Well, what I've found over the past week is that even while NOT taking pain pills, cooking from a wheelchair or on crutches is not the easiest endeavor. Thankfully, I have the world's BEST friends. They've come to feed, come to help, come to drive - the works. We've feasted on lasagnas, soups, fried rice, tacos, feta-stuffed chicken, salads...you name it! It's been delightful and helpful and wonderful. I suggest if you ever get injured, that you hire my friends.
I'm hoping that as I progress in time in the cast with the crutches that I will start to adapt and be able to cook a little bit at the very least. I'm already missing the time in the kitchen with the weeone as well her response to food she's cooked.
So for now I'll read my cookbooks and make fantasy menus and enjoy the fabulousness that is my circle of friends and allow my body to heal.
That's a happy feeling.
