second degree burn (oh hey, spilling hot bacon grease!)
prolonged swelling/itching/hive breaking outting of eyelids (oh hey, ALLERGIC TO MY NEW EYELASH CURLER!)
sunburn (oh hey, Dodger’s Stadium and being an idiot who didn’t wear sunscreen!)
Classic! It’s no post-surgery rash they thought was shingles but was a severe allergy/toe surgery/stomach flu (but what ever could be?), but guys, I think I’m still hitting a pretty good stride right now…
Tonight’s dinner included my new signature dish* and a staple of my cooking repertoire that both Jim and I adore**. I am happy and full. We both have a feeling this will be the go to comfort dinner I cook in the future. (He has one he cooks, too, for the record…lamb chops and spinnach pie.) So much good food in our future!
*New signature dish = cheesy pasta casserole. It’s a country gravy based baked macaroni and cheese (but tonight it was penne instead of macaroni, ‘cause that’s what I had in cupboard) with bacon and a crispy fried onion top crust. SO GOOD.
**That staple would be pineapple casserole, a recipe I got from my cousin, that involves pineapple, cheddar cheese, a sweet pineapple sauce, and a top crust of crushed ritz crackers and melted butter. SWOON.
Boyfriend hooking up the free TV we scored off of Craigslist for his house, cat purring in my lap, internet at my fingertips, and a rousing game of Rock Band in my future. Dinner is in my belly and dessert is in the freezer.
