Ow! and Shabbos Update
I'm tired of pain, honestly. I have a splitting migraine, a toothache, and now I think I either have a kidney stone or a kidney infection (neither of which would surprise me, since I'm about due for one). I'm limited in what I can take for the pain (which is fine, because I'm limited in what I have in the house for pain anyway), so I'm kinda stuck. I've got a 3:45 appointment with my doctor to see if it's a kidney infection, which I think is the more likely option.

Given the amount of pain I'm in.... well, we're going to have a relatively simple dinner tonight. Our guests include:

Dinner will be:
First Course:
  • Arugula salad with strawberries and avocado with a honey/balsamic vinaigrette. Yes, I did this last week, and yes I'm doing it again. I like it. So there. Oh, I have to remember to buy green onions. Phooey. And I thought I was done shopping!
  • Salmon cakes IF I finish making them today. The doctor's appointment may crimp my ability to do that.

Main Course:
  • Roasted Potatoes
  • Corned Beef
  • Tomato Salad
  • Broccoli Kugel
  • Chicken (not sure what kind yet)
  • Roasted Cauliflower

Dessert:
  • Sorbet
  • Fruit
  • Probably nothing else

I feel like I'm copping out a little, but looking at the list, it looks okay, right? I hope there's enough food. I don't think anyone typically leaves my house hungry, so I'm not too worried, just a little.

If I remember correctly, we are going to the Felds for lunch, though that may be a figment of my imagination.

As for the rest of the weekend... I'm hoping to accomplish absolutely nothing on Sunday. I'm also hoping my doctor fixes my pain today.

I can't even remember what I cooked that night. I think ribs, but I might be wrong. Must peruse LJ archives with copious spare time.

I'm a big fan of pain being alleviated. Hence, I take a lot ov Aleve. And codeine. And skelaxin. And...

Wow, and I was proud of myself that I just took challah out of the freezer to defrost for tonight.

Feel better, and enjoy your Sunday nothingness. :)

If it makes you feel better, I'm not making challah myself this week. Too tired.

Well, I wouldn't really call this "making" challah... it's more like "unwrap challah from grocery store and let defrost".

That's a simple dinner? It looks quite bountiful to me. And yeah, anyone who leaves your house hungry has to be making a major effort to do so...

It was simple in that none of the dishes were complex. It was a very easy dinner to throw together.
