Getting Better
My voice is slowly coming back. I woke up Monday morning, felt like I did when I was a kid catching the croup. So called and made an appointment to see the doctor. She said to keep doing what I had been doing and make sure I used my nose spray. By Wed. my voice was almost gone, so off I went again. This time I was given an antibiotic and told to keep taking the allergy medicine along with the nose spray and eyes drops and to use a saline solution in my nose, plus rest my voice for three days. If I had to talk, just whisper. RIGHT, no one can hear the whispers, then I tried writing down on a pad what I was saying, guess I'm a slow writer. LOL Most walked away before I finished what I was writing. I'm still hoping by Easter it will be gone completely.

I did get two dozen eggs cooked, and then pickled four cans of beets, also with the cooked eggs, which they all shelled nicely, except for one, some of the white broke away. I was amazed. I've always heard older eggs peel easier then fresh eggs. I also had added some salt to the water that covered the eggs. I hope the yolks stay nice and yellow. The one that part of the white broke away, I cut in half and the yolk was a very pretty yellow. I hate to see the yolks have that dark greenish color where it sits inside the white part. I did the eggs on Tuesday so by Sunday they should be nice and pickled.

I'm also going to try a new pasta salad recipe I found, along with the old stand by green bean casserole, Becky usually brings a sweet potato casserole, but I think this year she's bringing scalloped potatoes, Angela, not sure, she hasn't said, Melinda usually brings bread or hot rolls and of course the pickled eggs and beets I prepared on Tuesday. For dessert I'm going to make the Chocolate Pudding Dessert.
And I forgot the most important part, the spiral cut ham.

Becky also makes us all a bag of candy, mostly Ester Price, I told her to please not do that this year, none of us need that extra sugar.

What do you have planned for Easter Dinner?
