I've Been Doing Some Cooking Lately

Tonight it was Shrimp and Pork Won Ton Soup. With carrot shavings and broccoli as the veggies. Delicious. MIght have spoiled me for take out though. It was one of the more ambitious meals I've taken on.

The broth ran a bit low at the end so I had pot stickers instead. Still ate the vegetables (with what was left of the broth) as well. Was all good. A bit too heavy on the garlic and pepper flakes though. Kinda gave me heartburn.

So labor intensive. I was on my feet for quite a while preping and cooking. My legs and feet feel like they are burning up. Feet swelled up a bit. I've had ongoing circulation problems in my lower legs and feet for a few years now. Got water pills for it, but I'm wondering if they aren't just a stopgap. Still taking them of course.

I am Whipped boys and girls. Managed to get most of the kitchen cleaned up. Dishes into the dishwasher (it's running) and pots and pans and utensils washed. Had to make myself get up off the couch and go do 'em. If for no other reason, so I could make coffee in the AM. *grins*

Cooking has been an adventure kind of a deal for me. Trying to see the joy in it, but it isn't easy. I do like it when the finished product comes out the way it is supposed to. And I usually make enough for two meals. Easier to cook that way. Theleftover factor has been pretty cool too.

I'm beat...
