I get my stitches out tomorrow morning. Yay! I have just a touch of a dull ache in my lower jaw, but it's more annoying than it is painful. The swelling is almost completely gone. You won't be seeing any photos of my chipmunk cheeks here. It's too embarrassing. Your welcome. ;-)
I've been walking a lot since the extraction, since bootcamp is too physical and intense for right now. Once I'm healed and the throbbing goes away, I'll go back. Even running at a slow pace hurts my face just a bit, so I'd rather not risk it. I sure as heck don't want to delay the healing process. I've been getting in a little over 4 miles on average since the day after I got them out. It's a simple way to keep active.
Slowly getting into Imperial Woman by Pearl S. Buck. I think I'm just biased in favor of South American realism, a la Garcia Marquez & Allende.
I am so grateful I rediscovered books. I don't know where I'd be without books right now.
Today I experimented with a new-to-me breakfast recipe that I've been thinking about. It's bacon and eggs in a ramekin roasted in the oven. I like my bacon crispy, so what I should've done is roasted the bacon first for about 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees, then added the 2 scrambled eggs and let that cook until it was ready.
I took a slice of thick bacon, chopped it up, and put that in a ramekin that I sprayed with Pam. Again, I should've cooked the bacon first about halfway thru, then added the eggs.
I didn't need to salt & pepper the eggs because of the great bacon flavor. I put that in my toaster oven and kept checking it. If you make this, you'll need to stir it every few minutes so it cooks evenly. Cook at 375 degrees until the eggs are to your liking. Some people like their scrambled eggs runny, I prefer them fluffy.
I'm not posting a whole lot because sometimes I just don't have anything to say. I figure if I don't have anything of substance to blog about, then why fill my space up with fluff.
I'm taking other book recommendations, so let me have 'em.
