Thursday Was Not So Good

“Everything is going to be alright. Maybe not today, but eventually.”—Unknown

We hung around the house all day today.  I did some playing with the garage door opener switches but that was about it.

We did get an appointment with the urologist so that is moving in the right direction.

we went to lunch with Robin at the Mexican/Caribbean Grill in Seal Beach but they were out of the vegetable tamales so Sue had to settle for the Chile Relleno as that is the only other thing that is vegetarian 

Did You Know? In Mexico, it consists of a stuffed, roasted, fresh poblano pepper (a large and mild chili pepper named after the city of Puebla), sometimes replaced with a Hatch chile, Anaheim, pasilla or even jalapeño chili pepper. In 1858 it was described as a “green chile pepper stuffed with minced meat and coated with eggs”.

In current cuisine, it is typically stuffed with melted cheese, such as queso Chihuahua or queso Oaxaca or with picadillo meat made of diced pork, raisins and nuts, seasoned with canella; covered in an egg batter or simply corn masa flour and fried. Although it is often served in a tomato sauce, the sauces can vary.

Some versions in Mexico use rehydrated dry chiles such as anchos or pasillas.

In the United States, chiles rellenos are usually filled with asadero, asiago,[citation needed] or Monterey Jack cheese, but can also be found with cheddar or other cheeses. The chile is then dipped in an egg batter and either pan-fried or deep-fried. Chiles rellenos are a popular cuisine in the state of New Mexico, where the Hatch chile is revered for its slender (rather than round) shape and medium-to-hot flavor. In the US, rellenos are typically served with red or green chile sauce or mole.

Just when we think all is going well, it is something else.  Sue’s SI joint is acting up (intense pain in the lower back making sitting.walking extremely painful) so she crashed early, about 3:00 PM and slept until 7:00 PM  We watched some TV but my 11:30 the pain was pretty intense.  We called it a “bad” day.  We called it a “bad” day except for the visit with Robin which always makes things better!!
