Apologies for my absence of late, but I'm being faced with some new health issues that have kept me preoccupied, AND out of the kitchen... Go figure? Me, not caring about COOKING!!! Also, sorry for not responding to comments on my last blog, but alas,
the "spark" has faded... hopefully only temporarily, as I might just need to focus on the postive facets of my life.
After 4 months of trying to eat a more healthy diet (cholesterol had shot up...) I decided that I must treat myself tonight. I recently bought some top sirloin steak, but have been trying to avoid beef for a while. I pulled out all of the stops, I guess.
A thick piece of sirloin, cooked (a little bit more than I'd wanted,) about med/well - I was shooting for medium or med/rare... Baked potato with butter (yes, real butter!) sour cream, and a tossed salad doused in blue cheese dressing. Despite being a bit
overdone, my teeth loved sinking themselves into that succulent meat, treasuring every bite. I do believe that it had been more than 6 months since I actually sat down to a steak. Into the weekend, it will have to be back to chicken and pork! Thankfully,
I'm enjoying the wok, and have become rather adventurous with the dishes I've been making.
So, short as this has been, I felt the need to stop in and let you know that I've not fallen off the planet, just needing some time to process my recent information overload, though, the lips of the professionals seem sealed tight, offering little to no "opinions."
The wheels of the medical community turn so painfully slow... Forgive me if I'm not quite as "chatty" as I've been for the past year plus, but for now, I'm doing my best not to jump to the "worst case scenario," and stick with "best case."
Be well, friends, and try to be crazy on my behalf, should I go AWOL again, lol!
