    Week 666 Weekly Menu

    Well, this has been a quite a week, hasn’t it? I look back on this past Tuesday and can’t believe how different things were: my conversations, our family’s plans plans for the upcoming weeks, I had my choice of parking spots at Costco. Fast forward two days: conversations changed dramatically, everything for the next 3-4 weeks is cancelled, there is a traffic jam just to get into the Costco parking lot. I have to say I’m grateful to be married to a person who studied viruses and can explain everything so clearly. And our family is 100% happy to do our part to flatten the curve. We are not panicked, and we are grateful for all the scientists and healthcare workers working tirelessly to guide and care for all the humans on this beautiful planet.

    I’m still planning my menu. I’m hitting Frazier Farms right when it opens, hoping there is food on the shelves. If not, we’ll go back in a few days. From here on out it’s all about breathing, kindness and going with the flow!

    Week 666 Weekly Menu: Monday - Spaghetti; Tuesday - Quesadillas; Wednesday - Pot Roast; Thursday - Leftovers; Friday - Salmon; Saturday - Eat out, support local!; Sunday - Grill Night

    Also, um, kinda funny(?) the weekly menu number for this week is 666. Calm down, weekly menu. πŸ˜‰
