What's on our Plate: Weekly Meal Plan [4]

Another weekend has come and gone?  And for once, I can totally believe that we are at the end of another month.  This weather makes me feel like March has already been here for a couple of weeks, not that February is just getting ready to end.

We're also getting over colds in the TFT house this week.  I don't know where I picked it up, but I was patient 0 over here beginning last Monday afternoon.  I had a scratchy throat during the day and thought that I might be coming down with something, but there was also a lot of smoke in the air from a nearby fire and so I thought it could be that too.  Fast forward to about 5:15 pm and I was standing over the oven cooking dinner and was almost overcome with a feeling of weakness.  Hubs was kind enough to finish dinner, I ate a little bit with the family and promptly went to bed with a fever and feeling all kinds of gross.  (I was also really nervous that perhaps I had picked up the flu.)

All of that transpired into lots of coughing and congestion with hubs and I that has lasted the whole week, but is thankfully mostly gone.  Little had a runny nose for a few days, but has been fine other than that...and teething.  He has two more teeth coming in that seem to be giving him quite the trouble.

All of that is to say that sometimes, things don't go as planned.  We skipped storytime at the library and small group at our house to avoid sharing our germs.  Hubs worked late one night so he didn't eat dinner at home and one day in a rush, he forgot his lunch at home.  So we didn't cook everything on our meal plan last week.  In fact, we only made three of the things - and had leftovers the rest of the week.  

Just a reminder that making plans doesn't put anything in concrete.  It just helps guide what you'd like to do and helps think through a shopping list and meal prep.  It never hurts to be prepared.  

We're really hoping to kick this crud totally to the curb this week.  We didn't make it to church yesterday just to be totally sure not to share our germs.  Little plays with lots of other kids at church and even though we certainly feel on the mend, we don't want to take chances.  Especially with small children and in the middle of cold season.  

We're also hoping to get back to our regularly scheduled events calendar - playground, storytime, friends, and normal naps this week.  

Sunday: Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese - which was DELICIOUS, by the way.  I"ll post about it soon.  :)
Tuesday: Baked Spaghetti
Wednesday: Taco night
Thursday: BBQ chicken - maybe.  I'm kind of undecided about Thursday night. 
Friday: Homemade Pizza - because it's my favorite thing on Friday nights.  

Finally, as a little fun fact for you this week - Hubs and I started dating on February 29, 2008 so tomorrow kind of marks the 9 year anniversary of that!


  1. Philly cheesesteak grilled cheese?! That sounds amazing! I don't eat a ton while my husband isn't around, but dang...I'd make that!
