This and That

What She Wore: printed t-shirt that I was supposed to wear on Friday, but changed my mind at the last minute and didn’t; blue jeans, those trusty gray and black herringbone mary janes. I need to go hunt up some spring shoes now that Easter has passed.

What She Ate: Half a ham and bacon sandwich, sauted potatoes, and a Caesar salad. I don’t know what I’m having for dinner. . . whatever they have available at the concert.

I really love my son’s therapists and I know that it is very important for him to see them on a regular basis. For this reason, it takes something incredibly major for us to miss therapy. I’ve actually only cancelled one therapist one time and that was because Charlie had the weakened immune system and this particular therapist brought lots of items that were handled by a many children. I just thought it was too risky.

So, today when my BIL and SIL who were visiting from Florida called to say they wanted to have lunch, I was very disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to go. They, my husband, and my MIL were all going to go to this cute little cafe that specializes in breakfast, but also has some great lunch food.

Charlie had a dual therapy session planned: his OT and PT were going to come jointly and asses and discuss equipment, braces, splints and the like. It was going to be a pretty big deal and like I said before I NEVER cancel therapy.

Well, I may not cancel, but the therapists do sometimes.

Today, I got lucky. One had a sick kid and the other had a meeting she didn’t know about. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them just didn’t feel like working the day after Easter, but that’s OK with me–I got to go to lunch.

Yum. Yum. Yum, and my BIL picked up the tab. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Tonight, I’m going to a roots music concert. My husband is all about this type of music, so I’m going to put on my happy face and pretend that I’m not completely exausted from the weekend. I’ll have a good time–I’m just tired.

    Yay for going to a lunch out!

    I just thought I’d give you the actual recipe for those carrots (this is from memory so bear with me)

    4 c. sliced carrots
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 tbsp. butter
    1/2 c. shredded cheese
    3 scant cups stuffing mix (I use Kellogg’s)
    1/2 c. melted butter

    Cook carrots in salted water until tender. Meanwhile, saute onion in butter. Combine carrots, onion, soup and cheese in casserole dish. Toss stuffing mix in butter and spread over the top of the carrot mixture. Bake at 350 for 30 min. or until stuffing mix is brown.

    I think that’s pretty much it. I sometimes use less onion depending on how oniony you like things. I don’t really like onion that much so I used half an onion.

  7. You know, Jenn, going out to eat is just what people do in New Orleans. Long lunches, fancy dinners, pizza in dives–it’s a way of life. Sometimes my brother call me to talk about what he ate and that’s it. It’s that kind of town.

  8. Sweet! Love when stuff like that works out.

    Hope Charlie is practicing his puff eating because lots o’ good sounding New Orleans food awaits his palate!

  9. What is roots music? And also, I saw some pastel yellow flats the other day at TJMaxx that Cheyenne and I went nuts for.

    As usual, all I am fixating on is the food talk. I think I need to visit New Orleans; sounds like my kind of place!

  11. Roots music is anything that is American in its roots. It is the groundwork of what later became rock and roll: blues, bluegrass, cajun, zydeco, jazz, and some Latin music. It’s interesting and they definitely put on a good show.
