Another Tuesday Post

Unfortunately, the boys are still sick and David has been claimed by the sickness as well. The boys are starting to feel better, coughs subsiding and noses running a little less but Dave was so sick that he missed school yesterday. Anyone who knows him, knows that is a big deal because he does not miss work for anything! Here's the thing about meal planning, you need to learn how to be flexible. If you run out of time on one day, you can switch it with a less time extensive meal or maybe just have leftovers from the previous dinner. Last week, I did not end up making the soup or the chorizo skillet because of time constraints and conflicting schedules. We did not eat out, so I still count it as a win, plus I am bumping the skillet to this week and it is one less day to plan for. Meal planning is supposed to make your life easier, not stress you out, so don't beat yourself up if you have to make changes to your plans!  We had a fun time for super bowl, I made a ton of food but did not take any pictures. :( This week is all about prepping for Aiden's birthday, I cannot believe that he is going to be 4 this month! My little boy is getting so darn big!
