I’m a day late due to Soso being sick, again! This is what I get for boasting how healthy my kid is… never again. Yesterday was the 5th Dr. Shoprite (left over mispronunciation from her toddler days) in a month. Just when I think we’re getting onto a regular schedule, bam, 104 fever.
The kid apprently has some kind of a flu, paraflu? Para-avian flu? Whatever it is, she’s on nebulizer and her cough this morning sounded a lot more productive.
She almost missed the school’s Fall Festival. I let her go for a little bit to do the craft she worked so hard in helping me get ready and to paint a pumpkin.
It was supposed to have a been a fun-filled weekend. Aside from the school event, there was a festival at our church and we were supposed to go apple/pumpkin picking. “I’m glad I got to go to the festival for a little bit, even though I missed everything else.” Poor, poor Soso.
Onto the weekly menu. D asked if themed menu was going to be my thing now. It certainly makes it easier for me to come up with a menu, having a set parameter. But I doubt I’ll continue. I’ve run out of themes!
This was how the original list looked like:
S – Broccoli Rabe Pasta with fish
M – Minestrone Soup
T – Butternut Squash Soup
W – Pizza
T – Stuffed Peppers
F – Left-overs
S – Left-overs
I realized on Sunday that there was no way I would be able to make butternut squash soup and stuffed peppers in middle of the week. They take me a couple of hours each to make. I made them on Sunday. We had the stuffed peppers last night and today’s the soup. The peppers came out OK. If I have decent photos I’ll post a recipe. The soup is good… at least the spoonful I tasted but a tad bit spicy. I adapted the pumpkin soup recipe. I think next time, I’ll cook it “Italian Style”, the way my father-in-law does.
Alright… gotta go b/c the kid wants to play a game.
