Sunday 7/1 – Chicken wraps with THE BEST flatbread – the name escapes me right now, but I’ll go look at the package and update later

Saturday 5/26 – Out to supper (THIS IS WHEN WE WILL EAT SOME MORE CHICKEN)

Sunday 5/14 – Maria’s Crockpot Chicken with black beans and rice. Everyone loved it. Alex said, “this is good chicken, Mama.” I did not eat rice because white carbs are not my friend.

Monday 5/15 – Giada’s Chicken Parmesan with whole wheat noodles and salad. But I will so be using Prego instead of Giada’s homemade tomato sauce, delicious though it may be.

Tuesday 5/16 – Supper with friends. Because that is what we do on Tuesday nights.

Wednesday 5/17 – Kalyn’s Chicken Tacos – only with whole wheat tortillas, because I don’t know if I mentioned it, but white carbs are not my friend. (note afterwards: DEEEEEE-licious.)

Thursday 5/18 – Amberly’s Cheesy Chicken with Stace’s modifications because if you’re adding cream cheese, you might as well add butter, too. David and Alex will be having white rice with this. I will not. You know the reason why by now.

Friday 5/19 – We go out on Friday nights. Because I am tired.

Saturday 5/20 – Hamburgers on the grill.
