I am a British born, living in Canada. Moved to the countryside in 2009 to a 1909 stone farmhouse. In 2014 we are going to embark on a new adventure with our home ownership.

Life is never ever dull around here and I always have a tale to tell!!

All set.........well sort of...

Today is the big day I am getting my left hand operated on today.  It shouldn't be as bad this one, as it is my left hand this time and I am right handed.

Anyhow, I have been busy putting together meals that are just to heat through, as dh doesn't cook.  I have the following in either the fridge or the freezer:

Lentil Stew

Sausage and Baked Bean casserole
Sausage, Broccoli and Pasta, all I need to add to that is some Alfredo sauce
Cauliflower with Cheese sauce, will make garlic bread with that
Ham Bone Soup
Egg Pie
Stew in the crockpot - I think there will be three meals of that as I do a crockpot full.
Turkey Casserole
Pasta sauce with minced beef - two meals of that.

So that looks like 12 days of supper there.  By then I will have limited use of my left hand as well as my right hand.

Still have cleaning to do this morning and a few other bits and bobs, but at least I won't have to worry about what we will be eating.

Yuck, hand surgery. I have had lots of foot surgery but so far have avoided the hands. Sorry, I hope it goes well. Carpel tunnel or what?
