First the chicken part …
We had the most amazing chicken for supper tonight.
It’s called jalapeno chicken. You have to try it! I’m not a huge fan of jalapenos but this wasn’t hot at all.
My friend, Joyce, turned me on to it. You can find it here on allrecipes.com. I love this website and use it a ton. I like that I can put in the ingredients I want to use, do a search and wallah! with a click of a button and recipes show up. Anyway, back to the chicken..we grilled the chicken and paired it with fresh lemony steamed green beans and sautéed garlic new red potatoes Pure bliss I tell ya! It was hard to not eat two pieces but I knew how good it was going to taste tomorrow in my lunch so I restrained myself.
Now for the knee update…
(not that DH should be in second place, but a girls gotta eat, don’t she? If I don’t eat, I might get weak and be unable to blog!)
By late last night, DH’s knee was really swollen. I doubt the motorcycle and boat rides yesterday helped that any but they sure were fun!
DH was able to get into the ortho doctor this morning and it appears as though there was a little more to it than just a strained knee.
He has a torn anterior ACL and a possible torn meniscus. He is scheduled for a MRI on Wednesday to confirm the diagnosis and rule out any other issues. He did have an x-ray and nothing is broken. Praise God! If it’s only the ACL, no surgery is required. If the meniscus is torn and the doc said it’s probable that it is, that will require a day surgery to repair with a relatively short recovery time. So in the grand scheme of things, he’s darned lucky that he only came home with a knee brace and not a cast.
Thanks for your comments and emails with good wishes for him.
