I told you I'd be back....
With a really easy, super yummy recipe too.
Today we are having a blizzard...
really, I'm serious.
At times we can't see our neighbors homes that are just on the other side of the cul-de-sac we live on.
Gotta love Midwestern weather,
Not really...when it's -30 with the windchill and a total whiteout because of 40 mph winds. Sheesh, makes me wonder why I'm still here sometimes. Then it passes and the beautiful Spring weather arrives and it's a memory for another year.
So...the first dish in 3 weeks that I found myself making was a easy braised pork chop dinner.
A simple, yummy dish with minimal ingredients and I was able to do it virtually with one arm, which in my case at this time is a good thing.
I served it with a simple but flavorful side dish of orzo with spinach and parmensan, that recipe I'll share at a later date-my family eats that like it's a main dish!!
It's been 3 weeks since I my arm broke, a week later I had surgery and they cemented, plated and screwed it back together and I am on the road to recovery.
I have been blessed again with a phenomenal medical support team from the Mayo clinic and with their top notch care and the continued support of the Oncology team, I have been given a fighting chance.
Believe me, if i can pull this together after that, you know anyone can. And, you'll be glad you did!!
