Oh, it does feel good to be settling back down to the "normal" of things. Like sharing our meal plans with all my friends! We have another busy week of evening activities, but I'll use the Crockpot and microwave to help smooth out dinner.
During the week of Extreme Makeover, the Crockpot was a lifesaver! I would throw together dinner around midnight and put a post-it with directions on the fridge for my mom (because we were usually leaving home around 5:30am). When I'd drag in around 4:30 in the afternoon, I could focus on the children and nursing Hunter. If you haven't embraced your Crockpot, do it! It's a real sanity-saver!
Climbing down from my soap-box, this week we'll be enjoying:
Monday - Speedy Southwest Salad, Fresh Tortillas
Tuesday (Mom's Mtg., 4-H) - Spicy Lemon Chicken (Crockpot)
Wednesday (Indianapolis Tea Party) - Chicken Patty Sandwiches, Chips
Thursday (4-H) - Cashew Chicken Toss (microwave)
Friday (Meghan's 9!, Bible Study) - Our assignment is desserts
Satuday (Judging Contest) - 4-H BBQ Fundraiser
