    Thanks for hosting, Yvonne! So sorry you’ve been under the weather. Hope you are on the mend real soon. If I lived close, I’d bring you some Chipper Chicken Soup ;-). Have a better week!

    Awww, I’m so, SO sorry you’ve caught the crud! It sure has been going around.
    Wish I were closer so I could help out somehow. Lots of fluids, Tylenol around the clock, Vicks vapor rub, steamy hot showers, chicken soup, loads of pineapple juice & REST!!!

    Thanks for doing the OTMM, even while under the weather.
    Long Distance Hugs,

    Yvonne… thanks again for inviting me to your linky party! As for the cold/flu? Do feel better! I have just started feeling more like myself after two weeks of it. Up until now, I’ve felt like I did in college with mono. Just like someone ran over me with a truck. So I’m right there with empathy with how you’re feeling!! Take care!

    I had a similar cruddy cold last week, and didn’t get a whole lot of sympathy from the household…feeling much better today and I think that Vanilla Malted Ice Cream Cake is just what the Dr. ordered to complete my recovery! Thanks!

    Yvonne, I hope you feel better soon. So many of my friends have been sick with the flu. Take care of yourself.
    Your week of menus looks delicious. And the ice cream cake……..well, I’m wishing for a slice of that right this moment.

    Yvonne~ So sorry to hear you are under the weather! I hope you have lots of chicken soup in the fridge. Zicam is a miracle worker for a cold if you start early. Thanks so much for sharing my Snowmen Melted Cookies and hosting! Hope you feel better soon!

    Thanks for hosting again, Yvonne, and I hope you feel better soon! The food on your menu always looks so very good. I just had to see what the twist was on your ham & beans since it’s a family favorite here. :) I am linking up my January Meal Plan today. Hope it helps someone out!
