Mellow Monday & Menu Plan

Happy Monday my friends!

Today is such a great Monday.  Daddy is home (due to a dentist apt.), we hit it hard at the gym, Lil' Miss is taking nap number two of the day and...

Brother starts baseball!

I am so excited!!!  Baseball has been such a tradition in my family.  My brother still plays on several leagues.  The best news - Brother's team colors are orange and black!  As long time Giants fans, you know how happy that makes this Momma and Uncle and Grandparents and Auntie. :)

We're starting the season off with a bang.  Practice every night this week and a scrimmage on Saturday.  I cannot wait to watch several 4-5 year old boys running around the bases.  I will definitely keep you posted on the season.

On a side note - do you know how adorable my sweet boy is going to look in his uniform?!  If he'd let me take a picture of him today in his practice clothes I would have had it here for you to see.  (Maybe I'll sneak one in tonight.)

With today's crazy activities I am so happy we have a crockpot and a self cooking meal for tonight.  Courtesy of Pinterest, we are eating Creamy Chicken & Noodles.  It really is a toss and go kinda' meal.

Creamy Chicken & Noodles

4 Chicken breasts
1 8oz block cream cheese
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 packet of Zesty Italian dressing mix


Place all ingredients into slow cooker and cook on high for four hours.  Cook noodles (we're using bow tie) according to package directions.  Cover noodles with creamy chicken.  Enjoy!

We're indulging a little tonight with the Texas toast!


Here's what else we're eating this week:

Monday:  Creamy Chicken & Noodles with Texas toast and green salad.
Tuesday:  Tacos with lime-cilantro rice and fruit
Wednesday:  Lasagna with a broccoli slaw salad
Thursday:  Leftovers
Friday:  Winco calazone with green salad
Saturday:  Family Date Night - Mexican Food!!
Sunday:  Enchiladas

Do you meal plan?  I do because it saves me time, money, and answers the never ending "What's for dinner?" question.  After you've checked out my menu plan and then see others at
