Feeling down

I keep on feeling down....I don't know what to do to snap out of it.... Been very sad lately. Spent most of the day laying down alone with my own thoughts.

Only time I managed to get out of the house was a trip to the grocery store so I could cook meal boxes for T. Today he requested chicken and vegetables so I made oven roasted root crops, chicken and a salad. I roasted potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes and parsnips with olive oil, salt and garlic. The chicken came out a little too spicy but the salad was great. I feel like Martha Stewart here using lettuce and herbs from our own garden bed! Love going out there getting what I need for our cooking! And oh, I almost forgot. The best of all is my parmesan and garlic sauce! I make it with fat free sour cream, granulated parmesan cheese, freshly squeezed lemon juice, pressed garlic, salt and pepper. It is sooo good!!!!

Tomorrow we are going to use our grill for the first time. I am planning to grill lots of vegetables, pineapple and chicken skewers! We will also make home made soft serve ice-cream. Hopefully I feel a little bit more upbeat tomorrow and if I do I will make a video.

My stomach hurts a lot, it is my IBS running wild and no matter what I do it doesn't seem to help. Just a bit of depressing phase right now but I am praying I will be through it soon. The loneliness has really gotten to me. I miss my family a lot and I am very homesick.... I also miss having a really close Swedish girlfriend here in NYC...

I am going to tuck myself in bed now, want to fall asleep early because my plan is to get up around 8 am tomorrow!



It's from the pandemic, it's depressing not knowing when/if it'll end. Cooking is a good relief and diversion, your food looks delicious. I've been eating a lot of our fresh chives on most things, they'd be good in that garlic sauce. The thing that makes me the happiest though is all the rhubarb desserts, I really love them in early summer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmvvjpEt53k
