I haven't put together any meals worth posting about since the Firecracker Chicken, but I have made progress in one culinary area. If you recall my Passover post from last year, I set out to host a seder with my sister-in-law, but she ended up ordering up all the food, arranging for hired help, and taking care of getting the dining room at my FIL's house set up. Ultimately, I did nothing. Well this year, things are different. This year, I took care of ordering the food! Impressed? Oh wait, it doesn't end there... I'm actually going to prepare one of the dishes with my bare hands! One whole dish! I feel as though I've been catapulted into a whole different realm of Seder hosting, despite having 90% of the food catered. Who knows? Maybe next year I'll even make a second dish! I'm outta control now! Anyhow, if I don't make it back here to post in the next day or two, Happy Passover and/or Easter. Lookin' forward to that Charlton Heston movie !

My Passover Culinary Expertise
Hellooooo! Sorry I've been neglecting this space, but I've really enjoyed my break. I think I might still be on a break, but I'm having a down-moment and I don't want to clean anymore today, and since dinner is already defrosting nicely, I figured I'd pop in. So where were we? Oh yeah, veterinarians and cooking. Just for an update on Lucky, she is ok. The growth on her foot was benign, and we pitched the lamp-shade thingy around her neck after one day when we realized that she wasn't going to rip off her bandages. Our walls thank us for that one. Recovery has been slow, but now with the right drugs, she should be back to her usual, looney self in no time. Sometimes I think I deserve a degree of sorts in pharmacology with all the drugs I administer on a daily basis. Every morning it's anti-seizure and liver-related meds to Taz; antibiotics, anti inflammatory, eye-drops, and the occasional estrogen pill for Lucky. Every evening it's pretty much the same. Don't I at least deserve a white coat and platform that makes me taller than everyone by a couple of inches?
