Is it Tuesday?

Two words ... Stomach Bug. That's what I've got and I think the baby may be coming down with it now. Ugghhh So, no Menu Plan Monday for me. It's pretty much 'scrounge up what we can in the fridge and put together whatever is in the freezer' this week. A can of chicken soup will do for me.

But, of course I have to stop by with some deals. Also, remember that TODAY is the last day to enter my GIVEAWAY. If you haven't already, go enter now. :-) I'll post the randomly selected winner tomorrow.

Hey, hope you feel better :)

The meal would be any healthy restaurant, but LOL I cook even when I don't feel like it (have some spoiled family here), only when I don't feel well I'm off the duty, than I'm like you, just give me soup and I'm good :)

Awww...hope you feel better. We are under the weather here too.

I always make sandwiches on the nights I don't feel like cooking. My kids are old enough now (except Grissom) I just put everything out and they make it themselves. So nice! A piece of fruit and they're good.

I also LOVE soup!

Tabitha Blue said...

Bless you and your baby! Hope you feel much better soon, it's so hard to see your little baby's get sick too.

I definitely make PB&J or grilled cheese when I don't feel like cooking, well, I guess grilled cheese is technically cooking... but... any easy sandwhich really, like PB&Banana, yum! Chicken Noodle from a can is great on days that I don't feel well. :)

I just love restaurant.com and their deals!

Michelle said...

Melody......I hope you are feeling better quickly. Stomach bugs are the worst.

My go to meal, vegetarian refried bean burritos! The are actually a weekly staple.

Mari said...

Hope you are feeling back to normal soon! If I need a quick meal, I often pick up a rotisserie chicken, Bob Evans ready to heat mashed potatoes and some veggies. I throw the chicken in the crock pot to stay warm while I cook the veggies and microwave the potatoes. It makes a really nice meal.

Jennie said...

we call it "Fend for Yourself", everyone can have whatever, in moderatoin, as long as they can fix it themselves... I hope that you all feel better, I know that there is nothing worse than being sick yourself and then having to take care of sick kids... hang in there!

Mandy said...

Hope the bug flies your coop soon.

Out go to meal is actually being prepared today..."Breakfast for Dinner".

FatGirlsSkinny said...

Awe poor Pennies!

I wondered were you were, that stinks your sick :( That stomach flu is hitting our area bad right now.

MY go to meal is grilled cheese. The husband works in the evenings and its the perfect meal for me!

Mrs de Miranda said...

Soup. I love soup!

Heather said...

I'm right there with you, but mine's a bad cold with a fever and everything. Yuck.

So our dinner tonight was an easy one: spaghetti and garlic bread. Although I did make meatballs, 'cause I'm a glutton for punishment...

Hope we feel better soon!

Eudea-Mamia said...

I was wondering where you were hiding. I forgot to check the water closet.

Hugs. Hugs!

My favorite thing when under the weather is buttered toast. Popcorn is a close second, but maybe not such a great option for a stomach bug. That's more cold food. Stick with the toast.

Feel better!!!! Here's to hoping the Babes doesn't pick it up as well.

Cereal :)

Just had some flax flakes mixed with a few of those blueberry muffin frosted mini-wheats (picked'm up on sale) thrown in for flavor.

Hit the spot.

I'm just getting over a 24hr something or other. Hope you both feel better soon!

KDLOST said...

it's going around! yukkkkk!

hope you feel better! take good care of yourself!

Erin said...

I hate the FLU! I'm just praying we don't get it anytime soon! Thanks for the Amazon update and the Restaurant sale! You're the best (even when you are sick no less!)

My favorite "to go" meal when I don't feel like cooking is Fazoli's pasta dish. I don't know if you have them where you are but it's not too bad!

feather k said...

Hope you get to feeling better soon! My go to meal when I don't feel like cooking (of course I never feel like cooking...cooking for 1 isnt so fun) is cereal...yeah..I eat it a lot for dinner... :)

Huse Yo Mama said...

Girl - 'tis the season, huh? You're probably the third blog I've read today who has the bug. Ugh. Don't pass it to us, please! I hope you feel better soon.

Go to meal - always spaghetti. My husband laughs every time it's on his plate. He says "didn't go grocery shopping today, did you?"

Mer said...

Oh NO! I'm so sorry about the stomach bug! That is just the worst! Here's hoping it passes quickly and the little one doesn't get it. :(

Jen said...

poor baby and poor mommy. I hope you all feel better soon.

Sandy Toes said...

I hope you feel better soon..it is going around this area too! YUCK! I always order pizza..I am so bad!!
-sandy toes

Crystal said...

Cereal! is that considered a meal? LOL. Either that or waffles. LOL. Its the best I could do, LOL. And sometimes we do this way to often, does that mean I'm lazy!

*And don't I wish it was 88 degrees here in MI. Geeze!

Denise said...

Praying for you to feel better.

christie said...

I hope you're feeling better soon! And your baby too!
Thanks so much for the heads up on all these great deals! Your blog is amazing!

Lynette said...

Hope your better soon! Feel good meal without cooking. Old one, a bowl of cereal. Easy, light and still sweet.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Besides takeout? Cook ground beef or turkey add a box of rice-a-roni, cover, cook for 20 minutes. Done!

TMI said...

Ugh Melody I'm so sorry! Just thinking about having the stomach bug makes me feel nauseous. Hope you get feeling better soon, and I really hope the babes doesn't get it - no fun!

My husband is a really good cook, so when I don't feel like cooking, he's my go-to. He never follows a recipe, doesn't have to menu plan, just rustles through the fridge and cupboards, and voila, deliciousness is served!

When I don't feel like cooking and he's not around, I usually head to the nearest fast food mexi joint. mmmmm....

Melodie said...

This probably won't make your stomach feel any better, but my "go to" meal for when I don't feel like cooking is hotdogs. We had them for dinner tonight, actually.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store!! so quick, so easy - and I love them!!

Stephanie Graham said...

Pasta with prego... dinner in 15 minutes!

Mamarazzi said...

YAY my question is the question of the day! woo hoo!! love everyone's answers.

i do a roasted chicken from the market and fresh salad and veggies for my go to!

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Oh I'm so sorry you are sick! The stomach flu is going around like crazy!

My go to is grilled cheese!

Jaden Paige said...

When I don't feel like cooking, we do breakfast for dinner. Whether it's pancakes, french toast, or eggs, they are all simple and easy to whip up! :D Thanks again for all the sweet deals!

gingela5 said...

I would usually marinate and bake chicken. It's quick for me. And I hope you're feeling better!

VintageChicChick said...

My go-to meal usually is pizza - whether frozen or homemade. My other choices would probably be breakfast things like pancakes, waffles, eggs since they don't involve thawing meat.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Oh no! Are you and your baby feeling better today?

Michele said...

I hope you are feeling better!
