WIS, WWA | Annnd I have Covid

In an odd happenstance, here I am with Covid again, almost exactly a year after I got it the first time.

covid test.

I’m having a major sense of deja vu.

Just like last time, I’m not experiencing any concerning symptoms; I just feel like crap. And I am very tired.

If this post seems briefer than usual, that’s probably why. 

So far no one else has it, and let’s hope it stays that way.

You know what’s wild? I made it through a whole semester of multiple classes and did not get sick at all. And now that I’m not at school, I got Covid.

So weird!

What I Spent

I spent:

  • $32 at Aldi
  • $35 at Lidl
  • $22 at Safeway

So, $89.

What We Ate


I got together with a friend from my online support group (she lives semi-close, and we were able to meet at an in-between spot!). The girls fended for themselves while I was gone. 


We had BLTs, which I never, ever get tired of.

Sonia was over for dinner, so I made one of her favorites: Swedish meatballs

I got out a bag of pulled pork from the freezer, which we ate on buns, with fresh produce on the side. 


Bacon and cheese quesadillas, plus some fresh fruit, and chips and queso.


More pulled pork from the freezer. 


Man, I really do not know. Maybe we will get delivery from somewhere.

What did you have for dinner this week?

P.S. I just took the Covid test yesterday; I was fine earlier in the week, which is why I met up with my friend and also had Sonia over. Wednesday was the first day I felt off, and yesterday I REALLY felt off.

How are you doing? I was hoping that you're not too sick, and that you can sit back and relax and get better!

Feel better soon! I still mask up at all inside locations & have been covid free since the beginning. I am immune compromised so it is important to me.

We have done really well in January with not eating out, and I'm hoping to keep it up into February!

Sunday: We had not eaten out all month, so when two of my kids went to youth group (where they were getting pizza), the other four of us picked up a couple of pizzas from our favorite pizza place. It was a really nice treat!

Monday: Whole chicken in the instant pot, egg noodles, and a creamy mushroom sauce.

Tuesday: Crispy gnocchi and brussel sprouts (an Ali Sagle reciple from NYT Cooking that is so so good) with chicken

Wednesday: Husband was home due to snow day and made tacos

Thursday: Bread and creamy white chicken chili. I think I first found this recipe here and it's my go-to for bringing meals to people who aren't dairy-free. I brought it to a friend who recently had twins, and her 2yo son opened the container I'd put it in while we were chatting with the babies and starting eating it. He loved it. That recipe is a winner.

Friday: Shrimp fried rice with yum-yum sauce (another NYT Cooking recipe I love) for the older half of us, pizza bagels for the younger half

Saturday: Tonight fish cakes, mashed potatoes, and broccoli are on the menu
