So I got my MRI results this morning-- no stress fractures! I've been diagnosed with a right adductor strain, which is basically a groin strain. I got a prescription for physical therapy and I've already called my PT place in Arizona. Thankfully, they'll accept the prescription from Michigan and I have my first appointment Monday. I was worried that I'd have to wait til the University opened, make an appointment at the health center there, and have to wait even longer before I could start PT.
The bad part is that I still can't do any activity--even walking too much aggravates the injury. However, I am really relieved that I have an action plan set in place to treat this. Funny--give me an injury diagnosis and physical therapy prescription and I'm happier than I've been in weeks. I am so damaged ;)
So, our oven AND stove are still out of commission. The new oven won't be delivered until I'm back in Arizona, so meals have been mostly been microwaved or assembled raw. I am sorely missing my roasted veggies, but I did microwave some green beans and carrots as a substitute:
Topped with goat cheese and Emeril's original seasoning.
I had a salad with a Gardenburger sundried tomato basil veggie burger, topped with Annie's Island Marinade:
The veggie burger kind of reminded me of a slice of pizza. It was a nice change!
Then, despite my vigilant stance by the microwave this morning, my pumpkin oats still overflowed. They ended up looking so unappetizing I just didn't take a picture. You just can't beat stovetop oats for taste and beauty ;)
Q: Do you microwave your oatmeal or cook it on the stovetop?
If I have access to a stovetop, I always make the oats on the stove. If I have to, I'll make oats in a microwave (like in a hotel room), but they're never quite as good. What about you?
