Health update with a side of food


Tags: , ,
My cold is getting better. I've still got a stuffy nose, but no more cough or general feeling like my body has been run over by a truck.

My dad went to the hospital this morning. The tests they did revealed some things the general external exams hadn't revealed (I'm fuzzy on the details) so they went ahead and did surgery. When I last spoke with Mom, Dad was still unconscious in recovery and the doctor had told Mom that Dad should be perfectly fine and the surgery was completely successful.

I tried a new stew recipe yesterday. It is basically pork, sweet potatoes, apples, and a little bit of onion in apple juice. It is sweet and yummy, though maybe just a bit too sweet. Probably because it was supposed to have more onion in it than I put in it and parsnips. But I don't really like onion or parsnips. I may put in the full amount of onion next time though to see if that makes it a little less sweet. It is really yummy, though.

Good to hear things went well with your Dad's operation, I hope he has a speedy recovering.

I don't like onions much either and would probably have left them out the recipe, too, but I wonder if it might be worth trying leeks instead, since they're similar but much more subtle.

Thanks.

I'd never thought about something like leeks. Maybe next time.

I'm so glad to hear that your dad's surgery went well. Hopefully he's able to recover quickly.

That stew does sound really good. Of course, you know how much onion I would put in it if I made it:)
