Just a dippy dinner

Neither Charles or I were very hungry or energetic.  So we just made a couple dips for chips and pretzels.

Deviled ham and French onion dip.  I had potato chips Charles had blue corn chips.

Nibble, nibble here.  Nibble nibble there.  Yummster!

Deviled ham

1 pound smoked ham, FINELY minced (I use my food processor)
1/2 cup mayo 
1 tsp cracked red pepper
2 tsp black pepper

Combine well. Pour in a serving bowl.  Chill.  Serve

Left over pizza?

The best thing about pizza night is pizza morning.

Breakfast in bed.  Cold pepperoni mushroom pizza, garlic cheese bread and Italian dressing for dipping.  Yummster!

Old time school lunch

Todays lunch is a throw back to my years in elementary school. We often had bologna and cheese toast.  Oscar Mayer, American cheese slices on white toast.  Yummster.

These days it's home made buttermilk/honey white bread, fried turkey bologna with sharp white cheddar.  Grilled.!

Love this!  Diet coke tops it all off.

More chops

Charles wanted to work on his bbq chops again.  Well I guess I can taste test again.  AGAIN. 

He got his sauce and rub just the way he wanted them.  I love them!  So so good.  Moist and tender with a rich flavor.  Pork loin can be sooooo dry and tough.  These are not.  Then again the brothers never are.

I am so full!  I'll have to wait for my ice cream for a while!  It's so Worth it! ��

Chops and salad

This is my first real meal since last Sunday.  Charles BBQed pork loin chops.  I made a chopped salad. So good!

After being sick all week I got up hungry this morning.  So Charles grilled dinner

Sorry! It was almost gone when I snapped this.

Rice pot

After several days of tummy trouble I am very careful what I eat.  The doctor always recomends the brats diet. Bananas, rice, apple sauce, tea or soup.

Plain rice is my go to at the start.  When it moves on I add some diced veg to increase the healthiness.

Rice pot

1 cup basmati rice 
2 cups chicken broth
1 diced tomato
1 diced bell pepper
1 sweet onion

Cook per package directions.  

Eat small amounts until tummy is ready for meals again.

Hand and foot

The last few days I Have been sick and in bed.  Charles has been waiting on me hand and foot. Thanks so much!

I hate being unable to look after myself and my family but Charles always steps up.  Still in bed today.  He came home to bring me lunch and walk the dogs on his lunch hour.  Sweet dude.

The girlies didn't see me for a couple days. I had to close down for a while.  Man alive! When I opened my room door again Lady ran right in but Trixie is still not talking to me!

Trixie knew i was very sick.  So when I had to kick them out Charles had to pick her up and carry her out of the room.  Guess our nurse isn't happy about being relieved of her duties

Not a happy camper!
