Well, maybe not a dollar short… but definitely a day late.
As I posted yesterday, I had a stomach bug thingy going on – not sure if it was from something I ate or a virus, but I was pretty much horizontal and green most of the day. Little Bit ended up coming home from school early with a virus of her own – of the snotty kind, not the tummy kind – so we spent the afternoon on the sofa together. Big Girl became our nurse and we had a quiet day.
I woke this morning feeling MUCH better (thankfully) and found that Little Bit was still under the weather. She’s spent most of the day on the sofa watching TV, playing on the computer and drawing pictures. I think it’s just a cold virus type of thing, so we’re holding off on the doctor for now. No strep-like symptoms or fevers to be concerned about. She’s just puny. But she will be back to school tomorrow.
So, today, I was finally able to focus on figuring out what our menu for the remainder of the week without turning green. Even though the thought of food was rather nauseating yesterday, it bugged the heck out of me that I had no menu plan in place. (Yes, I know, I’m a little uptight that way. I like my routines!)
I’m very happy to have my plan in place now… It frees my mind up so that I can worry about other things… (and trust me, there are a lot of other things to worry about!)
- Monday: BBQ Chicken tenders, homemade macaroni & cheese, grilled broccoli
- Tuesday: homemade Salisbury steaks
- Wednesday: Grilled pork chops, cous-cous and grilled veggies
- Thursday: Beef Stew
- Friday: Baked Potato bar w/ salad
- Saturday: Homemade Mexican – tacos, nachos & fajitas
- Sunday: Crock Pot “Baked” Chicken, mashed potatoes & salad
- Monday: grilling out or Low Country Boil
I’m also craving my veggie chili, but it’s just been too darned hot for that yet. Hopefully it will cool off soon so we can enjoy some. I will eat it for lunch if nothing else.
I guess I’m just going to be a day late all week – since today is Tuesday and I really should be posting my Project Life pictures today. Oh well.
