Feed Me, Seymour

The Dowager Duchess has already spent two nights at home in her own bed. Her recovery has been incredible. After only 24 hours at home, she began to take charge of her apartment again. (She even re-did her nails.) By tomorrow (Thursday), I might not be the boss of anything around here.

And that makes me so happy.

Too bad the weather continues its miserable ways. Otherwise we'd get out for a walk together. In the meantime, the Duchess did get out for a bit today (in the rain) so we could check in with her doctor. (All's well.) In addition, she and I do laps of her building's, thankfully block-long, lobby.

Temps are supposed to be back below freezing tomorrow (and snow). If the Kid Brother shows up, he and San Geraldo will head to the casino for a while (poor guys). The Duchess and I will stay home for some appointments and deliveries.

TSAR PUTIN.  OOPS!  I MEAN TSAR NICOLAS II DARK BREAD.
IT'S GETTING HARD TO TELL ONE FROM THE OTHER... THE TSARS, I MEAN.

I don't know what we'll do about lunch tomorrow if San Geraldo isn't here. He's been serving up wonderful soups and sandwiches. Tuesday, we had grilled cheese served on the most delicious Russian dark bread, alongside tomato/basil soup. The soup was Healthy Choice, out of a can (tin), but that's more than I would have done. Of course, he cooks dinner, too. Pasta, chili, home-made chicken soup, chicken/rice curry.

GRILLED CHEEESE ON RUSSIAN DARK BREAD.
TOMATO/BASIL SOUP.

Sunday, the Kid Brother and I walked over to Nathan's for hot dogs. Despite facing directly into the wind-driven snow, we had a great time. And we capped it off with another visit to the store across the street from Nathan's, IT'SUGAR.

It's the only store open around there this time of year; otherwise I would never have gone in... again. I swear!

SO EASY TO GET A SMILE OUT OF THE KID BROTHER...
ALL I HAVE TO DO IS ASK HIM TO PAY FOR LUNCH.
IF NOT FOR SAN GERALDO, THIS IS WHERE I'D BE DINING.


Feed me, San Geraldo...

  1. It will be nice for you to get home and feel some warmth in the air and sun on your face.

  2. I absolutely love dark breads. The darker the better. I'm so glad the DD has returned home and is doing well.

  3. What wonderful news about the DD! Soon things will be back to normal and everyone will be able to relax. (And warm up.)

    Sending hugs!

  4. Glad to hear the news about your mother. My mother walks every day -- she's 86 -- but when the weather keeps her inside, all she can do is walk in circles in her house. I wish she had a block-long lobby to stroll along. That's an additional blessing for your mom.

  7. When I clicked on "Feed Me"... an ad came up that at first I thought was what you meant... it's about what dogs eat... when it got to the diaper part I figured out that I should click "skip ad"... how funny!

  8. Great post, and so glad to hear your mom is continuing her recovery. So special that you are there with her to keep her moving about.

  9. Perhaps you need to go on a shopping spree in that candy store before you go home. You could say it is for Dudo and Moose :)

  10. Welcome home, D.Duchesse! Oh, my heavens, that grilled cheese and tomato soup (I hope it was Campbell's! I loooove their tomato soup!) looks so good.

    My sister in New Jersey is getting socked with snow again today (4-8" expected), so I imagine you're getting that, too. Yikes! Crazy snow this year!

  11. Nothing like getting home to put a spring in your step. I'll bet she's glad to be there.
    And if you're opening cans, Progresso makes a pretty mean tomato soup, too.

  12. Is that a store with wall to wall sugar? Eek!
    I recall Nick #2 died in the early 1900s; I think the bread is past its prime by now.

  13. Grilled cheese sammies and tomato soup, the perfect comfort foods! So glad to hear the Duchess is feeling so much better!
