SUNDAY:  Country Style Macaroni & Cheese –  This is ALWAYS, always a family favorite!  I hadn’t planned on making it last night, but when I asked my family what they wanted, the choice was unanimous!


MONDAY:  Slow Cooker Black Bean & Chicken Burritos  – Both of my kids have swimming tonight, and we have a busy day, so this is a perfect “dump and go” quick fix recipe and it tastes so yummy!

TUESDAY:  Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice  I have yet to blog this one, but it’s quick and easy and hopefully I will get around to blogging it THIS time around!


WEDNESDAY:  Slow Cooker Hobo Stew This is definitely not a “traditional” summer recipe, but it’s very easy to throw together and I KNOW that my kids will eat it, so it works for us!


THURSDAY:  Bubble Crust Pizza – I love giving my kids the chance to help in the kitchen and this recipe is totally kid friendly!


FRIDAY:  Bourbon Chicken Kid friendly and YUMMY!  Dinner in 30 minutes!

SATURDAY:  Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches My most popular recipe this month and SO easy to throw together!
