This week is another flying solo week as hubby is still on bed rest. To all those who care for ill relatives on a full-time basis, I salute you and admire your patience, stamina and fortitude. I am starting to lose my sense of humour on occasion. Looking after 4 children, one of whom is a baby, and an infirm and largely miserable husband is challenging and exhausting in equal measure.
Enough of my woes and whining! Our Meal Plan this week is another low faff one, I need us fed well in quick time as evenings are hectic and at times somewhat feral when all the kids are tired. I haven't had time to do a shopping list again this week, apologies I must try to do better.
Breakfasts will be weetabix with warm milk and fruit compote. Packed lunches will be Calzone with crudites, herbed yoghurt dip, a piece of fruit and a baked treat for afters. Lunches at home for hubby and I will be soup with homemade bread rolls. I made a couple of large batches of soup in the slow cooker, and a couple of batches on the stovetop, over the weekend and froze them in portions for the week ahead. There is enough soup for my children to have a cup of soup to warm up when they get home from school too.
