Meal Planning Monday 2014 - Week 48
I'm having all four wisdom teeth out under a general anaesthetic this week which I am really not looking forward to - I've never been in hospital before so am terrified. Also, I won't be able to perform the Carmina Burana with my choir as the concert is only a couple of days after the operation and I don't think I will be able to sing. I was planning on having friends over at the weekend which is still going ahead providing I don't feel too bad, though I might not be able to eat properly still by then!
There is plenty of food in the freezer my boyfriend can have whatever he wants to eat this week.
Schnitzel with sauerkraut - on the menu plan for last week but we didn't have it. Inspired by our recent trip to Vienna.
I can't eat after 11am becuase of my operation so I will have a cooked breakfast and then won't be able to eat for the rest of the day, which won't be fun - I don't like to miss meals!
Hopefully I will feel better by now but I'm not going to specifically plan meals until I know whether I will be able to eat properly! Today is my choir concert but I've had to drop out; even if I am basically OK by today from Tuesday's operation I have been told to expect stiffness, soreness, bruising and swelling for up to two weeks so I don't think I am going to be able to sing. It might be OK but I can't really wait until I am on stage in front of hundreds of people to find out!
Hopefully I will be feeling better as I had invited friends around for a Thanksgiving dinner which I still want to go ahead! As there is a vegetarian and possibly a vegan coming I'm making several dishes. I've decided to do two versions of meatloaf as the main course as that's quite an American-style recipe, alongside sweet potatoes and potato wedges, with two desserts - pumpkin pie and chocolate cake. I hope I feel up to preparing all that food but with any luck I will be OK by Friday or Saturday and my friends won't mind if I look a bit bruised still on Sunday!
