I started writing this week's menu plan about twelve hours ago. My original direction involved admitting that I was happy to have January behind us.

But then February found a way to kick us in the ass.

I ended January by getting sick and, basically, operating at 60% since Tuesday. And then... we had to cancel plans to go away for the weekend because I got sick.

Yes, you heard me.

Another opportunity for Stephen and I have to have quality time for our marriage... thwarted. Last time, Mother Nature wasn't having it. This time, winter sickness got in the way.

It's too disappointing to think about.

(Though, to be fair, my parents still took the kids for an overnight as planned. This allowed me uninterrupted time to recover a bit more. And, Stephen and I decided to go for Korean food so I could feed my cold, as well. So, not a total loss.)

As if that weren't bad enough, we had to deal with some kid-related stuff pretty much as soon as we got home with them today... So the hits just keep coming. Which is why this post is so late tonight.

While I worked through the thousandth load of laundry of the night... here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week.
