Meal Plan Monday

Last week's new dish was Broccoli Chicken Cups. I love the idea of individual servings due to the biscuit cup! It was really tasty and simple to make. I give it two thumbs up. This week is yet another action packed week, so my dishes are simple (I'm sensing a theme for life). Have a great week everyone!
