I was deprived of bowling today, boo hoo. I seem to have a bit of a bad knee plus I had very little sleep last night as, for some reason, I kept getting leg cramps and having to get up and drink some tonic, the quinine usually helps although it wasn't doing a lot for me last night. I got so sick of tonic water I almost wanted to throw up. So for something easy we are having what I call Leftover Chicken and Ham although it originally started with Turkey and was a recipe by Paul Hollywood of Great British Bakeshow fame. As I have said, I buy a rotisserie chicken and make this dish, without the pastry that Paul did. It really is delicious and freezes really well. I think I will have to be making more soon.
I heard from the Cannabis lab who said I could fax them the doctor's referral so I did. My friend said it took 2 weeks to even hear from her lab so I guess I am lucky. You then, apparently, have to complete a very extensive questionnaire which they use to take into consideration as to whether you should be allowed the Marijuana.
Matt just did 6 laps along the corridor outside our apartment so things are looking up. He still will not do the exercises without prompting. I call it prompting, he probably thinks of it as nagging LOL.
Although I am not working any more, I am always looking for different breakfasts and for those of you who do eat breakfast I am sure these will appeal. I like the idea of doing them beforehand as I often find myself thinking about what to cook myself in the mornings.
Microwave Breakfast Sandwiches
You’re running out the door, slightly late for work, with a thermos dripping with coffee and a half-unwrapped granola bar in your mouth. If this sounds like just another day in the life, you need these make-ahead egg sandwiches in your life. Take less than an hour one night or weekend to make a batch (or 5) and be prepared with a real breakfast for days.
Crack a whole carton of eggs into a bowl and beat them with salt, pepper, and a splash of milk if you
like. If you have some on hand, toss in chopped parsley or chives. Pour the eggs into a well-greased baking dish or muffin tin and bake them until just firm. Meanwhile, cook a mess of bacon, sausage or ham and set the meat aside. When the eggs are cooked, lay them onto a toast a bunch of English muffin with slice of cheese and a couple pieces of the cooked meat. Stack the sandwiches a container, then tuck them into the freezer. When you’re ready to eat, pull out a sandwich, wrap it in a damp paper towel, then tightly in parchment paper, and pop it in the microwave. In just about 2 minutes you’ll be out the door, sandwich in hand.
