I got pregnant almost a year ago and haven’t gotten sick once. I start back to work after having Brandon and immediately get sick with a cold! I was hoping my allergies were creeping back but sadly that is not the case. Brandon has been coughing for about a week, I’m thinking maybe we got something from Daycare?…who knows. He had a difficult Sunday and just wanted to be held and snuggled. Today, I was home sick on Monday with fever and chills and now Kevin is coming down with it. Life with a child.
In other news, if it wasn’t for my meal prepping on Sunday this week would have REALLY sucked when dinner rolled around. Here’s what was on the menu this week!
Breakfast: Egg and Sausage Casserole with onions peppers and black beans.
Monday: Eggplant Boats (sorry no picture, we were too hungry). Cut and Eggplant in half and scoop out the seeds, fill it with cooked chicken sausage, pasta sauce and mozz. Bake for about an hour and voila. (here’s the sausage)
Tuesday: Chicken in Crescent Rolls. WHAT! Unroll Crescent Dough and keep the two triangles together as a rectangle. Fill with chicken, cheese and ranch dressing, roll up and bake for 10 minutes. These were easy and really tasty! Try with sauce and pepperoni or steak and cheese.
Wednesday: Zucchini Pasta with Cauliflower Sauce. Another winner. Slice zucchini thin on a mandolin and boil. Boil cauliflower then puree with milk, greek yogurt, cornstarch, butter, garlic, chives and parsley. Top Zucchini and serve.
Thursday: Lasagne Soup! I made this Wednesday night while I was prepping some meals to freeze for a friend who is having TWINS next week. 🙂 Figure I could get all my cooking done in one night. My ‘soup’ sat overnight so looks more like Lasagne Chili since the noodles absorbed a lot of the liquid, but oh so good.
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday…I have no meals planned in hopes that maybe I don’t have to cook! It’s been a long, tiring and exhausting week and I need a break for sure. Time to start planning next weeks menu.
