So, over the weekend I came down with this horrible cold - then I started reading up on how pregnancy automatically lowers your immune resistance, so your immune system does not attack the baby. Kinda wish I'd known that before...ever since the switch to raw milk in January, I haven't even gotten the tiniest cold, and now since being pregnant I've already gotten one stomach bug (no it was definitely not morning sickness...morning sickness has actually been pretty mild - some days nonexistent - please don't hate me), and one cold. So, 3-6 drops of elderberry in a glass of water 3-4 times a day, Breathe Easy tea, OJ, a lot of water, and lots of Chicken stock are all on the menu this week. Limited taste and smell, though (thanks to the cold), makes it hard to even try and contemplate what to eat this week, so, I marched over to Org Junkie before posting my menu plan, and scoured the links for things that looked easy, yummy, and nourishing. The crock pot is my friend this week...
Monday - Well, this one is easy. Tonight's dinner is a big pot of Chicken Soup with Rice. Made from my homemade stock, and then augmented with even MORE garlic, chicken, onions, and rice. I need Chicken soup!!
Tuesday - Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup - In the crock pot
Wednesday - Community dinner at church (Not sure if I'm going yet - due to this cold, but Jeff definitely will)
Thursday - White Chili (another crock pot recipe), Cornbread (gotta call my mom to get her recipe!)
Friday - Probably leftover Chili for me, Jeff will be eating out w/his consumers
Saturday- Lentil Soup, whole wheat rolls
Sunday - Pizza
