Thank you for the update Mike, I will surely be in prayer about her and your health problems. Not being able to breath properly is extremely stressful.

I hope the docs don't list it as Covid19 because of the respiratory and coughing she is experiencing. If I may be of any help just let me know, after all we are just a few hours away.

Sorry to hear about your wife, Mike.I pray that shr will soon be well enough to come of O2

Thanks for the concern. As of this morning, when she was on just room air for about 10 minutes using the restroom, she came back and checked her oxygen and was at about 89%, so getting better slowly. I suspect that even as she gets normal she will be staying on oxygen at night, probably just a low volume, for a while to come, just to keep things strengthened.

Thanks for the latest update Mike. It sounds like some good progress, although small. The encouraging thing is that even though the progress is slow, it is positive progress and each little bit adds up to substantial progress in the long run.

Last night I fixed burgers. Chopped red peppers and onions and mixed them in before frying. Gave it a good flavor!

Tonight I'm making a version of chicken al fredo. For Randy I'll use hearts of palm for the pasta. My sauce is pretty basically heavy cream, garlic, and parmesan, with a little mozzarella mixed in, salt, and pepper. He likes it.

Mike, I hope her oxygen has bumped up into the 90s by now.

Yesterday, I went to the egg machine of a local poultry farm for the first time.  I didn't negociate it too well.  I got me eggs OK but ended up with a steak and ale pie instead of the apple pie I was trying to get.  So I had that today and gave the leftovers to my grandchildren next door.

Squash casserole, zipper cream peas, collard greens with smoked ham hocks, baked sweet taters. All aforementioned veggies are fresh from garden.
 

My wife’s been canning tomatoes, making pickles, chow-chow, hot pepper relish, 3 dozen tamales, on so on. On the “dog box” in the cab of the motorhome are two laundry baskets of yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, bell peppers, jalapeños, sweet Italian peppers, zipper peas, bi-color corn, onions, and honeydew melons.

Cous Cous yesterday and today and English chilli con carne fpr the two days before that.  

I like to have Merguez sausages with cous cous which I used to buy in France where we went shopping about once a month, but we have not neen there since at least Junuary due to lockdown.  We could go in the summer but declined because of the price hike. We used to pay about £27.00 for a day return, but in the summer the cheapest I could fine was £160.00 on the ferry.  I knew that a butcher in my old hometown made his own Merguez but he only does them from time to time, so I called and asked him when he would be doing them and I went and bought a kolo each for my daughter and I and a bit more for my grandson who was staying with us at the time, but lives in. the midlands. He later sent me a whtatsap message saying he had found some up there but they were a lot dearer than mine.

Tomorrow is our church potluck day (we do it every first Sunday). Mom made spaghetti, and white cake/lemon icing for dessert. I made a beef stroghanoff gravy and rice, and a green salad. Others will be bringing different things (I know sloppy joes are coming, too). So tonight I tried out the rice and gravy. Yum!

We are still in lockdown so we have not been able to meet with anyone except my daughter and some of her family who live at the same address.   We have been able to have one service at church and from the 21st march we will be able to have an evening service as well.  That is my birthday.   We will have to spray the chairs between each service.  2 weeks ago my grandaughter and the husband returned from Nice in France and twas hey have to be self isolating in the back annexe, 1t was her 21st birthday last week so my daughter went to thw chippie and got some takeaway chips while her husband cooked some steaks. No restaurants are are to open as yet. Today I did spaghegti bolonaise.

I had a real treat, for me that is. I have not had access to Moose Meat since I lived in Alaska, almost twenty years ago. A friend gave me some Moose and Caribou. 

So, tonight I had Caribou steak cut in strips and dry dredged in pancake flour with spices. Quick fried in an open pan. Also had asparagus spears steamed.

For those who have never had Caribou or Moose, this cooking method and combination is wonderful.

Today we had potluck at church. The church bought fried chicken...and the deli gave us the wrong order. So - they called us and told us our order was still there. They GAVE it to us, so we had an overabundance of chicken. Not only did we feast on it for lunch, we were able to send a bunch home with folks, and deliver some to others. 

