Cabin Fever and Peanut Brittle

Cabin fever has set in early this year. The piriformis muscle pressing on my sciatic nerve that’s been causing all of my pain from my butt to the arch in my foot is finally giving me some relief, recovery is slow. Rest assured I have sketched several new quilt ideas and hope to finish assembling my North Star block . It looks so pitiful and neglected laying on my piecing table. Enzo, my quilting companion is thankful for my down time. He is the ultimate velcro dog and hasn’t missed any opportunity to cuddle.

During the virtual cookie exchange I had mentioned Peanut Brittle and told a few commenters I would post the recipe.

  1. I have suffered from scaitica in the past and know that it is very painful. I was able to conquer it with steroid shots and anti inflamitories. I recall limping into work with what felt like a knife in my behind and a numb tingling foot. I hope you get to feeling better soon. I can’t wait to see that North Star block in the flesh (fabric). Ha Ha.

    1. Anti-inflamatories did nothing to help me at all. Alternating Tylenol and Advil helped more. I gained 15 lbs in 10 days with the steroids, lol. Several people recommended a chiropractor and I did get relief, enough that I could actually do stretches. I’d rather have natural childbirth again.


  2. So sorry for your sciatica pain! Glad it is getting better. I have dealt with it before , but just down to my calf. No fun. Hang in there and love on Enzo! Merry Christmas and thanks for the recipe!
