The Ladies Who Lunch are going out today. They plan to visit The Old Spaghetti Factory which is downtown (about 20 miles from me). I really like that restaurant and had planned to go with them. But I’m wimping out. I’ve had a miserable pain-filled night and just don’t think I’m up to a day out having “fun.”
My legs continue to give me problems. I saw my doctor yesterday and she thinks it’s time to consult an orthopedist. So I left her office equipped with a referral to one. I’m a little scared about it. I don’t want to be told I need knee replacement surgery. She didn’t mention anything so drastic. Her suggestion was some shots of some kind. So, come Monday, I’ll call and see if I can get an appointment.
What am I going to do since I’m not out having fun? I’m thinking maybe I should consider doing the laundry. That should be entertaining.
I’ve thought of another one of Mom’s recipes. It’s for a summer salad. I’d almost call this a quick pickle. At any rate, she’d slice up some tomatoes, cucumber, and onions. A splash of vinegar (cider vinegar) in a glass mixed with water, salt and pepper was poured over the vegetables. This was stirred and left to sit for a few hours. Yummy! Sometimes if she had it a green pepper would be added. Quantities of the vegetables depended on what she had but the goal was sort of equal amounts of each.
