Menu Plan Monday 9/12/2011
Since all three of my children are in one activity or another most every evening, I have to cook quick or set up in the morning for dinner. I try to do a little of both so I don't burn out one way of the other. For the Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup, I have found that I can throw all the ingredients into a crock pot between work and child pick up for football practice, set it to high for 3 hours, and it is perfect when we get home. If I am really crunched for time, I discovered that you can successfully put a bag of frozen chicken in the crock pot along with a bag of baby carrots and pour Italian dressing over it and set it to cook all day. It tastes great. If all else fails, there is always Chef Boyardee!
