Cold, Cold, Go Away, Come Again Another Year.

This week I have been struck down with a cold. Thankfully not the flu. But still a yicky very {snotty} cold!!

It has put a dampener on organising my shopping trip for the weekend, cooking meals for my boys during the week and in general being on top of everything.

This means the last three menu items for this fortnight haven't gone to plan. Honey Mustard Chicken that was meant to be served with rice - so Fried Rice could be made - was had with beautiful curly pasta hmmmmmm tasted good with my sore throat!

Fried Rice is out the window now until Friday night. And the last menu item of lamb chops, vegies and pasta was replaced last night by KFC.... O_o .... :D

Now we don't do the takeaway thing very often at all and even rarer an occasion it is that we resort to KFC of all things, but I tell you what when it comes to takeaway that was value for money! 9 pieces of chicken, 9 nuggets, large gravy, four breadrolls and two large chips - $24.95. Plenty of food for 2 adults and one little guy (oh the shame of my under 2 year old eating nuggets!!) and leftover chicken for the husband's lunch!!! As a treat, you really can't go wrong and you'd easily feed possible another two children with what was there.

So, if you're sick, it's late and you're fortunate enough to be able to spare the $$ don't beat yourself about getting takeaway occasionally, it won't hurt.
