The Internet Kitchen: What’s Up Surgery?

by Nick

Just a quick update on my knee situation!

I found an excellent doctor that I feel really comfortable with after not being so pleased with the first one.

So far, if I’ve learned anything from this experience, it’s to not feel bad about asking for a second opinion.

My ACL surgery is scheduled for March 14th and I’m very excited to be done with it!

I wish I could have it tomorrow!

Bacon Jam - I’m really not a fan of super-sweet jams.  What I am a fan of is super-savory jams!  The sweet/savory combo is always a winner.  I’ve seen bacon jam before, but always thought it would be too much work to make at home.  Maybe not the case!  (@ Ezra Pound Cake)

Ham and Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Pockets – Homemade pretzels are one of my favorite snacks, but I never really thought to stuff them with savory things.  Ham and cheese seems like a perfect choice to me!  (@ Healthy Delicious)

Rutabaga Homefries – Any sort of cubed, lightly fried thing is probably my idea of a perfect breakfast.  Potatoes are obviously the standard, but rutabaga is an interesting idea also.  (@ Sippity Sup)

Waffle Cookie – I really dislike kitchen utensils that can only be used for one thing, even if that thing is very good.  Doing something besides make waffles in a waffle maker gets four stars from me! (@ Endless Simmer)

  1. There are so many astonishing cocktails to look at that I almost want you to start a small blog just on the subject. But I think Whiskey and Lavender is the best bet. The last gasp of winter is here! Well, in DC, winter never showed up. But still.

  2. I tried the bacon jam recipe from Ezra Pound Cake and was not disappointed. It’s a little labor/time intensive but worth it! I put it on crescent roll dough, rolled it up, and popped it in the oven. (It’s on my blog.) Delicious for breakfast. :) Good luck with the surgery!

  3. sorry about your knee — i read your blog a lot, but don’t comment much, but being an orthopedic nurse i just had to put in my two cents :) here is a link to a patient guide for knee surgery that we sometimes use:

    i find it pretty helpful to explain things. just remember during your recovery to MOVE! moving is the best thing you can do for your body. and if you’ve ever had surgery before and know that you get nauseated with the anesthesia – tell your anesthesiologist before so they can pre-medicate you. that’s all my wisdom.
    good luck to you and heal up fast!

  4. My brother had his ACL repaired last year and swore by the continuous passive motion machine. Lots of different opinions on it, but it seemed to help him to manage the pain and keep the swelling and stiffness down. Good luck with the surgery!
