While E is recuperating from a surgical procedure (hopefully the last of a series for a while), and somewhat zombified from pain and not very effective painkillers, I am busily cooking. I made turkey BBQ, carrot-apple-sultana salad with cumin, cilantro, and fresh chives, and Mexican-spiced brown rice with corn, peppers, onions, and fresh parsley. Outside my plants are seriously thinking about coming up, now that spring has sprung. Inside, tomato plants are trying to jump off the sills to their deaths, if I don’t get them in the garden soon! No complaints here.
