My Blue Apron box came!!!! Once again everything looks soooo good!!!
I was really excited but also very hesitant to try catfish, I have never had it before.
I had fun cooking this dish. The fresh fettuccine was amazing!
I was so happy with this dish, it was light and tart. The catfish was sooo good!!! No fishy smell or taste. Next time i would probably add some tomatoes though, i am pasta purest, i think all pasta should have some bit of red in the sauce hahaha.
I even ended up with enough left over for a small lunch, talk about getting your money’s worth!!!!
Halloween is my favorite holiday!!! The candy, the costumes, the candles and ambiance.
Halloween is the day when the veils between the worlds are thinest, today is a day to honor your ancestors, throw a little food and drink into the fire for them because they are near.
There is magic in the air tonight, can you feel it?
What is your favorite part of halloween?
Wooohoo its Friday!!!!!!
I am so stoked that it is Friday, and i only worked 14 hours this week. It is amazing how exhausted I am from just those 14 hours. Surgery really does take it out of you.
After work my mom and i met the boyfriend at a sports bar and had dinner, then we wandered around barnes and noble, aka heaven, and i spent 3.5 hours worth of pay on 6 books lol.
Now it is reading and sleep time. I’ve been sleeping 11-12 hours every night, my body really needs to heal so i can start working out again.
We have a house guest this week that i am complety in love with.
Tomorrow is Halloween!!!!!!
Now it is reading time until the pain meds kick in, then it is sleep time.
So during my surgery recovery I tasked my mother with making the 3rd meal from my first Blue Apron box.
I love how easy they make the prep work.
Mom did most of the work, but I finished it off because she walked away to answer a phone call. I think she did pretty good though.
I added extra cheese though because I LOVE cheese, probably too much hahahahaha.
We finished this weeks box just in time because i new box arrived today!!!!!! Normally I anticipate finishing the box much quicker but surgery and recovery put a damper in this weeks box.
I am super excited for this coming weeks box though, everything looks delicious. Next time look for my first experience with Catfish………
Have you ever tried catfish?
Have you jumped on the Blue Apron bandwagon yet?
What is the last thing you cooked?
Its Wednesday!!!! Like everyone else I am celebrating that we are more than halfway through the weekend……yes I am celebrating even though today was my Monday.
Today was my first day back at work post surgery, i went in for 4 hours…..and my hour 2.5 I wanted to curl up in a ball in the bathroom and pass out.
I took half a pain pill, i have a desk job where i sit on my butt, which is where my stitches are. I brought a pillow to sit on. The first hour went by pretty ok, I had to make sure i focused extra good because of the pain pill, i didn’t want to make any stupid mistakes or miss anything. The second hour was still ok, I had a little bit of nausea but was mostly ok.
Then the heat kicked on because it was raining outside and the pain pill took full effect and about every half hour I was running to the bathroom to throw up. I made it to my 4 hours, tied up loose ends and ran out the door to lay down in the car and let my mom drive home.
I got home, laid down, and took a nap. Thankfully the nausea is starting to subside. Tomorrow and Friday i have 5 hours scheduled, fingers crossed i can make it. Tomorrow i am going to try 1/4 pain pill and see if there is less nausea and it still keeps the pain tolerable.
I would like to say days like today really remind me how awesome my job is and how wonderful my coworkers are. They really work with me and genuinely care about my well being, they do not make me feel like just another number in a time clock.
Do you like your job?
Do you like your coworkers?
How was your day?
Last night i made myself get off the couch and make my 2nd blue apron meal, granted i had mom help me but i still got up and did it.
sorry second one is a little blurry.
Of course the directions were nice and easy to follow.
we prepped everything before hand so it was ready during the cooking process.
When you are done cooking the directions tell you how to plate it, so far both my dishes have looked like the pictures on their directions.
My roommate made chocolate peanut butter cupcakes……yes i had one, maybe 2.
Monday I tried to take only half pain pills and spread them out past the every 6 hours that is prescribed. I have to get used to less since i am supposed to go back to work on Wednesday, I might need to just do a half day on Wednesday because sitting for several hours is painful and i can only sit in certain positions….. we will see how i feel tonight. I will keep you posted.
How is everyones week going?
What did you make for dinner last night?
I am recovering from surgery so there are no workouts for me this week.
What is on your workout schedule?
