Sickness= days running together

The past few days have been a blur.  I feel like the days went by quickly, but the nights of torturous coughing have been never ending!  I went to the doctor yesterday.  I try to avoid going to the doctor at all costs.  I hate the waiting and expensiveness of it all.  I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection.  I was given a prescription of cough syrup that was $50! Yowzas!! And that was the generic.  I was also told to take Claritin D.

So anyway, I have made several recipes in that past couple of days.

Wednesday night consisted of Steak Sandwiches with Worcestershire Mayonnaise.

They were so yummy too.  Ugh that is so annoying!  Anyway, try them, you will love them.

Thursday night I made Tilapia Tacos with Peach Relish.

These fillets are neat because they are individually wrapped.  So if you only needed two, then you don’t have to worry about wrapping the others up.

Our good friends came over tonight with an open mind about dinner.  It was a good recipe, just different.  I think I liked the margaritas better 😉

Tonight we are watching Twilight since I finished the first two books.  I am still sick and recovering so hopefully I can stay awake for the movie!
