...has been caused by silence in real life. Much to my chagrin and family's delight, I dislocated my jaw. My family doesn't like to see me in pain, but I think they like the "it hurts to talk" part of it just fine.
I'm on the mend. I'll be able to chew in another 3-4 weeks but will resume quilty posts tomorrow.
First, something near and dear to my heart: a recipe for soup. Soup is good. I can eat soup.
1 pound dried lentils
1 t minced garlic
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup minced carrots
1/2 cup minced celery
4 vegetable bouillon cubes
6-8 cups water.
Make sure the veggies are cut really, really small (so I can eat them without chewing). Then throw it all in the crock pot and cook all day. Serve with crusty bread (that I can't eat for about a month) and a nice salad (ditto).
