Believing you're a hero.

I made some chicken last night that was so moist and tender that it fell off my fork when I tried to eat it. I found a lid that fit exactly over the frying pan so the chicken simmered in a bit of olive oil and its own juices. I thought, "Yes, this is what it is supposed to taste like." I was most pleased with myself and in the end dropped my knife and fork and picked up the bones with my hands and sucked them clean. It was finger lickin' good. 

It had been a while since I enjoyed a meal so much but now that I make them more interesting, I look forward to cooking every evening and it's done in a flash . I even don't mind peeling the potatoes and I used to think that was such a chore. I have special spices for everything, and although I think they hurt my tender stomach a bit, I do sprinkle them on generously because it's worth it for the taste and the pleasure. 

Just before I was ready to make dinner, I got what I thought was an enormous sugar dip and I quickly drank three glasses of Spa Lemon Cactus which revived me quite a bit. I slowly came to my senses and could sit for a while and feel more normal and not think I was going to pass out. I guess nobody can do completely without some sugar and it is nice to have around for a quick pick me up. I was able to prepare dinner in a normal state of mind and not burn the food in an effort to get it done as fast as possible to still my hunger. 

I didn't like the way my hair looked and sharpened the very dull scissors by cutting up in very small srtips a piece of rough sandpaper. Then I cut my own hair and it turned out well and I look ever so much better now. I look like I can be taken out in public and not embarrass anyone. 

My new mobile phone arrived yesterday and while the battery was loading, I read the downloaded instruction booklet very well. I did make some sort of a mistake because I can't get an internet connnection and I don't know yet how to fix it. As a result, I can't make any phone cals yet. I tried to solve it in a few ways but I have no result yet. I may need to call on a brighter mind than my own. I do handle the touch screen well. You barely have to touch it and that's the whole trick.

I have been eating easy to make soups for lunch  from packages that are done in ten minutes. I eat two bowls full and they do revive me. There are actually real ingredients in this soup and no artificial coloring or preservatives. I couldn't eat the home made soups anymore with the roughly cut vegetables because they sent my intestinal system into an uproar.

I've got to take my medicines and eat breakfast. I also think I've come up with a solution to the internet connection.

You could try blending your home-made soups a bit if you have a blender or food processor, it might make your tummy more happy....
Good luck with the phone, my friend in Ireland got a Galaxy and is just about ready to throw it against the wall....:)

I second Wisewebwoman's suggestion about putting home-made soup through a blender. We do that, and it works very well for us.

Everyday, you are discovering new possibilities. That's wonderful.

Yes, I used to use a blender for home made soups. You get the taste but it is easy to swallow.
Glad you are enjoying the cooking so much.

the chicken sound wonderful

right, so you don't need me to add to the "get a blender" camp, do you?! :)

as for the phone, good luck. I couldn't handle one that need hardly any touching to get it going - I already have enough problems with the little push thingies activating all kinds of things just from sitting in my pocket or purse.
