Menu Plan Monday: Nov 16th

Hey, Y'all! I'm back! Did you have a good weekend? I did, although a very busy one. We left Friday morning and drove to Pickwick Landing State Park, TN, where my husband spoke at a youth retreat there Friday and Saturday. Then on Sunday he spoke at a church in Waynesboro, TN. It was a very good weekend! And this part of Tennesee is not very far at all from the area in Alabama where we formerly lived, so we were able to pop by there on our way out of town today to see some of our very dearest friends ever who just had their fourth baby Saturday night. She was so sweet and I'm so glad we got to meet her~she had great timing for us:) I also drove over there--just me & the kiddos--on Saturday so that they could hang out with some of their best friends whom they have really missed since our move. However, that was an adventure in itself and will have to wait for another time...

So, we just drove back home today and I am SO glad to be here! It dropped 30 degrees as we drove from Tennessee to Arkansas today and it's always nice to be cozy and warm in your own home when it's cold, isn't it? Plus that means I can start wearing sweaters--yea!! I {heart} sweaters!

And you know what cold weather means, right? Yummy comfort foods!! This week I've got a few carry-overs from last week and a new thing or two to try. All in all, I'm taking it pretty easy on myself this week with these meals. I am really excited though about trying the rotisserie-style chicken crockpot recipe! I'll let you know how it turns out.

Monday: (we had snacks on the road)
Tuesday: lasagna (from the freezer)
Wednesday: pot-luck at church
Thursday: Rotisserie-style chicken, potatoes and green beans
Friday: homemade pizza
Saturday: stir-fry, egg rolls and cream cheese wontons

I'd love to try the chicken, but since I have to have two to feed my family, I have to make them in a large covered pan in the oven. I'm still excited to hear how it turns out though. Hard to believe you'd get rotisserie-style chicken out of a crock pot.
