Haven’t had much exciting to post about lately; just going about daily life.
The weekend we ran some errands and got out a bit. Love isn’t allowed to run yet post-op but he is allowed to walk so I made us get out and walk around Saturday. Sunday, he did breakfast with his family but his Mom went to a different brunch and his brother didn’t show up so he basically got up early and drove 45 minutes to have breakfast with his Dad. *snorts*
Yesterday (Monday), I woke up with a stiff/sore neck and my head hurting. Tried Tylenol and caffeine, then a shower, then a nap and eventually took an Imitrex. Still wasn’t until later in the evening that it finally eased up. I’ve been a little spoiled. Ever since my hysterectomy, my migraines have been a lot less frequent and not so bad. I should write an entry about it. Anyway, this one sucked and lasted all day.
But I still managed to make skillet lasagna AND some homemade chocolate chip cookies despite the migraine so go me.
1lb ground beef
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 package lasagna noodles
1/4 cup water
onion powder (or small, diced onion)
Brown beef in large, non-stick skillet. I add onion powder and garlic powder to the beef as it browns. You may want to add a sliced onion instead but I have onion sensitivity issues so I use powder.
Break up 10 regular lasagna noodles into small, 2″ pieces. NOTE: It’s important you use the regular ones, NOT the “no boil” kind. They will cook in the mixture.
Add uncooked noodles, tomatoes, jar of sauce and water to beef in the skillet. Bring to bubble, cover and turn down to simmer.
Simmer covered about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Take off heat. Add in ricotta and mozzarella, stir and recover, letting stand for about five minutes for cheese to get good and melted.
Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.
Yummy and filling this offers about 4 servings or two meals for two.
Today, Love goes back into the surgeon for a check-up. Hopefully, he’ll come off restrictions. Thursday is 4 weeks post-op and the doc said about a month to ensure the stitches hold properly and there’s no risk of re-opening the repair.
And that’s about that. Like I said, just kinda daily life. 🙂
