School's out which means hungry kiddos at home during the day; I feel like the Queen of Snacks!

With the end of school and the start of June, my two oldest children have oodles of t-ball and softball games, most of them in the evening. This week is particularly loaded with games - one every night - so I'm keeping our menu as easy as I can.

Plus, who wants to cook in the summer?! ;-)


Slow Cooker Taco Soup + Salad


Mexican Hot Dogs + Cheese Quesadillas


Spaghetti and Easy Slow Cooker Meatballs + Salad + Garlic Bread


Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches (served on crusty bread with roasted sweet peppers) + Buttered Egg Noodles


Free Night!


Grilled Turkey Tenderloin + Veggie Skewers + Pasta Salad


Baked Slow Cooker Chicken + Mashed Potatoes

Hmmm...I see a slow cooker theme this week!
