Food. We have to have it every. single. day.
I am so over it. Well, what I'm over is the thinking about it part. The planning, the researching better options, finding better prices, locating different stores that could carry more of what we buy......blah, blah, blah. IT never ends. It does end- with a grouchy mom. Me. *sigh*
All my favorite little people have been sick and one was in the ER for reasons I cannot even begin to explain. All I can say is:
Kids are quick. Watch 'em like a hawk.
Sorry, that's all you get. But, back to the sickness. We have had someone sick off and on since the beginning of December! Enough already.Seriously. *frown* Couple that with bi-monthly menu planning and a tight budget, and well, your back to a grouchy mom. I promise this whole post isn't about grouchy mom.
This is what I started to do this week. And it was a success! Braeburn apples really make FABULOUS applesauce (and not just the baby variety). It is pink, sweet and tart all the same time! I put up applesauce and sweet potatoes for lil B. She is a fan, which I am most grateful for. At least one person in the house I don't have to stress over their menu! *laugh*
On another note, I am starting to feel better and more productive in general.I have been reading more to the girls, both their read aloud books and from Scripture (mostly Proverbs). It is such a nice time with them. Also, I am hoping to tackle my sewing table this next week and get through some mending that may or may not have cobwebs on it *sigh* Although I didn't see any expiration dates, so we should be good *wink*
So, now you know all about how my week went, how was yours? Are your people sick? What are you having for dinner?
Really. I need ideas.......
