I didn’t get to be home alone. My housemate decided not to go out. Boo! Hiss!
I have to tell you what he made for dinner tonight because it had me speechless. He put a heap of butter into a frypan then got two crumpets and coated them with butter then fried them and added ham and cheese to the top! Those poor crumpets couldn’t have absorbed another gram of butter if they’d tried.
Meanwhile I was making stock for my chicken soup. I’ve never made stock before. It’s damn fiddly. Well fiddly in the way that I had to keep putting down my book and walking to the kitchen to check on it.
I also made stewed peaches because I got a big bag for $1 at the market. I added some grated nutmeg and cardamon pods. They were damn fine cos I tried some with ice cream. I rock at being a domestic goddess.
Tomorrow I’m making pasta for dinner so I can carb load. I got some spinach gnocchi from the market (I actually asked for pumpkin gnocchi but she took so long serving me, I dealt with it) plus a huge bag of tomatoes for $1 and capsicums for $1 a kg, zucchinis for $1 a kg and other stuff. The market seemed to be incredibly cheap today even for the market. I spent less than $20 and got so much food.
I had my radox bath. It rocked. I got out of my awkwardly shaped bathtub and dried myself before I realised I felt no pain. Woohoo! I have a few twinges now but I think they’ll be right.
Just to solidify my resolve to be all healed by Sunday, I got out my clothes and packed my race number and stuff into my bag. I’m ready to go. I even made a special playlist for my ipod 🙂 All I need do now is rest and eat carbs! To paraphrase Ralph Wiggum – that’s where I’m a viking!
