Hanging out with Colton on Saturday – we played Fruit Ninja on the Wii (the kids love this game, by the way!) and then he helped me make spaghetti.
So much fun!
Unfortunately, Carlos got an infection on Sunday so my Sunday was not spent in the kitchen. He is on the road to recovery now and that’s all that matters. He did struggle a bit on Monday morning keeping things down – I decided to make him a homemade electrolyte drink instead of store-bought which is loaded with sugars. My sister sent me this link with some ideas. I didn’t have honey at home so used all-natural syrup instead.
I used the juice of 2 lemons + 2 oranges, about 4.5 cups of water, some salt and some syrup to tame the lemon tartness off.
It turned out great and he kept it down. It was so easy to make and Carlos said the taste was pretty good. By Monday afternoon, he was feeling much much better and had already eaten eggs & bacon (bacon… of course, it’s Carlos) plus some soup.
I’m so thankful for the health and well-being of everyone in my life. And, for how quickly our bodies are able to bounce back when we do become ill.
Tonight, I’m making Chicken Broccoli Pie for dinner and am so excited – it looks so good! I’m hoping the flavors are fairly low-key for Carlos but if not, I roasted a chicken this afternoon while I worked from home so he can nibble on that. My calves are killing me from a workout I did at home yesterday so I will need to make sure I do a bit of stretching tonight before bed. Other then that, and a little studying for my SPHR test I’m taking NEXT WEEK, I’m planning a super low-key Monday night.
