Deceptive Calm

Oh, Spring, you tease.

Last week brought us 86 degrees--awesome in June, a little less so in April. Then the flu moved in--one boy (small) and one husband (no modifier needed). Add to that the closing of one little league field and the shifting of the schedule and we may just have a "catch our breath" week here on our hands.

Fun development of the (otherwise dominated by state testing) school week: our school is participating in the Bonnie Cabbage Giveaway, so my 3rd grader is growing a cabbage. They are special "oversize" cabbages so we'll see how it goes!

Also: new find for us: Freddy's Steakburgers. Opened in an old Arby's, it's a great little hamburger and custard place. Food is good, prices reasonable, and the kids are hooked. And to be honest, so is mom.


Monday: Sick dad=lazy dinner. He gets soup, kids get quinoa pesto, mom gets leftovers.

Tuesday: Happy Taco Tuesday to me....

Wednesday: Wednesday Spaghetti, my next-favorite day of the week.

Thursday: Freezer cleanout. I have some Trader Joe's stuff to use up and some other randomness.

Friday: Night out, and not pizza! It's a celebration at my alma mater, and the kids' school night at the Phillies, so it'll be fun and busy.

Have a great week! Sorry for the complete lack of inspirational eating but I really just needed a plan for my sanity!

Interesting. Will you get this? Commenting on a preview of your blog from Feedly.

Hope everyone's feeling better. Glad you got a catch-up week, I know how vital those can be. Enjoy your outing tonight. Here, Jacob's sick (but not too, so it's fine,) Julianna's having a horrible allergic reaction to something with her eyes, and Rebekah's coming home (woot!). Sounds about normal, no?

Hope you're managing to stay healthy.

We are raising a cabbage also.
