No pictures this week, but here is what we are having.  I am going to be putting these recipes on my recipe blog too throughout the week.

Sunday - Chicken Spaghetti
Monday - Chili Mac
Tuesday - Beef Stew
Wednesday - Chicken Enchiladas
Thursday - Pizza (Nicholas has a Little Gym make up class)
Friday - Nicholas will have a grilled cheese and veggies while Mommy and Daddy attend a wedding rehearsal/dinner.
Saturday - Wedding for the parents and a birthday party for Nicholas

Chicken Spaghetti (1st time trying this, but can we say FABULOUS?!)
3 - cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 - 10 oz can rotel
1 - 10.5 oz can cream of chicken
8oz sharp cheddar cheese
8oz spaghetti
While cooking spaghetti in boiling water, combine rotel, cream of chicken, and cheese in medium saucepan.  Stir until melted and combined well.  Add in chicken.  Drain spaghetti once cooked, rinse, and add to cheese mixture.  Pour into a greased casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes on 350.

Crockpot Beef Stew
1 package of beef stew meat
1 can beef broth
1 can tomato soup
3 potatoes chunked
3 regular carrots sliced
1 large onion
1 package of brown gravy mix
Place uncooked meat on the bottom of the crockpot, then add veggies, gravy mix, and soup.  Cover with broth and 1 or 2 cans of water (I use the beef broth can) depending on the size of your crockpot.  Cook on low for 8 hours.
