Comfort Food

I managed to manage some real food for Thanksgiving, small bites well chewed — everything except for the green beans, which I didn’t think my throat could manage.

That was yesterday. And as the days have shown us for the last couple weeks, little by little, day by day, things have been getting better. From puddings in the hospital to oatmeal back at home to scrambled eggs and then fried eggs and then ham or chicken chunks.

And then today. Well today I am thankful for a lunch of Tarka Saag Paneer and Basmati rice and naan (Dad: naan!). And a dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers including a drumstick gnawed cleanly to the bone followed by House of Pies dutch apple pie (Bunka: pie!)

Admittedly, it’ll be a while before chips and queso, but I kinda feel like I’m beginning to reenter to world of the normal. … I mean, that pie was really good, therapeutic even!
