You know the drill – time to share your menu for the week! Plain or fancy, all are welcome! 


  1. My husband and kids all have that nasty stomach virus that’s going around. Daughter is on the tail end of it, hubby is feeling well enough to sit on the couch, and my little guy is still in the middle of it. I’m so incredibly sick of cooking toast, applesauce, and bananas for meals!

    We were in Las Vegas last week, and had some wonderful buffets–this week will not be nearly that exciting 🙂

    Sunday-Chicken soup for those who are up for it, Aglio e Olio for me (I’m not sick!)

    Monday-Chicken soup for them, leftover pasta for me

    Tuesday-Scrambled Eggs and Toast for them, Mushroom and bell pepper omelets for me

    Wednesday-Saturday-Hopefully everyone is 100%…I’ll assess the menu then 🙂
