To sum up: it sucks. The cut is fairly well healed, but it lies right where the yarn goes across my finger. Also, if I work my finger in a knitting-type motion, it aches and then swells up and aches some more for several hours, and a bruise appears on the side of the nearest knuckle. I don’t know what that means, except that I can’t knit yet.
One way I’ve been spending the time when I would usually knit is to cook stuff. So far I’ve cooked delicious pork chops and delicious stuffed squash. Tonight I’m going to try a swiss chard casserole thing. Later this week: homemade pot pies.
Ran out of canned cat food. Wrote “canned cat food” on grocery list. Stared at entry thoughtfully for several minutes, then scratched it out.
Note: This is intended as supplemental food only. Real cat food has important vitamins like taurine and stuff.
1 boneless chicken thigh
1 c water
Splash of fish sauce for flava (optional)
Handful of kibble (as needed)
Simmer chicken thigh in water on stovetop for about an hour, or until the thigh can be mushed up with a fork. (Or forget about it for an undetermined length of time, until you suddenly wonder what that weird “boiling meat” smell is.) Crack egg into pan, and simmer for several more minutes until egg is cooked. Add fish sauce. Toss in kibble as needed to soak up extra liquid.
Smirk at having just created a nutritious meal for half (half!) the cost of commercial canned cat food. Rejoice at saving up to two dollars per week. Put phrase “crazy cat lady” out of mind. Store uneaten moosh in refrigerator.
