Menu Plan Monday--July 27, 2009

Monday: Crockpot Chicken over Rice**
Tuesday:
Pasta Night (meatless this week)
Wednesday: Chuck E. Cheese for a b-day party
Thursday: Vegetable Quesadillas
Friday: Eat out in Columbus since we'll be there for the day

**Crockpot Chicken over Rice is super easy. Take about a pound of boneless skinless chicken breast, place in crockpot. Pour a can of 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup, plus a can of 98% fat-free cream of ______ soup over chicken. Cook in slow cooker on low for 6+ hours. I often do cream of chicken and cream of mushroom, but we've also tried the cream of chicken plus cream of broccoli, or cream of celery, etc. They're all pretty good.
We serve it over steamed brown rice.

That's our menu for this busy week.
We're recuperating from a fun, yet fast trip to NC from the weekend. We have a b-day party this week, Aidan's first cross country meeting on Thursday, Speech, and then for Pat's work we'll be in Columbus all day on Friday. Phew! I need a 2nd cup of coffee just thinking about it all.
Off I go...have a great week!

Well, yay for Friday is about all I've got to say! ;)

I'm glad you had a great trip-- the chicken sounds really good. I'll have to try it sometime when I'm actually home for dinner :)
