Thanks, all of you for your well wishes.  I feel fine except for my energy level.  I get tired easily and tend to sleep a lot.  Mentally I'm doing fine, as well.  My "spirits" are good and I'm sure looking forward to a normal life after surgery.  I'm hoping that takes place by the end of this year or sometime in early 2015. 

I really enjoy cooking, so when my energy level is not up to the task, it's frustrating.  At this time I'm also trying to conserve my financial resources since I'm not working, so I'm cooking very basic meals without the extravagance.

As usual, the food photos and descriptions make my mouth water. Your mention of mushrooms, Daniel, reminded me of "harvesting" some wild "shelf" mushrooms when I last played golf a week ago. I had to take a golf club to reach them high up a tree. There are still some out of reach. They were fresh and delicious tasting--those I didn't freeze.

I agree, Carl, gas stoves are better. But I, too, have electric. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Joan and Daniel, those dishes look absolutely fantastic. It would be tough deciding which one to dive into first. Though, I admittedly have a weakness for broccoli - one more reason I didn't vote for George H.W. Bush. 

Carl, take care of yourself, and hope you get to feeling better. My daughter lives up in your neck of the woods (near Univ. of Chicago), and I grew up near Kankakee. So I'm aware the balmy weather has moved south for the rest of the year. Stay warm and healthy.

king, I like your picture with you laying on your ear, but just for the fun of it, I rotated your photo to see how you looked up-and-at-it.

Carl, I am sorry you are not feeling tops right now. What is the status for your health? I hope you don't mind my asking. I just hope you can keep your spirits up as you go through all this. Good luck on finding a place that fits your needs just right.

Joan and Daniel, what wonderful meals made by both of you.  Thanks for sharing your photos.  I'm looking forward to the future when I feel better and have the energy to cook more like I used to.  I also need to move to a place with a better kitchen.  I'm very limited where I am right now.  My current place also has an electric stove/oven.  Gas is so much better.

What are the Swedish (?) deep-fried pastries called?  They're made by dipping a fancy iron into a thick batter, and then frying them in vegetable oil.  They are about 3" in diameter, and die-VOON with fruit or ice cream....or choc sawse.  Or all three.

I have a friend who loves to cook, and is of Swedish descent, but he's been in extreme pain lately, and is not even spending much time on his 'puter.  So I thought I'd send him a box of cookies...just to let him know I'm thinking of him.  Maybe I should send him some Lutefisk....to gross him out, instead,  I'm eville, I am!

Joan, delicious supper!  We roasted potatoes from our garden for supper,  Potatoes, olive oil, rosemary from front yard, Inchelium Red garlic from the veg garden, and some salt and pepper.

This group has a big influence on me. I got out the cast iron skillets again, this was for saute of broccoli, shallots (grew them), mushrooms, garlic, for quiche, todays breakfast
