Wow, I can't believe I got through the majority of our menu last week. I don't know about you but it seems like just about everybody and their family has been sick for what seems like the whole winter so far; us included. I do have to say that I feel lucky that, although we have been sick, we definitely don't have it as bad as others. Thankfully, ours has been pretty mild.
A lot of times when someone in the family is sick, I just bag the menu for the night and just go with something easy or something they'll eat. I'm not the only one who does that right? So, as my children are getting their appetites back, I just decided not to veer too far from what was planned and just have them eat it...take it or leave it is mostly how it goes in our house. Anyway, to my surprise, they did try some new things I made so I'm proud of them for that. I feel like we're moving forward again. Now, if we could all just get better and stay healthy at the same time, that would be great.
This week I have some yummy meals planned! I also get to cook for my little sister a few times, so I'm super excited to have someone not often found at our dinner table, who also has a willing palate to lend to my culinary adventures! Thanks sis!!!
I don't have a whole lot of repeaters this week, thanks to PINTEREST. I'm trying to get through all the things I've pinned lately so we're trying lots of new things.
