BRR! Thank goodness it is supposed to warm up this week because these single-digit temperatures are for the birds! Well, not really, because most of them are smart enough to head south, which seems like a good idea to me right about now. On the other hand, if we have to deal with a day or 2 of temperatures that are below freezing to get the other 70-80% above freezing, well, I think I can handle that. Not that we can do anything about it, right?
Confession: Last week I didn’t follow my menu plan at all. I had good intentions, I really did. Those intentions went out the window when my back strain flared up. The muscle I pulled the week before had been improving nicely until I was a little lax with the Advil and tweaked it. It seems that the Advil may not have been doing much for the pain, but was for the inflammation. I have since switched to Naprosyn and am feeling much better. Hoping this trend continues and I can get back on track this week with laundry, cooking, baking & such.
