (stellate ganglion block) the happier I'll be. :)

Seriously, it hit 100 yesterday and we opted for cold Costco chicken, cold salad and cold cantaloupe. Tonight it is grilled pork tenderloin and more cold salad and fruit. It is expected to be even HOTTER! Ugh! What happened to "Gray May" (ocean-driven, cloudy-overcast that typically occurs until noon and keeps temperatures moderate)? I sure hope "June Gloom" happens, but this weather has been wacky!

Better brew more ice tea!

ooooh, ok, this is where I get to say "I told ya so" but I won't. LOL

You're going to feel better. I can hoestly say that the PT and MT was what got me out of extreme pain and back in the game. You have to make pain to get out of pain, though, sorry. It's part of the healing process and the retraining of the muscles, getting the nerves to stop misfiring.... just do as you're told, young lady.  ^_^

Crazy here too. high 80s -low 90s...but not humid, thank goodness. I am sure June-Sept. will be a different story. Stay cool! :)

Greetings from Sunny San Diego....seems a fire bug or terrorist has figured out a way to tax our emergency services to the breaking point.

 

Thankfully, the Santa Ana winds that were not predicted to calm for another few days have calmed a bit more than expected -- hopefully giving San Diego County and CalFire crews time to take control of the damage caused by this wackadoodle.

 

I'm in "BubbleGirl Mode" wet bandanas or N95 mask as needed, ice packs packing my torso while getting the house ready if we have unexpected guests from East County later in the day.

 

On the good news -- had an incredibly beautiful couple days in Yosemite and King's Canyon with my wonderful hubs -- just sad to drive home to multiple fires visible as we drove into San Diego County.

 

Dinner will be something simple as I'm not sure how many guests we may have between our family and my kids friends that are close to the evac areas.

sons of bill - wrote a song called 'santa ana winds'  - it's pretty great (and they are pretty nice fellers, too)  check 'em

 

tonight is:  skip ;)

 

last night i made swedish meatballs w/noodles <would have been good with zoodles, tho) and carrots.  i accidently got whole wheat pasta instead of regular for the hubs (most nights i just make all gluten-free pasta, but sometimes i gotta spoil him) anyways, back to the wheat:  he bitched so hard about the whole wheat!  i was like wth!  lololz what is this GAME of LOVE that i CANNOT WIN !!!????   ^_^

 

still fooling with house painters.  this is how it goes:  i have a list of painters referred from various sources.  i call a painter, and he tells me he is booked through till july.  we paint a little more on the house.  i call the next one on the list.  he tells me an outrageous price and then tells me they can't touch the level of workmanship that my husband has already done (basically, we're going to rob you and do crappy work) i tell them how much money i have to spend.  we paint a little more on the house.  i go buy a ladder stabilizer and five gallons of paint.  i call the next painter on the list.  tells me he'll calll me back between 5-6 pm.  no call.  we paint a little more on the house.  the second painter calls me back.  they now know how much $$ we have to spend and are determined to separate us from it.   they want to come and and do a REALLY crappy job.  we paint a little more on the house..................  

 

we are nearly finished painting.   <_<
