Last month I planned ahead and stocked the freezer with some easy-to-reheat items for RL to prepare as he assumed butler duties. Fruit with a toasted wedge of sourdough waffle or a microwaved frittata muffin has been a perfect way to launch each day, giving me plenty of energy to attack physical therapy and an ambitious exercise program.

My appetite remains light, often a salad or baked potato is more than filling for a meal, but a quick, reheated cup of soup has been a welcome, warming treat on these cold Autumn days. I do appreciate having a freezer stocked with some of our favorites.

This week I have begun to mess about a bit in the kitchen, roasting a chicken (which took no effort save for teetering around on crutches) and then building a few chicken sandwiches and loaded green salads. Just kitchen puttering, nothing special and no photos, but it took all of my energy for the moment. AmazonFresh has brought groceries to our door, delivering impeccably fresh fruits and vegetables as well as the above-mentioned bird and some basic kitchen staples. I could almost get used to being pampered with delivery service and a live-in butler... almost. But I miss my independence, the action of everyday life, and am SO ready to be mobile again! Tons of online food photos and recipes tempt me daily, so watch out! I'll be On the Move-in the Galley any day now.
