Meal Planning Monday

Hey Guys, We've had a sick household all weekend so I didn't achieve much other than lots of time spent with my 2 unwell little men, Mr 1 & Mr 7. I too am sick so I don't think this meal plan will be too adventurous..

Monday (Meatless Monday) Tomato Soup & Toast (told you it wouldn't be too adventurous!)
Tuesday: Herbed fish w/ vegetables.
Wednesday: Apricot Chicken on Rice.
Thursday: Ravioli with Tomato & Basil Sauce.
Friday: Homemade Pizza's
Saturday: Salmon & Vegetable Bake.
Sunday: Sunday Roast (chicken) with Veggies.

Bake List:
Choc chip cookies
Vanilla cupcakes

You might see Iv made Monday, 'Meatless Monday' something a little different to always having meat with our meals (other than scrambled eggs or spaghetti dinners! Lol)

Till next week ~ happy cooking xx

A Sick Weekend..

Friday afternoon Mr 1 had a low temperature of 35.6 and all night (I know because I tested his temp every 10 minutes I reckon) it wavered between that & 36.1. I was especially worried because just before school pickup the tap fell off the house outside & we both got drenched with mains water.. So I was on high alert, not knowing if Mr 1 had swallowed water as he was in his pram when the pipe went wild! Scared us both that's for sure & certainly caught me off guard. I rang 13HEALTH & discussed my concerns & they reassured me that he should be fine & the temperature was moreso viral sounding. I had the home doctors visit who said the same, moreso viral. The next morning (or later that morning as the home doctor was there at 12:30) we took Mr 1 to our regular GP as he now had a cough.. Our doctor also thought it was a virus! & yes you guessed it another home visit from a Doctor Saturday evening who agreed with everyone else, didn't check a whole lot himself & spent the whole visit asking about our cat! (hubby later said he thought they'd sent a vet) lol.

So overnight his nose started running, sneezing & coughing & I too started feeling much the same. Mr 7 rang me late Saturday as he too wasn't feeling the best & wanted to come home from his Dads. We all had low fevers of around 37 degrees and aside from the fact Mr 7 had a headache, I had a sore throat & Mr 1 had a cough we all have similar symptoms. That's the problem with school returning.. BUGS! I hate illness & as the paragraph above reads, I get super paranoid about the kids being sick.

So today we had a restful weekend, lots of cuddles, games of little people, a movie afternoon for Mr 7 & tucked in now for sleep. Sick weekends certainly slow one down from the usual routine but I think it's a timely reminder to say take it easy & relax!
