Yesterday we woke up to this view out of the window:
The crazy thing about it is the day before my kids were jumping on the trampoline for a couple of hours in almost T-shirts... I'm trying to convince myself that I'm excited for winter but I already miss California weather with the beautiful humidity and toasty sunshine. Ahhh....
I'm grumpy today due to being slightly under the weather. That, or I ate something yesterday because I feel like I'm not gonna hold my breakfast (my one and only meal today) much longer. And no, I'm not pregnant!! :) It's just an overall yucky feeling, and it's hard to think of food and menus, period.
Luckily, I created our menu yesterday. I had to tweak it a bit because I wasn't about to cook today but I hope to follow it for the rest of the week. We have a Church dinner occasion that I'm helping with on Saturday and the boys will have dinner with Hubby's family. Other than that, we are staying in and staying warm:
Mon. - leftover tacos from yesterday for the boys
Tues.- borscht (Russian beet soup)
Wed.- zucchini pasta (using up the last zucchini from our garden)
Thurs.- salmon in tomato sauce, steamed rice, vegetable stir-fry
Fr. - plov with salad
Sat. - Church/family dinner
Sun.- cutlets, mashed potatoes, green beans
I need the fixings for the salad, otherwise we already have everything on hand. Oh, and as for food waste, I did throw away two avocados. I'm the only person in the family who eats them, and I just didn't before our vacation, oh well.
And what's on your menu this week? And those of you with kids/grandkids, how do you deal with picky children?
