    Therealncyankee- good for you on the beef stew! I've read about Whole 30, and glad you've seen a positive outcome!

    I decided to cook the BBQ chicken breast in the slow cooker today so we had that for dinner with some salad and pecan pie that my youngest pulled out of the freezer yesterday. The pie was a freebie from Food Lion a couple months ago and it's really tasty!

    TheRealNCYankee - good luck on the whole30 challenge!

    jdouglas13 - you know you are both in my thoughts and prayers, my friend.

    Thank you to everyone for sharing your delicious menus this week!

    Oh my, now y'all see how well I text! NOT! Please forgive my many typos and inability to proofread. :)

    Many thanks for your good thoughts and kind words during this difficult time.

    Whole30-compliant beef stew. Yes, I have taken on the challenge and yes, it DOES make a difference!
