I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far! It's been pretty low key over here! We stocked up on groceries at Sam's Club and Aldi earlier this week and grabbed a bite to eat at Quarks American Bento last night for dinner!

We have a Girl Scouts meeting tomorrow night then nothing planned for the whole weekend! I'm super excited to possibly be lazy for once and have a Netflix and Hulu marathon! I'm hooked on James Patterson's Zoo right now and Lost! We only have two more episodes of Zoo and I will be anxiously awaiting the second season!

Today's recipe is another easy one! Let the slow cooker do all the work for you, and dinner will be ready when you get home! Gotta love that! This chicken has tons of flavor and creaminess and you can use it for so many different kinds of recipes!! Leftovers are great too, and can always be re-purposed into a completely different meal to mix it up a little.

These are great served with a side of rice and beans and will feed the whole family! We also have another slow cooker taco recipe using beef! You can check them out here if you'd prefer beef over chicken, or give them both a try!

What type of tacos are your family's favorite?
