It only took seventy-two hours but I was back in the kitchen last night!  Oh joy!

I had a pound of ground pork I had picked up a while ago with the notion that I’d make egg rolls or something… I decided it would make a better pasta sauce.

And it was the most basic of sauces…  chopped onion, garlic, red wine, diced mushrooms, tomato sauce, and Italian seasoning.  Nothing fancy…  just good, basic food.  Cooked up some pasta, shaved sone pecorino romano on top, and called it dinner!  It was a really thick ragu.

It was good getting back into the kitchen.  I love having Victor cook, but I feel guilty sitting around and having him do all the work.  Sharing the chores is the way to go.

I’m still far from healed – the knee is still stiff and swollen and I’m not quite ready to hit the disco floor – but every day brings it a bit closer.  I have my follow-up appointment the day after tomorrow and physical therapy after that.  (And that fun Urology exam on Friday.  Oh joy!)

But back to dinner…

There was lots of leftover ragu, so today we had sloppy joe’s for lunch.

I think I’m going to miss this being home stuff…..
