No menu for this week - life intervenes

I haven't planned a menu for this week and don't intend to. Two hours after I posted the last entry and got to bed my phone rang. It was my sister telling me my stepfather's heart had stopped and he was moved to cardiac ICU.  He's still there but hopefully will be moved to a regular room today or tomorrow. I'm trying to keep my sanity and work and help my mother and I don't have time for menu planning right now. The reality is I probably need it more now than ever but I just don't have it in me to sit down and plan meals.

I have part of an uncooked roast in the fridge and will put that in marinade before I go to work in awhile and then cook it when I get in tonight. I'll have that tonight with roasted brussels sprouts and probably take whatever is left to Mom's house in the morning. My sisters are there and it will feed us for a meal or two, at least. Other than that, food isn't even on my mind.

Hopefully things will be calmer in a few days and I can give a little more thought to healthy eating. For now, just eating is a chore.
