M) pancakes and bacon courtesy of daddy

T) leftover chicken noodle soup, birthday cake for small group (We're celebrating 2 bdays!)

F) Chili Mac

Sat) Chicken and Stuffing Casserole, Baby Peas

Sun) Superbowl Sunday-- Fun foods-- wings, pizza bites, Caramel apple dip, etc.

M) Chipped Beef On Toast (make fun if you must, but this was a staple of my childhood and it tastes SO good!), Black Eyed Peas

T) Meatball Subs (Frozen meatballs in spaghetti sauce and cooked in the crockpot all day, served on hoagie rolls), Fruit, Chips

W) Chicken Tortilla Soup (this isn't my exact recipe but close... I use lime juice rather than lemon) in the crockpot, Beer Bread

Thanks Marybeth!

I have a Chicken and Stuffing Casserole recipe that is similar to the one you have for the 1st. Sat. However, we call it Chicken Casserole. I use 3 1/2 to 4 cups Pepperidge Farm Stuffing (herb seasoned-blue bag) combined with 1 cup chicken broth and 1 stick butter. I also cook my chicken breast in my slow cooker w/diced onions, celery, cover with broth and cook for about 8 hours. Chicken will fall apart very easily. Sometimes I will add cooked, chopped broccoli to the the soup layer of this recipe.

Great comfort recipe!
