Getting back up – dusting myself off …

After last week’s huge mental blow, DH and I are starting to correct the insurance situation.  I’ve reached out to my employer’s HR, but don’t hold much hope for assistance.

In the meantime, I’m cooking like a fiend.  And making cards.  And making desserts.  Apparently keeping busy is helping me …

The Spinach Cream Cheese Mozzarella Chicken is a keeper! (Thank you, Christina!)

I managed to destroy the wontons in this Shrimp Wonton Soup with added mushrooms.  Minus the wonton disaster – DH likes the soup …

And, DH felt the need to cook up an enormous steak.  So, I added some sweet potato fries (love our air fryer!)

baby-cardI finished the baby shower card for my sister, made a few thank you cards, revisited my rose stamp, and cut up one of my alcohol inked papers for a couple ‘Beautiful’ cards.  Then I played with water coloring … Hmm – not great, but it’s learning …. Next up, a few more alcohol inked cards, I think.

My version of Puff Pastry Cinnamon Apples look more like baby rotisserie chickens, but they taste good!  And, tonight we made Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake … They’re still cooling, so – we’ll see.

Meanwhile, our moms and pups are all doing well.  I’ll leave with a quick pic of Georgie’s girls, Yennifer and Penelope … Awww. Smile
