Luckily, I'm finally starting to feel human again. Dealing with residual ear pain on and off, but it's getting better and since I'm only half way through the antibiotic course, I'm kind of hopeful that I'm on the mend here.
My son's hands are finally scabbed over, although there are a couple that are pretty thin in the scab department so we're keeping a close watch to make sure he doesn't reopen them. If he does a band aid is immediately applied for a few days. My son has actually found a liking for band aids on sores now and has discovered the relief and protection they can provide. So much so that he got soap in his eyes during his bath a couple of nights ago and was trying to convince me to put a band aid on his eye *laugh*.
Halloween went alright overall. Nothing really special happened this year between my arm, illnesses and just generally life being hectic. I actually had to do a quick run into town yesterday just to get Halloween candy as I completely spaced it was Halloween until my daughter insisted on dressing up in her costume to go to school. Not my proudest moment, but I got candy, both pumpkins lasted to be turned into jack o' lanterns for Halloween, my daughter got some trick-or-treating in (we let her go trick or treating for a few blocks and then we just go through the candy and sub out some candy we bought for anything that is dangerous to have around my son...it's enough to give her the fun, but not enough to really endanger my son with the peanuts) and the kids had a blast. The snow even melted and it was decently warm out for the Halloween festivities, which is something I still have a hard time with when it happens as I'm so used to snow on Halloween now. My son even got his usual Halloween french fries. So, I would say that's a success in my book.
Anyway, now onto this week's menu. I have a couple of recipes that I tried out that I want to share, but I'm going to hold that off for another time as we have to get out the door decently early today for my son's last long allergy shot visit (yay for this being the last one!), but don't worry I haven't forgotten about it :).
Menu Plan for Week of 10/31/16
Monday: Lasagna (daughter's request...normally we only have lasagna at Christmas, but she insisted, so okay!), garlic toast, salad.To Bake: Bread (if my whole grain flours even come in from Amazon...grumble), whole grain blueberry muffins (for breakfast on the weekend)
Tuesday: Baked Chicken (trying out some of my new spice blends I got at Carrs a couple of weeks back. We had the Caribbean Jerk blend on thin cut pork chops night before last and it was really good!), flavored rice, salad (using up what is left of the lettuce before it goes bad).
Wednesday: Stuffed Cabbage Roll Casserole (this isn't actually the recipe I'm using as I'm using one I found in my free Taste of Home magazine this month, but it's KIND of similar).
Thursday: Pancakes with Rose Hip Syrup, sausages, apple slices
Saturday: Hamburgers, oven fries with herbs, cole slaw (if I remember to get another cabbage at the store, if not another fruit/veggie)
Sunday: Chicken noodle soup (the hamburgers are a bribe to make my husband not be too grumpy about having soup for dinner *laugh*).
Desserts: Not sure really if we will have any this week. Maybe sugar free jello, but with the candy we've already had, I'm not too worried about adding more sugar into the menu.
