Weekly Menu 10/6-10/12

So…this week. Tomorrow, (Tuesday) I am having minor surgery. I will be knocked out and when I wake up, hopped up on pain meds I hope. This surgery is almost a year in the making, so I am just grateful that it is finally getting done. I’m also so grateful that my husband has such a great job with wonderful benefits and supportive employers who are allowing him to use a week of sick leave to take care of me, as well as possibly work closer to home the following week if I still need help.

What’s the surgery you ask? My Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor is removing a ridiculous wisdom tooth that has lodged itself in a place in my cheek (above my left canine tooth) where it has no business being and as a result of that tooth, caused a cyst or abscess (we’re not really sure) that went into my sinuses resulting in a sinus infection that I’ve had for about 4 years now. My left sinus cavity is completely blocked-so they gotta clean it out. Sounds fun, right?

Anyhoo, I’ve got a whole menu planned out for Josh. I’m throwing dinner in the crockpot in the morning before my surgery-and I’ve got a million in one things for Josh to do, including baking and cooking for the blog-haha! I know he’s thrilled about the list I’ve got going for him, heehee!
