Jeff's Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup (and Tacos)

With our crazy work / baseball / track / school / golf / football / powerlifting schedules I have fallen in love with my crockpot.
This is one of my family's favorite recipes.  It's great because it makes the most delicious soup, plus the chicken can be used for tacos!

1 bag boneless/skinless chicken breasts (frozen)
1 can Rotel
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can whole kernel corn (do not drain)
8 oz. cream cheese
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 onion (diced)

Stir ranch mix and taco seasoning into the cream of chicken soup, and pour over the frozen chicken.  Add all the other ingredients and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 5 hours.  (Basically just cook it until you don't need to cook it anymore.  I just put it on low until I get home from work, sometimes it's for 12 hours!)

When ready to serve, remove the chicken and shred with a fork.  (We reserve enough of this chicken to make tacos for our two youngest kids who do not like soup.)  Stir the soup mixture well, and add the shredded chicken.

Serve over crushed tortilla chips and top with shredded cheese.

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

...Football Season, that is!  I love football season, not so much because I'm crazy about the game, but because I always splurge and buy myself a new football t-shirt.  Sometimes I design it myself, sometimes I just order whatever the school is selling.  This year, though, I had one custom made, (by the fabulous ladies at Paris Glam), just for me. 

After being Coach's #1 fan for SEVENTEEN (!) seasons, I do believe this is the cutest shirt I've ever had!!  With Coach on the field, and Mitchell playing on the varsity team, I needed a shirt so that I could rep both of my guys.  I personally think it is to die for!  

What did I tell you???  Cuteness on cotton!

Welcome back...

It's was officially announced today that Marvin Sedberry, Sr. is the new Head Football Coach and Athletic Director at GHS.  This is Coach Sedberry's third stint here in "tha G,"  and I, for one, am excited to have him back! 

As a die-hard Greenville Lions fan, it is great to have a coach who has had a winning track record with our team BACK with our team.  Coach Sedberry has taken the Lions to the playoffs many, many times in the past, and I am ready to go there again!

As a coach's wife, (more specifically as COACH WHEAT's wife), I welcome Coach Sedberry back with open arms.  After all, he is the man who originally hired Jeff as a Lion coach way back in '94.  I have always thought very highly of Coach Sedberry; he is a man of integrity, and a good role model for our young (and not-so-young [read: Coaches]) men.  I know that Jeff has always admired him, and with good reason.

As an athlete's mom, (more specifically as MITCHELL WHEAT's mom), I think it is so cool that Mitchell will be playing ball for Coach Sedberry.  After all, he was the head coach at GHS when Mitchell was born.  I used to tote that child up to the top of the bleachers in a baby-backpack (NOT an easy task, I assure you) quite frequently on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights.  This hiring makes me feel like everything has come full-circle.

Welcome back, Coach Sedberry.  Welcome home.
