Slump

Buddha
The green little corner of my yard.

I’m still slumpish.

Even when the heat and humidity let up for a few days I still found myself with no motivation.

As Steven says “my get up and go must have got up and went”.

Here’s what I’ve been spending lots of time doing.

• Reading magazines. Trying to get through a huge stack, clipping out what I love and passing the magazine on. I don't need the clutter.

• Bookmarking lots of recipes and saying “oh I need to make this”.

• Cutting mats out of Moose’s ears.

• Pulling my hair up.

• Trying to follow all the blogs I read. I can’t say that I’ve been keeping up with all of them, but I’m trying.

• Eating popsicles (the cotton candy flavored ones are my faves).

• Plotting out my Christmas craft for this year and buying supplies (don’t hate me cause I’m an early planner).

• Adjusting to the new meds, one perk to one of them…makes my skin super healthy and clear. One not so great perk, monthly blood work to make sure my potassium levels aren’t going up too much.

• Eating lots of cold suppers. I’m getting very creative with salad.

• Picking veggies from my garden. My basil has come back with a vengeance. It’s like 4 feet high and that’s with regular trimmings.

I had hoped to make a few recipes over the weekend but I had a wedding to attend in Connecticut on Saturday and a house to clean on Sunday. Oh yeah, I didn't feel like cleaning much during the heatwave either.

Shall I taunt you with all the delicious foods I will be posting shortly?? Ok then. Here's whats coming up....

Sicilian Steak
Lime in the Coconut Cheesecake bars
Crab Rangoon Eggrolls
Lasagna Cups
Mini Pizza Cups
My delicious herbed mayo
Pizza Black Bean Burgers from my friend Rebecca.
Blueberry Vanilla Cream Cheese Pies
Frozen Strawberry Squares
Pasta e Fagioli Soup


So that's what I have planned and of course that list is subject to change based on whatever other recipe I find that might entices me more, but most of the above mentioned should be appearing shortly. Honest...I will get back in the kitchen!
