Well, hello there!

Well, at least it's only been 4-1/2 months since my last post and I have yet to get any food posts up lol.  It seems I wasted a whole year avoiding covid only to get it IN MY OWN HOUSE from my CHILD, AND on the one year anniversary of his last day of in-school instruction!  Oh the irony!  I'm really glad I didnt buy 500 rolls of toilet paper or gallons of bleach or 764 cans of Lysol.  I would REALLY be kicking myself!  
And to top it all off, I didn't even get any of the weird symptoms of Covid. I did get the coughing, fever and loss of appetite and then my mostly healthy - albeit overweight- body decided: "Let's kick it up a notch--Covid Pneumonia sounds AWESOME!"  That awarded me an 8-day hospital stay. Everyone else gets a few weird symptoms, quarantines in their bedroom and is fine in 7-14 days. NOT ME!  I don't even get colds for crying out loud!  Needless to say it was quite scary for me being the only othet time I was in the hospital was to have my child 18-1/2 years ago and that was a breeze compared to this. 
So, it's now 35 days since my first symptoms and I still have a slight cough, get tired easily and still no  appetite for a lot of foods along with not being able to eat much so I'd say I'm 98% and I'll probably be there for a while.   My 18 y/o son recovered in less than 10 days. Lucky stiff! 

While I was in the hospital I decided to once and for all lose this weight.  (Maybe not once and for all, we all know how it usually goes lol). I have no appetite for many foods and those foods are all the ones we arent supposed to eat: heavy, greesy, carb laden foods: all the foods I love, too!  (But I can still
Eat half a bag of chips or cheese doodles--idky!) 
So I don’t know if that's my mind being in a "lose weight" frame of mind or it's from covid.  🤷🏻‍♀️. (Insert shrugging emoji here). 
But I wont look a gift horse in the mouth.  I'll use it to my advantage. I lost 10-12 lbs while I was sick and i've gained 4 back but that's also becauase I'm eating more than I was when sick. (We wont even talk about what the hospital thinks is healthy). 

I'll start with what I had tonight then I'll put a few other posta of things I've made in the past few weeks.  I'll start a new post for tonight's dinner.  
CIAO!! (I'm not Italian, I just like the word lol).
