Cooking Blind


There’s an odd challenge to cooking a meal in the middle of a migraine aura. This cup of cornmeal feels level; is it? Where exactly is the top of the milk in the measure? I can tell the venison isn’t red anymore, but how brown is it? Am I going to get this done before the pain starts? Will I want any food by the time it’s done? Whee!

So far, so good. It’s in the oven and still smells like food.

On a side note, I have to stop beating myself up for being lazy when I just don’t feel up to working–not sick, just not well. I started keeping track. It’s generally three to five hours between the start of “lazy” and the start of the migraine.
