What a life. As I get busier with work, kids and volunteering, I have great difficulties in keeping up with making decent meals. My old standby of ground beef, tomatoes, peppers, onions and spinach is good for mid-week when I have exactly one hour to make supper, review homework and get the kids out to activites. (My husband fixes his own A meal)...
I travelled for 3 days last week (business and pleasure). My mother is a spry 78 year O who does not take any medications except for the occasional rum and coke. We went out for a great dinner at a lovely restaurant, I had steak and green beens and my mother also had a steak but with spinich. I had a wonderful glass of Shirax red wine and of course my mother had her cocktail of choice. It was a wonderful relaxing dinner without having to referee kids or worrying about needing to get home to do some tasks.
I then spent 2 days training a client on design software for the apparel industry. She makes the most incredible evening and bridal wear.
Because of my travels, I ended up fighting a very nasty flu bug that is going around here. It starts with a sick stomach, body aches, chills and then throwing up. I had my nasty turn on Monday night, but with doses of Vit C, beef and tomatoes all seems to be well now.
