On the Move... nope, not so much lately.

It has been a while since I've been active in the kitchen, and I have missed the action. Well, that's about to change as I become more mobile, ready to challenge the 17-step vertical journey between bedroom and kitchen more often and still have enough energy left to slice and dice, stir and toss, etc. Soon!

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. 

Sourdough Waffles

Mini Muffin Frittatas

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. 

Beet & Beef Borscht

Tuscan White Bean Soup

Posole with Chicken

Pork Chili with Waffles

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.


  1. Nice to see you back in the kitchen! Continue to heal. Can't wait to see you back online.

    1. Thanks, Camilla. While I'm healing I'll enjoy browsing your archives for interesting stories and some cooking inspiration.

  2. After reading that blog post, you need some chocolate, I will bring over some very soon. Laci.

    1. I'd love your company... and would never turn down good chocolate, Laci. Sorry I'll miss the party.

  3. Hope you get more and more mobile daily.

    1. Thanks, Debra. I'm working hard on PT & making great progress.
