Tuesday
The Guppies had a two hour delay due to snow/rain/sleet/ice so we all slept in a bit.  Also, G2 had her BFF sleep over last night due to boy drama - this time it was G2 who broke up with the boyfriend.  I think this is it for the two of them.  Thankfully, G2 seems very much okay!

We all had brownie sundaes for dessert.



Wednesday

Breakfast:

Dinner:
G2:  Chicken nuggets and fries
G1, Ramsey, Papa, & Me:  Flank steak gyros with Tzatziki sauce*
*It was another new recipe and I forgot to take a picture before I ate it!  I thought the seasoning on the steak needed to be amped up but everyone else loved it --- INCLUDING RAMSEY the food critic!!!  On the plus side, I have discovered I loooooove tzatziki sauce --- yummy!

Dinner:
Migraine and MS cramping in my legs was kicking my butt!  I really wanted to order a pizza but trudged on instead!  We were all home together...
Choice of chicken cutlets two ways: 
White Wine Sauce & Capers
or BBQ Sauce

That yellow plate isn't going to win any food beauty pageants but it was yummy and saved us from takeout!
