Chicken Slow Cooker Meals for Your Freezer

This post contains affiliate links.

It’s time for back to school, which means days get shorter and filled with more running around. Back to school time also means fall is just around the corner! Although we use our slow cooker all year, I know many use it more during the fall and winter. Here are a few of our favorite chicken dishes that are meant to go from the freezer to your slow cooker.

I love meals that I can prep, freeze, and dump right into the slow cooker. I spend the day chasing around two little boys and dinner sometimes slips my mind. With these meals stocked in our freezer, I can pull one out and put it in the slow cooker without thinking about dinner the rest of the day!

Hungry for Happiness mobile tour in Baltimore 8/20

I received a gift card for sharing this event information as well as one to giveaway.

School is starting back soon, but the Hungry for Happiness mobile tour is still going!

The tour was just in Philadelphia last week and now it’s coming to Baltimore! Since I’m located right between the two, they’re both local for us! That also means another giveaway for you!

In Maryland, almost half-a-million individuals have reported food insecurity, or the inability to consistently access food. That means nearly 1 in 8 people experience hunger, and for children, that figure increases to 1 in 6. The Arby’s Foundation, the charitable arm of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc., in partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, is committed to helping kids get the food they need.

Books to Read Before Starting Preschool

Last night I went to a meeting at Charlie’s Preschool. I think he’ll be good to go and he’s super excited already. When I was working, Charlie went to daycare about once a month during the school year and once a week during the summer. He loved it and I know he’ll love going to preschool. Preschool for Charlie will be 2.5 hours a day twice a week. Although it’s not a daily thing, it’s definitely going to be a big change for him to have a schedule now.

Before preschool starts, we’re checking out some of these books to help with the change and prepare for preschool to start.

Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash

The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

I like to start my day with a shower. If I don’t shower first thing in the morning, I feel like the whole day is thrown off. Showering in the middle of the day? I suggest locking the kids out and taking a couple minutes to yourself.

With Dial’s new Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash, I felt like I was away at the beach!

Coconut water is the leading trend known to be rich in antioxidants and electrolytes that help provide replenishing hydration. Running around after kids all day, I definitely need to treat myself and keep my skin healthy. Mango is known for being nutrient rich and adds a touch of tropical freshness!
