This week, my husband and I will officially be “empty-nesters”. While I am still not sure how I feel about all this, I have a busy week ahead and need easy dinner ideas like these Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches. We will be moving AJ into his dorm to start his freshman year of college at the end of this week.

Say what!? I am ok ( at least I keep telling myself that).

The good thing is he is only one hour away. And while I know he will spread his wings and fly, at least it is not five hours away as when Gabby headed off to Boston. Anyway, this week will be hectic with organizing the kid who is never organized and balancing farm life. So quick and easy meals are on tap. Give these pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches a try. They are easy, delicious and one of my favorite go-to family meals.
