Medical Procedure Day, So I Just Made Soup..
I had to be at a clinic at 7:45AM this morning, to have an endoscopy (Tube with camera, and cauterizing capabilites!) down throat and a little more.. You can't eat or drink anything for about 6-8 hrs. prior, so last night I ate supper a little later (no wife home- fried egg and cheese sandwich!). Today at the docs' could have gone smoother, as the knock-out drugs didn't knock me out. This made it tougher on me and them! Anyway, after that we went out for lunch- one of those places that serve breakfast all day. I ordered a version of eggs Benedict I had never seen- all normal ingredients, but a choice between ham or sausage patty! This with made with a thick sausage patty is excellent! Anyway, the rest of the day was laying around in recovery mode. After someone shoves a big tube down your throat, you need a little down time. Ladies... Don't even go there today... I can hear your thoughts from here..
I did find enough energy to make soup. One of my "Let's see what's in the house" creations. Had some celery, carrots, onion, mushrooms, some sliced beef, barley, and some beef broth- I could make a decent vegetable beef barley soup in less than an hour! Touched up with black pepper, celery seeds, tomato paste, and Mrs' Dash- the flavor of the broth was darn good! I had today off, and will be off thru Labor Day, so posts will be sporadic for a bit. Plan to take pictures of what we do and see, so stay tuned...
