February Menu

I started this post several days ago, but it has been one of those weeks with sick kids, a discouraged mama, spinning my wheels and not getting anything finished.   So now I'm taking 10 minutes to finish this up, print it and post it on the fridge so I'll at least have a sense of completion for one little task of my life.

After January's pantry challenge, I'm giving myself a little break and hoping to cook lots of simple food this month. With my husband returning to school and continuing to work full-time embracing simplicity is all the more desirable.  :)
