🌞 Good morning 🌞 gentle friends!
Let’s get this day started…
👩🏻🍳 COOKING FOR FRIENDS DAY
I am so excited to be able to share my love of food and cooking. A very dear friend is going through a rough time medically, which lordy knows I understand, so I offered to prep some meals for them so they didn’t have to even think about it. I was going to do a ton of freezer meals but they decided just one meal a week was all they wanted right now.
I gave them a bunch of recipe links and they gave me a list of their top 10 choices to start with. Today I am making this one from @thrivinghome
I would have never thought to use ravioli as a replacement!

👩🏻🍳 COOKING FOR SANDY DAY
3 days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility. We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much 😁 Today is one of her days. I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again. I had taken her a multi day salad on Tuesday she still was working so I just made the pizza. Neither of us had tried it before and we both really liked it!

Today has been a roller coaster of a day with my POTS. The rains got me…my BP bottomed out a few times which makes me stumble around like a drunken flamingo and I can’t think straight but overall, all things considered, it was a beautiful day.

If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight.
