“I think that women just have a primeval instinct to make soup, which they will try to foist on anybody who looks like a likely candidate.” ~ Dylan Moran
It’s been a hard two weeks for me. Meds issues. Doctor issues. Mobility and pain issues. Crushing insomnia. Nausea. And a myriad other bothersome things. Ah, the joys of Lyme disease and all that entails… It’s like my body decided to rifle through the junk drawer and bring out all the remnants of crap I thought I’d dealt with by now.
I’m back to two finger typing again, so that means blogging is back on my agenda!
Thankfully I am home at my farm, and it’s a farm with a freezer full of kindness I had made as gifts for other people. All things my husband has been able to defrost and reheat for me:
Pumpkin Soup (That’s it in the photo above!)
Bone Broth made into easy meals with noodles and vegetables
Lemony Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks with some mashed potato and vegetables from the garden
I’ve also enjoyed a few meals of simple but delicious Soft Boiled Eggs and Toast Soldiers, which Ben has made his own signature dish. (Eat your heart out, Master Chef!)
By the time I’m back on my feet I think I’ll have eaten everything I’d put by, but gee I’m glad took the time to do that cooking. Ben’s a wonderful husband, but let’s just say that cooking’s not his greatest strength! 🙂 We’ve both been grateful for all of those frozen and easy-to-put-together meals.
Maybe there’s a recipe here that you might find useful too – either to make for yourself, or to take to a friend or family member who could use a little extra kindness and support right now.
Lastly I’ve been enjoying a little Warm Spiced Turmeric Milk made fresh each night to help me sleep and to kill more Lyme bugs. I heartily recommend it!
I have missed you all very much, but I’ve held you in my daily prayers and meditations, so we’ve not been that far apart from each other.
I’ll record you a guided meditation today too, as I have a couple to catch up on, so watch out for that on the blog tomorrow. Lots and lots of love, Nicole xx
