Let me start with the highlight of my week…Libby is finally home! Her mommy and daddy are thrilled to have her home after many long weeks. Kathryn started a blog to keep everyone informed on Libby’s progress and this upcoming journey. Praise the Lord she is finally home!

This past week I made some pretty amazing chicken salad {if I do say so myself}. This was my lunch all week. This chicken salad contains 5 ingredients, no mayo and less than $9! Can you beat that?

Earlier this week at the store, chicken breasts were on sale. I bought double the amount of chicken and froze the other half. Freezing is always a money saver. The hubs and I like our chicken salad shredded and creamy. The crockpot was my best friend again with this recipe. Take a look!
