It’s that time of year — light jackets have been swapped for down parkas and puffy coats, local restaurants have added hearty soups and stews to their menus, store windows are decorated for the holidays…and cold viruses are going around like the plague. Logan spent nearly a week battling a persistent fever that appeared with a nasty case of Strep throat. A few days ago, my husband got sick, too. Although he isn’t as ill as Logan was, he’s still pretty miserable. I spent the weekend chewing Vitamin C tablets and praying I didn’t get sick, too
Sunday’s steak dinner was swapped out for soup, since Johnny is still feeling pretty miserable. I must be feeling very soup-y this week, because I have two of them on the menu, a creamy butternut squash soup and a hearty sausage and kale. With this week’s temperatures rising to only the mid 50’s, tis the season for something warm in my tummy!
