Well - I'm creeping back out into the real world. Thank you all for your kind comments and emails through this tough time. I guess you could say I'm still in recovery mode. Most of the time I'm "fine" (in a relative sense of the word) but then I hear a song on the radio (Miley Cyrus's the Climb is the WORST) and I completely lose it...baby steps, baby steps (even saying that makes me cringe...maybe I should say itty-bitty steps, itty-bitty steps).
In other news, I have an appointment set up for a phone consultation with the RE on October 1st. I am very much looking forward to this. I already have a plan of action in my head, so I'm really hoping that the doctor agrees with my line of thinking..
And because I really don't have anything else to post about (other than the impending doom that is the first day of school tomorrow), I'll do a MPM for the week...
Monday - Labor Day - burgers on the grill & homemade baked potato chips (modified this recipe)
Tuesday - Haluski (with cabbage) w/ my bloggy buddy Candi's spaetzle
Wednesday - Wing night for G, so leftovers for me
Thursday - Chicken Pot Pie using leftover chicken from the chicken noodle soup I made over the weekend
Friday - Something on the run before G's football game
Chicken Pot Pie recipe (from my friend Ruthie):
Sautee chopped onions, carrots & celery in olive oil. Sprinkle 2-3 Tbsp. flour over veggies and add 1 can of chicken broth (add peas, corn, etc if desired). Bring to a boil until it thickens. Add 2 cups of cooked cubed potatoes and bite-sized pieces of cooked chicken. Pour into pie crust & put the second crust on top (poke holes w/ a fork). Bake @ 350 until crust is golden brown and the inside bubbles up!
