School's coming... August Menu #1

I did not go out of town last week, because I caught a horrible virus.
Which gave me a no good, very bad, horrible day (or two).
And I could not drive.
Because I kept running to the bathroom.
I have not been that sick in a very long time.
Luckily, I had made a huge batch of spaghetti and taco meat, so my guys had plenty to eat because there was no way I was setting foot in the kitchen.  I was doing good to make it from the couch to the bed (or bathroom).
I feel much better now - nothing like a nasty virus to make you appreciate feeling good!

In other news....
It's here.
School officially begins for teachers in one week; students will come back in two.
And because any work I really want to get done will have to happen this week, I may as well consider myself back to work.
And my baby is starting high school.
(I may or may not be freaking out about that fact.)

In the meantime, here's what we're eating this week.
Sunday~  for lunch, chicken bacon broccoli alfredo, with noodles for the guys.  For dinner, pancakes made with Pamela's.  It's better than Bisquick, which is hubby's preference.
Monday~ interviews at school, so the crockpot to the rescue.  Fiesta chicken with rice (sub cheddar cheese, and leave out the black beans and corn).
Tuesday~ burgers on the grill, thanks to Hubs, served with coleslaw and fries.
Wednesday~ breakfast for dinner is the plan, but this could change.
Thursday~ sloppy joes (no bread for me), the rest of the coleslaw, and fries.  Unless I feel very ambitious, in which case I will make homemade fried okra with the crop in our freezer.
Friday~ the guys are going fishing, so I'm leaving this open.  Our 'Plan B' is leftovers.
Saturday~ TBD, but possibly smoking a brisket from the freezer.  This will depend on whether or not Hubs feels like doing it, and how the weather is (rain makes it difficult...)

Hope you are feeling better. It always takes me at least a couple of weeks to even feel like cooking again after a stomach virus. Sorry you missed your trip. Hope you have a better week ahead!
