Today has been one of those days that you wish you could just go to sleep and not wake up again. All I did yesterday was walk to the Pharmacy and grocery store. I didn’t carry anything heavy home. The pain levels are almost beyond what I can handle. There is no comfort in sitting, laying down or standing. Walking is another issue.
I did my best to take it all in stride. This morning I decided to make cinnamon rolls as last week I had made bread with a new recipe, I found it to be too sweet to have as a regular bread for sandwiches or such. It would probably be good for french toast. I thought that it might just be good for cinnamon rolls.
So I got my bread started and let it rise and then instead of shaping it for bread or buns I rolled it out, brushed it over with melted butter, sprinkled it with a layer of sugar then a layer of cinnamon and topped it off with raisins. Rolled it up and let it rise again and this is what I got.
After this adventure was complete and the clean up was done I laid down for awhile and watched the Olympics on TV.
I had been planing to make a Greek Quiche from a recipe provided by I Am A Honey Bee’s blog page. After having rested up I went a head and made the mixture for the Quiche. 9 inch pie crusts must be shallower in Canada than in the United States as I got two 9 inch Quiches out of the one recipe. They turned out like this.
I was Happy with this, although I was unsure about using my Convection Oven for it. I researched and found that I had two choices to go with this reduce the cooking time or reduce the temp. I chose to reduce the temp. Still they cooked a little bit more than I would have liked on the outside edges. What to do now with all of this quiche? I plated it up and took one down stairs to the old fellow that resides in the basement apartment and two more plates to take next door to the neighbor lady and her foster child. On each plate I put a slice of quiche and a serving of Greek Salad that I put together. Each got a cinnamon bun for desert. The plates looked like this.
Nothing fancy looking by any way shape or form. I gave them away before I had even tried them myself. Well please to say that it was a really nice meal. I asked my neighbor if she could return the containers (tupperware) when she had finished. Adding that there was no rush to get them back but some day. (I hope that wasn’t rude) Anyhow I have no feedback other than my own taste and I liked it. Thank you I Am A Honey Bee for providing me with this fantastic meal.
Now the day is done I have to find away to rid myself of this back pain. I seem to be on a downward spiral lately. While the option of having the drugs increased is always there, I am too afraid that it will take away my freedoms, my ability to function as a human being. Having been down that road once before I am to afraid. Thus my wishing that I would just go to sleep and not wake up.
Megan from https://www.etsy.com/shop/PeonyCrochet Has gotten going on the hat for Otis. I am very happy. I have placed my order and paid for it and now just to await the arrival in a few days.
On that note I hope everyone has a great evening / night / morning.
