We arrived early Friday afternoon to sunny Florida! Dogs were as happy as Bob was! They are on watch already!
Two and one half days of driving gets old...or maybe it's just because we're getting old! Either way, Friday was hitting the ground unloading the car, putting items in rooms (to be put away later), then off to grocery store for me and down to the club house for Bob! After dinner, we unpacked suitcases and space saver bags. Other than the 'sewing/spare room', it looked like we never left! The spare room is another story! Empty suitcases, art supplies, sewing supplies...but I have four months to put away and then pack up again. HA
I felt like I was getting a sore throat Friday night but thought it just sinus...then the hot flashes, chills started in. I only had runny nose and sore throat but no real cough...thank goodness. Got 'drugs' on Saturday and just sat most of the day even though it was in the high 60's!! I sat with a turtle neck and sweater and wrapped in a flannel quilt.
But in between resting, I read instructions for using my InstaPot my Dawn (daughter) and daughter in-law, Kris gave me for Christmas! I am thrilled with it!!! Thank you girls!!!!
That same night I made the girls their brown rice for the turkey meals that I freeze. Wow! It took only 20 minutes and was perfect! Normally, it takes at least 45-50 minutes and even then it may need more cooking time. Well, I couldn't stop there so yesterday (Sunday) I made chicken parm and spaghetti squash! This might not look so appetizing but it was delicious!
Normally, it is so hard for me to cut the squash but with the InstaPot all I did was put 1 cup water in the pan, lay the squash on the trivet, pierce the squash about a dozen times and set the timer for 15 minutes! Quick release and it was perfect as well!!! Another great dinner!!
At least I'm cooking, because I'm sure not doing anything else...just feel wore out and yucky...better each day but now Bob said his tummy isn't so great! Our weather has turned cold, which is a good thing..Bob won't golf for a few days due to cold and rain predicted. I think we both need the rest.
Our weather turned cold last night and as I write this post it's 41 degrees and overcast, which is unusual for us. But weather here is normally cooler in January, which is fine with me. I like this weather for walking the dogs but poor things haven't been for a walk in weeks! With minus degree temps back home and not feeling well we are just couch potatoes! Speaking of potatoes...I'll have to look up some InstaPot recipes for potatoes!
