I won’t be posting a usual weekly menu because we are leaving for New Orleans on Thursday morning. I’m cooking a big pot of soup today in order to use up any vegetables that might spoil during our time away. Over the next three days we will be eating bowls of that soup and using up perishables. Light meals with lots of fruits and veggies is a good plan for the added nutritional boost during cold and flu season, as well as possibly taking off a couple of pounds before our trip.
The main thing on my agenda for today is to get all the housework done. Tomorrow I have a hair appointment and will run a few errands while in town. Wednesday I will be packing and then we leave Thursday morning. Yay! We will be gone until November 2nd so this will be a nice, long vacation for us. David will have his laptop with him so I will try to post a few times while we are away but no guarantees. There will be some Facebook updates, I’m sure, but otherwise I don’t generally spend much time on the computer when we are in New Orleans.
So, I suppose I’d best get back to work. I’ll put on some New Orleans music to keep me focused on the goal. 🙂
