I think my vitamin B-12 shots are finally kicking in. I have energy to spare.When the nurse asked me if I had been suffering from fatigue, I had to answer no. I have had 4 shots so far, one a month. Now I answered no, because I have never been a ball of fire.
Many of you don't know that I am very tall ( 5 ft, 10 in.), and have suffered from clinical depression since I was a small child. Not that one has to do with the other. I am just saying that as a child, it was a handicap being at least a head taller than everyone in my class, and being reminded of it every day was not fun. And the fact that I was depressed just made me more of an outcast.

But things have changed. After struggling with different medications, all of which seemed to just put me in a fog, Prozac came on the market. It was made for people like me and was a life saver. It just made me feel more normal.
BTW, please don't tell a depressed person to snap out of it and go exercise. It just makes us feel guilty and tired.
Since I am older and wiser, my life is so much better. Not perfect but better. And I have good friends. And a good husband.
Yesterday, I made a lunch for five of my old friends from Piedmont Baptist Church. We have known each other over 20 years and get together regularly. I am back in the Roman Catholic Church now, but that is another story.

Recently I saw a show about making mustard crusted chicken. It looked easy and good so that is on the menu today.
Sorry for this photo being out of focus. I should have changed my ISO but I was in a hurry.
Marinate chicken breasts that have been cut in half and pounded to about a half inch thickness, in 3 kinds of mustards that you like, enough to cover. Leave over night in fridge or at least for 1 hour.
Bring to room temperature and then begin an assembly line.
Dredge in flour and shake off excess.
Dip in egg mix to coat.
Coat with bread crumbs. The recipe called for Panko crumbs but I forgot to get them. What you see here is a combination of Italian bread crumbs and matzo meal. Hey, that is what I had on hand, folks. :o)
Fry in batches in canola oil and then drain on paper towels.
We had this with rice and peas, speckled butterbeans with fire roasted tomatoes, green beans, roasted sweet potatoes, salad and rolls.
After a leisurely lunch, we settled down with cherry pie a la mode and coffee. No, I didn't make the pie. Not this time.

Thanks for your visit. I wish that you could come to lunch sometime if you are in town.
Let me know. I will keep the front porch light on.
Blessings to you!
