Sick Day . . .

ruby red grapefruit

I had to leave work early yesterday because my older two kids got sick at school.  Once the nurse calls to pick up, you can't bring them back for 24 hours until their symptoms have stopped.  I stayed home with all three today because we are not leaving this house.  And while it is a day off from my out-of-the-house job, there is no day off from cleaning, laundry, and cooking. 

I hadn't gone to the supermarket to shop.  I have food for dinner, but not snacks, treats, or even breakfast meals.  But I'd purchased a ruby red grapefruit for my snack yesterday.  I had it today with my english muffin with almond butter and fruit preserves for breakfast.  However, the baby saw me eating the grapefruit and "demanded" that I share.  She wouldn't stop grunting and pointing until I did.  And she ate half.  Imagine a 15 month old eating ruby red grapefruit.  I am so thankful that my girls (not my boy) are gastronomically adventurous. 

Lunch today will be left over squash that I'd cut into rectangular pieces, roasted with a bit of olive oil, apple syrup, cinnamon, and a touch of brown sugar; a piece of short rib; and spinach.

I haven't considered the entire dinner, but it will be caramelized garlic chicken.  Maybe with roasted sweet potatoes, and green beans.  So many options; and I am trying to make them healthy.


  1. OMG I love your pictures... what kind of camera do you use?

    I so want to be invited for dinner :)

  2. You sound like you know what you're doing in a kitchen! Yum!
