Good news: no broken ribs
Good news: one Vicodin prescription
Bad news: not really sure what's wrong and I have to seriously rest my chest for at least 2 weeks.... no heavy breathing. no stretching. no yoga. no physical activity.
But I CAN cook.... And I did, oh yes, I did.....
One Irish Beef Stew.
I followed the recipe almost exactly except I added a bag of tiny peas. I haven't eaten much of it yet but what I have tried so far is quite tasty. I want to make some garlic, cheesy mash potatoes to serve it with.
I got to use my big ole pot!
One Loaf (flower shaped) Soda bread. (Thanks Austin Agrodolce)
This bread is dangerously good! I also broke in my new cast iron skillet with it.
I had a guest show up in mid-bake so I forgot to check on it... It probably could have been baked a few minutes less but it is still moy excellente.
I think I should have made my ball of dough flatter and maybe not cut in so deeply... I'm not sure why it flowered out, but I can tell ya it didn't affect the taste one bit. My pal Evelyn and I have already made quite a large dent in it.
Now I have one happy stomach and amazing smelling apartment.
Evelyn invited me to a movie night and I'm hoping to share my foods with her friends, seeing as I have WAAAAY too much for one person.
Happy green beer drinking day!!
Squint..... There ARE green dot/freckles on our shoulders. :)
I realized I have not been wearing green all day. Does a green freckle tattoo count?
(Marcie and I got "friendship" freckles over the Christmas break)
