Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken 5 Ways

I am a combination of a stay-at-home mom mixed with a 12-hour-shift-working nurse. I stay home with my kids on week days, and work 1-2 weekend days a week. Whether I am at home or working, I like having the option to have a quick and easy, but delicious lunch ready to go in minutes. One way to make my life much easier is to meal prep protein to have throughout the week. My only problem with meal prepping is that I hate to eat the same thing over and over every day. I have found an easy solution to have the best of both worlds.

Easy Strawberry Freezer Jam

I can’t really think of anything I enjoy more in the morning besides some wheat toast, butter & sweet strawberry freezer jam. My kiddo loves the jam on a sandwich with nutella. My grandma would make it all the time and it was a special treat growing up. It wasn’t until recently, after craving it, that I decided to look up the recipe. After reading pages and pages of different methods, I went with the easiest recipe that took the least amount of time. Did I mention it requires 4 things? The main thing here is Sure Jell Pectin. You can find it at any store but I actually found it at our Super Walmart.

Dr. Seuss Inspired Birthday Treats

The beloved author Dr. Seuss has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid and I love that in school it is still a celebration of all things Seussical! As a way to celebrate I try to come up with a craft or snack that will be fun and go with our favorite stories. This year I went with the classic Cat in the Hat and the Lorax for easy inspirational desserts.

Asian-Style Pork and Noodles

Orange juice, hoisin sauce, and cider vinegar give this pasta its sweet-and-sour flavor. The vegetables are quickly cooked so they stay crisp. You can use almost any type of noodle in this dish, including traditional Asian noodles such as udon, available in specialty shops and many supermarkets.
