Tell Rog I feel for him, and know what it is like to have to favor that foot. The more he can keep it up, the faster it will heal. When I had bunion surgery it was a month before I was legally able to drive. I did some short trips - it was about 1 mile to the post office, the grocery store, and the bank. I had a sandal that was loose enough to put on over the bandages when I drove instead of the surgical boot. There are medications that deal with the swelling that really can help.

Second load of laundry is in. I roasted a chicken tonight, but it was going to take so long that I pulled a boneless chicken breast out of the freezer and sauteed it. There was a small pizza crust in the freezer and between the two and some basil and cheese, I had a nice non-diet personal pizza dinner. Not too bad. Very small crust, and not a lot of cheese. Spinach and fruit also. I'll make a point of eating a lot of veggies for the next couple of weeks.

And speaking of veggies, the other thing I made tonight was an acorn squash. I halved it and put it cut side down on an oiled pan in the oven for an hour and a quarter. I adore acorn squash fixed this way, when the juice has caramelized on the foil during baking, and you scoop it out of the skin with a spoon. I ate about 1/4 of that and the rest is in the fridge. Lots of good leftovers for this week.

I cut and trimmed and rinsed some basil. It's in the garage right now wilting, then I'll hang it in the house to dry.
