I’ve been loving the rhythm we’ve added to our dinners lately. Giving each weekday a theme makes it so much easier to meal plan and prep.
It also adds great predictably for our children. Slow Cooker Saturday has surprisingly become one of their faves.

I never thought my toddlers would eat soup, let alone beg for seconds. But getting their little hands involved, which is super easy with dump and set crock pot dinners, has them so intrigued and excited to sample the outcomes!
Today’s Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice soup was a hit. It was warm, full of comfort, and filling. And bonus that for us, there was plenty left to freeze for in case of emergency dinner nights (ie. momma forgot to defrost the chicken again).
I paired it with a stellar and so simple crusty Italian bread. This bread was PERFECT for soup. So easy to make, only four ingredients, quick rising, and no knead.
And being only my second attempt at bread ever, I’d say it turned out pretty amazing. I took the original recipe and chose to infuse it with basil and parsley for an earthy vibe.
