Rest the Ankle... MY FOOT!

Ok, I admit that the other day when I went kitchen nuts, my foot did blow up like a balloon... but I'd been "on it" all afternoon! (One of those "I MUST cook days.") Despite elevating it with ice most of the evening, didn't do squat... but then it didn't
take mere "moments" to puff it up. That was Monday, so yesterday and today I pampered it a little more than I had. This morning when I got up, it seemed almost "free" of swelling, and was only tender where the top is still kinda red... Perhaps a bruise
will still manifest, buy seems after a full week that it would have already, if it was going to...
So, today finally, life was somewhat back to normal... well as "normal" as things can be around here on the best of days! I finally left the house to run a few errands... but easily talked myself into settling for the prices of my "fav" convenience store,
rather than chase all over in 108 degrees to fill the gas tank, buy cat food, and figure a way to 'lay in' some milk until I get to the grocery...
Once the "must do's" were finished, I cooled off, and rummaged the l/o situation in the frige... Raw burger that needed cooking (at least,) and a few other odds/ends. I settled on making cabbage rolls which I'd been craving for a month or so... I had rice
made already, steamed some leaves off a head of cabbage, used the "old" meat, and added 1/2 can of vegetable juice to the tomato sauce to use the juice up too! It made 4 rolls, which is perfect for a meal for 2! Now we have a l/o lunch any day, or even another
dinner. Also this eveining, I nuked some l/o mashed taters, more to make the plate look like a meal, than a snack, but did remove yet another container from the frige!
Since, while I've been settling down for an evening of "couch potato," the sweet tooth has been screaming at me... I'm sure you know the feeling! That "niggly" little voice in your left ear... At this point, a jar of good jam might just hit the spot! I
guess I'll have to stifle that craving for now...
I did notice a while ago, that the foot was once again slightly swollen... I still had my "stool" right at hand, and have kept my foot on it as much as possible since. Of course, a good night's sleep will assist even more in that dept.
So, it would appear that crazycook is back up and running (almost) normally, and simply brimming with topics to share... I would suspect that this week, I may simply be forced to leave multiple posts daily... so should you be interested... guess you'll have
to keep an eye on "me..."
Till next time... be healthy (keep that foot elevated!) be happy, be (just a bit) crazy!
