Arghhhhhhhh you have your copy already!!!!  I'm waiting patiently for mine, I couldn't remember when they were being sent and for some reason my mail service is down so I can't check the confirmation email they sent me.  I'm drooling while waiting and hoping they are some good ideas for the holidays.

I guarantee you will find holiday ideas in it.

But ours were shipped free. Rod brought mine to the hospital, but I made him take it home. LOL.  I didn't want anyone to 'borrow' it. Time to look at it tomorrow.  I also got Dorie Greenspan's Baking from My Home to Yours. I think it weighs over the 10 pound limit of stuff that I may carry.  Beautiful book, but alas, no hiding this one from DH. sigh.

 You need an office, Jean.  It works wonders for deliveries!
  Maybe instead of carrying the book right now you should have your favorite books of the moment dispersed through out the house?  Call them..study breaks, or um...learning centers...or rest stops....
  Welcome Back!  I hope you're feeling as chipper as I'm reading you!

So far, so good. Humongous areas of bruising to reabsorb though. It will take a while for that to go away. A couple of units of blood perked me up a lot though. Will hopefully have an all clear by the end of the month.

I'm also on a 10 lb limit since my surgery. I think that is more debilitating than the surgery! Shhh....I've cheated a couple of times, but trying REALLY hard to be good...

I didn't know you were having surgery.   You OK? anything you want to  tell us about?  Get well soon, and mind your lifting. DH is being very overprotective. He even has learned how to use the dishwasher.  Amazing!!

Mine too! I mean DH using the dishwasher. Almost worth having surgery for!!!!!! He even went shopping with me and carried all the groceries. I don't think even he could tell you the last time he was in a grocery store.....


Of course, we had the neighbours 13 and 15 yr old kids at the same time while they went to Italy. We planned it all a year ago and when my surgical date got changed, I never connected the dots. Anyway, it all went well. Parents got home on Sat. I had made lots of meals and froze them so they didn't have to survive on pizza, Pat's solution for everything!


I had gyne surgery on the 25th and was in hospital for 4 days. I always told DH that if I ever had to have surgery, I was getting everything done at once, so I did. All tuned up, just like new..... hopefully in time for our transatlantic cruise in Nov!!!!!!!!!!!


And a great side effect of the anaesthetic is that I have lost my appetite so am losing weight. Don't worry, I eat enough. Just not eating the legs off the kitchen table. Somehow that helps with the weight loss. I'm hoping this keeps up for a while.


You take care of yourself as well. I'm hoping for a little road trip to Michigan in the spring. And it's good for the men to get to know their dishwasher better.....He even commented this morning about how much time it takes! I nearly fainted on the spot...

If you're in our area in the spring, we'd love to have you stop by.


In the meantime, stay well. BTW, my DH has been doing all my shopping for ages. I wonder if that will change now?  :)

>> Get well soon, and mind your lifting.<<


I'll echo that one - my DH didn't listen to the lifting thing after an outpatient surgery and wound up with some nasty complications. (all better now, but I was out of my head with worry at the time.)

Sorry to hear that! I did promise DH that I wouldn't try to bowl until the end of the month. He's being very protective. :) Didn't even want me to sleep upstairs yet.

You should live in our house. I knew it was meant for us the first time we looked at it- it has an antique stair lift chair. Very cool. I used it when I had a tendon repair to my toe and my mom uses it when she comes. Also very handy for heavy suitcases and boxes.


The reason I say it was meant for us is that DH is a physiatrist. Also good for our golden years!

I still don't have it but I tell you it will be the last time I  pre order I'm being tormented in every store I go to, you would think the pre orders would go out before the stores ughhhhhhhhhhhh

I had a word with customer service, who said that they wouldn't send out replacements until after 18 Oct., since they were giving it that long to get out to everyone.  The website indicates that standard shipping to Canada takes 5 - 14 business days, so even at the outside, it should have arrived by the middle of last week.  I think this will be the last time I'll order a special publication from the website - there's absolutely no advantage to doing so. :((

The only advantage that I have from buying over the internet is that I don't go to bookstores, so I don't know when they hit the shelves.

Well, how about this one...I finally got my chocolate magazine just TODAY in the mail, and I live in Connecticut, about 30 minutes from the Taunton Press.  But, at least I didn't have to run from store to store looking for it, and the recipes look UNBELIEVABLE!!!.  I recognize some from previous FG, but it's great having all that chocolate in one place.

Where do you live, Madeleine? I live in New Milford (also about 30 minutes from Taunton).

Just FYI--the magazines don't ship from the offices in Newtown, but from the printers and distributors in various states (none in the Northeast that I know of).

I'm with you. I keep checking my mail for it. It's very frustruating to know that I could have gone out and bought the magazine before it (hopefully) arrives at my house.

Still not here in Mass, I may just break down and get one at the stores because it appears to be taking a very slow route here.

I bought Greenspan's book at Costco a couple days ago and last night I made the chocolate pudding.  Decadent!!!  I think I may actually cut the bittersweet down a bit next time.  It had 5 oz. bittersweet and 2 TBSP cocoa powder.  The milk seemed to take forever to come to a boil and then the 2 cups milk measured 1- 1/4 cups when it finally came to a boil.  I probably watched over it too much and it decided to be stubborn.  So, that may be why the pudding was especially extreme chocolatey  and dense.  But GOOOOOD!!!  I can't wait to make more of her recipes.  I will definitely be on the lookout for the chocolate magazine you are all talking about. 

Jean's picture

Sounds good. I will have to check out that recipe. I haven't done much more than page through the book yet, I'm not ready to do too much cooking yet--sticking with simple and nourishing for the time being.

I love looking through a new book or magazine...I put it next to my bed, and if I can stay awake, I page through even if it's into the wee hours.  Jean, it sounds like you are doing just what you are suppose to be doing.  Good girl!  And you will have a quicker recovery.  Again, keep up the good work and your spirit.  With these wonderful friends at CT that won't be hard.