We also had ham, au gratin potatoes, pasta salad, potato salad, veggies, and two different cakes for dessert (lemon, and strawberry shortcake).

The best part of the day was the preaching/teaching. On our first Sundays, we have an afternoon service instead of an evening service. It works out nicely since we have the potluck. Our son has been given the honor and responsibility of teaching the afternoon service, so it is even more enjoyable for me.

I am not a Chick-Fil-A fan, never been to one. But that's OK, I would gladly swap going there for where I actually live, which is more distant that Happy Christian. I live in a small community of 80 people.

The nearest Chick-Fil-A to me is 80 miles.        Colin Jost Shrug GIF by Saturday Night Live

I'm doing the Keto, Bro. Mike. Lost sixteen pounds. It is not a strict Keto, just no sugar, which I don't usually use anyway. Extremely low Carbs though. This is a first for me as far as diets go; I don't usually stick to them well. Another first for me is lots of veggies, I have had a life long hatred of veggies. I am finding that cooking my own recipes makes veggies really good. The only thing I really miss is starchy stuff like rice and noodles or pasta. But I am sticking to it.

While on a not-strict version, I pretty quickly lost about 50 pounds, not even really trying, and seem to have plateaued there for now. My wife says she can see it, but no one else seems to-a testament to how big I have been: 50 pounds down brought me to just below 300 pounds, so I'm still a big tub of goo, but we're moving along.

Congrats on the 16 pounds-I don't recall you being a particularly large man by any means, so 16 pounds is a real difference for you.

Wow, I never lived in a town that small before. I live in what is considered a very small town of 20,000 people.

Being surrounded by cities, we have a choice of thousands of restaurants within 10 radius miles to eat. Not good for the belly or budget. I just checked and within 1 radius miles of us we have 5 McDonald's to choose from. UGH....gross

The nearest city to me is Yreka, California, it has a population of 7500. It is an hour away from me; this is where my church is located. When people think of California they think huge populations. They never think that there are places like where I live; but actually there are many small communities in California, especially in the northern and western parts of the state.

I served roast duck breasts in plum sauce for lunch with my grandson, my wife had camembert bakes with raspberry sauce and we all had roast parsnip, carrot, red onion ,  steamed potatoes, green beans and broccoli  my wife and grandson also had mushrooms .

I always season my roast vegetables with salt, black pepper, garlic powder and finely ground herbes de Provence.

For us, tonight it's going to be brats, smothered in onions and green peppers, pork and beans, and if I can get my bride to stop by the Dollar General, maybe some potato chips. We don't actually need the last part. I could just add some mushrooms to the brat pack that's going into the oven, and man, oh man, that would be some good eating! 🙂

Don't know for certain. We have Bible Study right after I get home from work, so I may whip up a sandwich or something simple. My wife will have had leftover Panda Express from last night, eating before I get home. Or I may run to the local quicky mart, the Mark, and grab a piece of pizza or a burrito. My wife can't cook yet, so its just grab as we can when we have to be somewhere.

I know all about having to get a "quick bite to eat" from somewhere other than home. My wife and I will be celebrating out 37th wedding anniversary on May 4th, and I'll be 59 on the 3rd of May. I started learning how to cook when I was four years old. My maternal grandfather made me start with bacon and eggs. From there I went on to learn how to make about everything. I've cooked in restaurants as has my wife, and we both are very good cooks! My wife makes spectacular biscuits and sausage gravy and many other breakfast items, as well as many great things for dinner when she's home to cook. Being on the "disabled" list, I'm the one who cooks around here for the most part. My 1/2 brothers from my mother's second marriage also know how to cook very well. I love to cook. It's a form of therapy for me. I hope your wife learns how to cook, and cook well. Start her out on a Betty Crocker cookbook...the OLD VERSION. It's one of the best we've found. We also use Paula Dean's cookbook at times. Lots of helpful shortcuts and hints. Blessings.
