On January 31st, my father was admitted to the hospital where he remains today. His health struggles while in the ICU have taken me on a rollercoaster ride. Dad has gone from near death to stable to critical to near death and then back to stable again. He has spent the majority of his stay in the Intensive Care Unit {ICU} and I have spent the majority of my days by his side. Since January 31st, I have spent 6-12 hours a day, every day, at the hospital.

If you’ve ever had a family member in the hospital, you know that there are three things you sacrifice: sleep, time, and food. Since my dad’s hospital admission, I think I’ve cooked dinner a mere two or three times. Most of my meals have consisted of cafeteria food, snacks, convenience items {to-go meals}, and fast food.

Since my pantry reserves have been depleted, I was happy to learn that Food Lion® is having a sale on the items I’ve been relying on over the last 6 weeks.

From March 3rd to the 16th, buy 10 General Mills products in one visit and you’ll get $5 off {Catalina coupon} on your next visit when you use your Food Lion® MVP card.
