It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on my blog, Cucinalucia.com, and I want to tell you the reason. Two weeks ago, on August 11, I had total knee replacement surgery. It turned out to be a much greater experience than I had thought. By greater experience I mean big surgery, lots of pain, and a longer recovery than I ever could have imagined. I think that I will have physical therapy for a long time! Right now I have a physical therapist coming into my home but eventually I will go for physical therapy at my surgeon’s rehab center. I can’t drive for 6 to 8 weeks. And I can’t stand up to cook!
This has been a rude awakening for me and has pulled me away from my blog. But, I will be back soon!!! As soon as I can!!! I worked up some recipes right before my surgery and I just need to get them together with the photos. I also worked on some historical writings and will post those also.
My blog has been an eye opener for me. I’ve learned more about my family than I ever could have imagined. And I have cooked and baked more than I could eat!
Try out some of my recipes if you haven’t already. Start with my Sunday sauce and Sicilian meatballs. Serve them over the pasta of your choice, a salad and a loaf of bread! Delicious!
It’s going to be fall soon, a time when we start eating hearty comfort foods. Spend a day cooking something new with your husband or wife or with your children. The food you cook together; delicious! The time you spend together; priceless!
