As I mentioned in a previous post, I wanted to avoid having surgery. Well, it didn't work out that way. My foot was so damaged that no amount of healthy eating would have healed it. Fortunately, I was able to enjoy summer and wait until last Friday to have the surgery done.
Now I am home recovering and must keep off of my foot for the next 4 weeks. I just received a text from a dear friend wondering if I am bored yet. Nope....not yet. I love to read and this has been a fabulous excuse to do nothing but lay around and read. I have also had great friends visit. Best of all, my wonderful hubby is here taking care of me and keeping me company.
One thing my husband was worried about was what to cook for our meals. Maybe I should emphasize WORRIED, because he was actually freaked out about it. The first few days we had lasagna. I truly mean for the first few days. My friend Savannah made us a few lasagna's to put in the freezer. And my husband did put them in the freezer. Then pulled them out of the freezer. Every day for three days it was a running joke because I would text Savannah and say "Guess what we are having for dinner?" "Guess what we are having for lunch?" Thank the Lord for her wonderful lasagna. It allowed us time to get into a routine and gave Ed time to work up his cooking courage.
Today, I am so proud of him. He actually found a recipe on my blog for Avocado, Cheese, and Egg Stacks and made them for lunch. He did AMAZING. See the picture:) They were delicious and beautiful. Great job honey!
His confidence is built and I can't wait for dinner. He is making Spaghetti Salad and Grilled Salmon. I am so thankful for such an amazing husband. God has truly blessed me with him. All in all, I think this will be a great month recovering. Reading, visits from friends, and great food. Not so bad for a surgery that I dreaded all year :)
