    What Did We Eat Today?

    Unfortunately, my room is more like a sort of continuing care hospital room-type set up. It looks like a regular bedroom, except the beds have side rails where needed & the area of the building where my room is has 24 hour nursing/nurse’s aide care. So no access to cooking facilities. Thanks again for the thoughts! I’ll figure out a way to try lemon buttered noodles; though it may take me awhile!

    Peanut Butter: Creamy or Crunchy?

    I love (smooth/creamy) peanut butter & peanut butter cookies, without peanuts in them. But I don’t like peanuts (I also like ketchup/catsup & tomato/spaghetti sauces, but I don’t like tomatoes). Is that weird?

    Yep, we actually have multiple food/restaurant delivery services that can come to our facility (a local company, Uber Eats, Grubhub, Eat24, & Postmates—I think that’s all of them). Unfortunately, if I wanted to eat there, I’m too physically immobile to go to my Mom’s apartment; she has to come to me—she’s now in her 2nd apartment here & I’ve never seen either of them even though we’ve been here almost 2 years. I swear, someone’s gonna have to take pics of her current place on my phone. Thanks for the thoughts though!

    Unfortunately it’s kinda hard to just get them to add foods on request. They have meals planned 6 months ahead & the same meals rotate on a week-to-week basis (like there are something like 6 weeks worth of meals scheduled in that 6 months & they rotate for the scheduled 6 weeks throughout that 6 months). It’s the epitome of “Taco Tuesday”, but we’ve never actually had tacos since I’ve lived here—we do, however, get pretty good chimichangas, & grande tostadas every few weeks; the latter weren’t real good the last time I tried them, & we also had them all week on this week’s menus (which change tomorrow/on Mondays).

    What Did We Eat Today?

    Unfortunately we don’t have a Trader Joe’s here. Plus I can’t drive (neither can my Mom, who lives here too), & even if we had 1 & I (or Mom) could drive, I have physical medical issues which keep me confined (though I hate the severity of that word) here. I also can’t cook for myself, & my Mom stopped cooking when we moved here, as far as I know, & she eats the stuff provided in her end of the facility instead. And we don’t really seem to have anybody on staff whose function is to help residents with stuff like shopping if they can’t get out themselves (my Mom is in an independent living apartment, but it’s still hard to go anywhere since she usually has to wait until the facility is giving transportation wherever she wants/needs to go) I’m in more like a continuing hospital-type care situation in the same facility). I did find out we’re supposed to have beef stroganoff over noodles for either our lunch or dinner special today. I’m gonna try to get an extra order of plain noodles with that if the noodles & sauce aren’t already mixed (we have a lot of “something over noodles” type entrees here & I’ve never had a problem getting the noodles just plain if I didn’t like what they were being served with) & ask for a lemon wedge on the side, although I don’t think there’s anything else on the menu that requires lemon (I drink Cherry Pepsi) & it might look weird (we do have a daily seafood special, which might help). I’ll let you know what happens.

    I love (way more than I know I should) buttered noodles (or buttered pasta, in general). I’ve never tried them with lemon though, which I also love. Wish I’d known about that, so I could’ve tried it, before my mom & I moved into an assisted living center after my dad died 2 years ago & someone else now does the cooking, on a set menu, which will make it hard to try this now. Unless we happen to have buttered noodles with some form of seafood on the menu & I can get lemon on the side for the seafood, but use it on the noodles.

    According to his Wikipedia page, William was deployed to the Falklands for a 6-week tour with No. 1564 Flight from February to March, 2012. The Argentine government condemned his deployment to the islands, close to the 30th anniversary of the beginning of the Falklands War, as “a provocative act” (years before being deployed to The Falklands, William also flew to Afghanistan in a C-17 Globemaster to repatriate the body of a fallen soldier). But, because of his place in the line of succession to the British throne & because of threats already received in connection with his brother Harry serving in the war (resulting in either the cancellation of 1 deployment or Harry’s early removal from 1 deployment), William never actually served in a war. Prince Andrew flew helicopters in the Falklands War & Prince Harry served in Afghanistan &/or Iraq.

    I’m sorry Robin isn’t here to be with his grandson. He would’ve been a cool grandpa, I think. Probably reading/telling stories in all sorts of different voices, & all that.
