Well I suppose ya’ll feel neglected, abandoned, or worse. I can’t say ya’ll are wrong. I’ve left ya’ll far too long. I think about all of you everyday. I can’t give you a good excuse. However, I can tell you where I’ve been. I’ve really been struggling getting back into the swing of things here. Hubby is doing fantastic, so don’t worry. I think, if I’m being honest, I’ve bit off more than I can chew, so to speak.
It started with me going back to school for this semester, despite all we’ve been going through in our personal life. It’s taking up a lot of my time, mostly because it’s SO hard this semester. I feel quiet stupid. Then I helped hubby get back into doing his volunteering with youth. I’ll say, he’s limited in what he can do, but he’s having fun, so I am ok with this…but I worry because his immune system isn’t like ours…BUT he’s the only one in the house who didn’t get the flu- I’ll talk about this next time. I also agreed to go ahead and take a foster child. It was rough getting started, we grew to love him. He’s moved on now, but we think about him all the time! I feel grateful I’m still in contact with the relative. I also am having a wee bit of a medical issue. I’ve said before I have an autoimmune disease. It’s given me the need for medications. I was put on a new one and it’s caused some issues with my liver. I keep thinking seriously? What more can happen to my sweet boys. However, I seen a doctor for it and we’re pretty certain it’s going to go away, so no liver damage. I’m off the medication that caused it and back on the old one; which I loved. I’ve noticed that I’ve been feeling a lot better lately. I’ve been following a diet that a nutritionist gave me. I like it because I can still have all these wonderful things I post. So don’t fret!! I’m working on some recipes to post.
Final words, this is one of my FAVORITE recipes. I can’t even tell you where I got it. I’ve had it probably 14 years. It is SO good.
1/4 cup butter
2 lbs potatoe
3 cups heavy cram
2 garlic cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the potatoes thinly. Melt butter, stir in potatoes, cream, garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley. Bring to a boil for 15 minutes. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Top with cheese. Cook until golden. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
