(Wow, I've written several entries about poultry...)
Alright y'all...I made another batch of matzo ball soup yesterday (without the matzo balls, at my husbands approval...thanks honey) ALL BY MYSELF! I handled that damn chicken like a boss!! I was elbows deep in that sucker getting it good and rinsed out, and then ripped it to shreds at the end. And FYI: there WERE little bones floating all in the soup, as I had feared. Itty bitty little rib bones...so many of them...yuck! I think the most disgusting part about picking the chicken out of the soup was the cartilage areas and the spine. I don't know why, but they were disgusting.
Dave had quite a remarkable weekend! On Saturday he came downstairs for several hours and even went outside for a little while my dad was putting up the Christmas lights. He had a voracious appetite most of the weekend and ended up eating things such as pizza and turkey sandwiches along with the rest of the chicken soup and the soup my friend Michelle had brought him last time. He's drinking a TON of fluids (3/4 water + 1/4 gatorade) and hasn't really been too nauseous. He spent all day downstairs with me yesterday and was in very good spirits. He did notice that the bone pain from his shot was quite a bit more noticeable this time...he said it feels like a really bad case of the flu or like he spent all day working out. He's at home today and I suspect that he'll have a pretty good day.
All in all....a pretty great weekend!
And today....on December 1, it's supposed to be 72°. Go home December, you're drunk!
