Taking it easy today. I'm catching up on reading as much as I can and enjoying not doing much more than a little laundry and cooking. Hubby and Son have gone to Best Buy so Son can use a gift card he has and hubby is suppose to pick up a new answering machine, of which we are sorely in need.
Saw a couple of stories of the beginning of Mardi Gras in New Orleans yesterday. I guess the city is putting the best face on it that they can. The medical community, though, is really concerned that they are not prepared to handle enough medical emergencies for the crowds. The city only has two hospitals with functioning emergency rooms. Health care has only been rebuilt 1/3 of what it was pre-Katrina. They are having to use a regional approach this year. I wish them well.
Tonight, with the leftover pork loin, steamed spinach, buttered noodles, sauteed fresh mushrooms, and freshly baked bread(with the help of the Pillsbury Dough Boy) will be served. This cold snap brings out the desire for good hot meals. And the kitchen stays warm!
