Just because I’m currently a hunched over mess doesn’t mean I can’t eat yummy food. In preparation for surgery I made sure the house had smoothie making supplies, fruit, banana popsicles (which are actually really grossing me out…maybe too much sugar?), and some other easy foods for P to feed me. A few days ago I made tomato confit with a bunch of my cherry tomatoes (thanks for the suggestion Ally & Amy !). I used a recipe from Local Kitchen, but didn’t add sugar to mine.
While my throat is all scratchy from being intubated, I felt like I needed more solid food this afternoon so I made (with the help of Paul), an english muffin (gluten-free), with hummus, avocado, and the confit.
Very, very yummy. Although my stomach is kind of out of wack and doesn’t really know what to do with food right now. It’s still sad and making gurgly sounds. There is really nothing super nice about the process of having surgery folks (except the potential for being healthier afterward I suppose).
