Rough, Rough Month

REALLY looking forward to May! This month has brought multiple sore throats, stomach viruses, and more to this house. I'm totally over it. Especially after me getting sick again this week and my husband informing me yesterday that he now he's feeling under the weather. I always catch something after moving to a new place, but this is beginning to get ridiculous!!! I miss real food. I miss having a clean kitchen. I miss always knowing exactly what is on the menu. *deep breath*

Last night my husband made Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole. It was the first meal in days we all sat down and ate together as a family.

I would post a menu for what's left of the week, but what's the point? I know we won't be able to stick with it.

Hopefully I'll be able to post a new menu and stick with it next week. I'm thinking grilled corn, grilled fish, beef kabobs, and fruit desserts might make a good start. Can't wait for the family to feel great and get back to healthier eating! Cause let's face it organic boxed mac and cheese just isn't quite the same as my homemade whole wheat mac and cheese. Not in the least bit! Ick!

Sick House

Well, Squish and I that is. DH is 100% as always of course. One day we'll be back on our feet. Just not today. Or tomorrow. Menu planning has not happened at all. Poor DH has done more cooking and commissary runs than he likes to do (which is ideally none for both). Simple meals this week, but at least it's more on track. I do have pictures and recipes I want to post, but it'll have to wait some.

Tuesday (4/17): Pasta and alfrado sauce with spinach
Wednesday: Grilled steaks and sweet potato fries
Thursday: BBQ chicken sandwiches and sautéed summer squash and carrots
Friday: Chicken and veggie pot pie over rice (in case you've missed it, here's the best pot pie ever!)
Saturday: Out to eat (with luck we'll be doing well and off to a nearby city for the Great Cloth Diaper Change!)
Sunday: guilt free spinach hamburgers, steamed broccoli, and whole wheat mac and cheese
Monday: Applesauce pancakes and bacon

Welcome to all my new followers!

Okay, so half is missing but half is better than none right now. :D I'll fill the rest in later this week.

Tuesday: baked potato soup
Thursday: Leftover choice: soup or chili
Friday: Spinach and cheese stuffed shells w/ marinara sauce
Sunday: Breakfast pizza and ???
Monday: something with boiled eggs :p

*****UPDATE 4/6*****
Well, Squish and I have spent a good portion of the week sick so the menu went out the window. We did eventually mange to make the potato soup and cheese stuffed shells at least. I will post the baked potato soup soon.

Sunday: Breakfast pizza; ham, rolls, potato casserole, and steamed broccoli; apple crisp
