Week 696 Weekly Menu

Well, life took an interesting turn. I cut my hand on a flower vase and now have to see a hand surgeon to repair my thumb’s flexon tendon. My dominant hand is down for the count for the time being and I can’t cook. SOOOO…as our family adjusts for the next little while, I’m planning meals that my girls can easily pull together with little to no coaching. Also, it just took 20 hours to type that, the first thing I’ve typed since the injury. Who knew switching thumbs on the keyboard would throw my speedy typing off SO much?! Send lots of luck to the Maynards this week! 😉 I am also foregoing the cute menu graphic this week…at least I got this far!


  • Chicken Enchiladas
