Chicken Noodle Casserole at Meal Plan Sunday #14

Happy New Year!

I hope you’ve had a great start to the New Year! Now, I know a ton of folks are looking for diet foods this time of year. You won’t find that here. Mainly because I don’t “diet.” And it’s not because I don’t need to. Trust me, I have lots of cushioning on these bones – ha! But as you get older, most of us realize that yo-yo dieting just does not work and it makes you feel worse in the end. So, I just try to eat less. I still eat all the foods I love so I don’t feel like I am depriving myself but I just eat smaller portions than I used to. I drink lots of water. I quit soda years ago and now just have it as a special treat now and then. And I don’t eat after 7pm (mainly because I have acid reflux – thanks Lupus!) I feel like this is a much more reasonable attitude for me to have because it is something I can easily stick with and there isn’t the constant up and down and I feel good about it. Food is enjoyable and it is a gift to us. So I want to enjoy it. Just in moderation.

So this week’s recipes are all about recipes that can make and re-heat the next day for your work lunch. The Mexican Shredded Beef is an absolute must-make! You will want it in burritos, tacos, taco salads or all by itself – so good! And of course, it’s a crock pot recipe and we love that, right? Just click on any of the links below to take you directly to the recipe!


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
