So I have bee super sick since early last week. I have not gone to work since Friday. I finally got around to going to the doctor yesterday because I did not start to feel better over the weekend as I predicted I would. It turns out I have LUNG infection. Yikes!! The doctor sent me home with THREE prescriptions! One of the medications required me to take a double dose, which I did so last night. WOW, that s**t knocked me out! I was so out of it this morning I could not sit up without wanting to puke. If I am sick I can usually work from home, but this stuff made it so I didn't want to be alive.
Luckily, the remainder of that specific antibiotic is to be used as a single dose daily. WHEW!
AnyWHO, this is my legitimate excuse for not posting as much as I'd like lately. I am going to try to make up for it tonight with a ton of material...
Like the above Lobster Ravioli I picked up at Costco. I added a bunch of veggies because I cannot eat JUST pasta by itself. Too much starch on its own makes me feel DIRTY. ha!
I attempted my version of a spaghetti bake - I altered some of the veggies from the broccoli version I saw on Apartment Therapy. I added cream to my egg mixture, but apparently not enough SALT. It was still pretty good. The mini red peppers (costco pack!) were SO awesome, since I sauteed the veggies before baking. The result: they tasted ROASTED, and who doesn't like roasted red peppers?!
And of course, I was inspired to make this super simple carrot-broccoli-cabbage stir fry. This was the day I went to the doctor, also the day our neighbor Roger was over prepping our kitchen for the new backsplash (more on that later!)...
As a result, I needed something QUICK. I seasoned started with olive + sesame oils. I added the carrots, then broccoli, and last the cabbage. I believe I only used garlic powder, salt, and a few red pepper flakes. It was great. The rice on the side is the TRUROOTS brand sprouted quinoa and wild rice mix (also picked up at Costco ;).
AHHHH. YUM. Even the husband ate it!
