Been crazy all day long and it's only Monday,

I got an X-ray last night for my right pinky (where the pinky meets the hand) the Dr is not pleased about the bruising and not sure about the xray, said she will have the radiologist look at it and have him call me tomorrow. I banged it on a corner of a wall last Monday, wish me luck!

I came home with a metal splint and 2 bottles of pills, Motrin for day time swelling and pain, and vicodin for night time (to help me sleep, and boy howdy, 2 of those do the trick).

While that was happening the sitter made Dirty Spaghetti for the kids.

The night before (while still in denial about my finger); Fried pork chops, not quite mashed potatoes, and corn with spinach.

I just seasoned the pork chops with Salt, pepper, garlic, onion and Marjoram. then pan fried in veg oil till golden and crisp. I boiled some red potatoes till tender and then stirred in nearly a half a stick of butter and 1/4 cup light ricotta cheese, salt and pepper, garlic powder. they were TASTY potatoes, I will do that again. The corn and spinach are a standard in our house, a 1lb bag each with 2 pkg ham flavor and enough water to simmer till tender. salt to taste.

Note to those of you in denial about hurting your hands, cast iron pans are heavy, so if you cook in them like I do, perhaps you should let them have the night off when you're injured, or just not lift them, or just send the children out of the kitchen when you need to lift them because you will probably swear, a lot, on accident.


  1. oh you poor thing... hope you're much better by now.

  2. I'm so glad you're taking it easy with the hand. Sometimes when you really do a number on yourself injury-wise, it takes a few days for it to sink in that you really did some damage and need to see a doc.

    Those potatoes sound amazing! And easy!

  3. the radiologist never called, I'll try to hunt him down tomorrow, but the splint really did make it hurt less so I dunno if that's cause I'm banging it into things less or cause it's immobilized now? I had to take it off tho for an hour ish to let my hand air out some, and then tried flexing the finger just to see, and owwwieie owww owwiwiwiwie, not gonna move it ever ever again EVER!!
