We're having beef stew made with the left over pot roast from yesterday. I'll add some peas to it & maybe a little more gravy. Maybe have bisquits with it.

Monday night DH and I are sick (of course I had my flu shot 3 days prior to gettig sick, and he was just a few days prior to me). Trying to keep it from settling into my lungs.....

So anyway we still have to eat! lol Last night fixed us each a large individual tossed salad and chicken noodle soup!

Not sure yet about tonight, will post back here later once I figure it out!

Have a great day!
