The weather is supposed to be COLD this week, mostly below 20 degrees (Fahrenheit), so I can't see myself venturing out a whole lot. Although we will be taking a trip to the pet store this week, since we had a casualty today...
(Excuse the messy kitchen, we were preparing Christmas dinner for 23).
My daughter dearly wishes for a pet, but we are all allergic to either cats or dogs, and so every couple of years we end up trying to keep fish alive, but they never seem to make it very long, even though we try to be diligent in their proper care. This last one lasted only 25 days, soooooooooooooooo...my son gets to pick out another. My daughter's fish is still alive and kicking (errr uhhh...swimming).
On to a warming meal plan for this week:
(Any combination of the following)
Egg whites and spinach (hubby’s choice)
Baked eggs and cheese casserole
