Back-to-school means slowcooker meals

…at least around my house. Back to school means planning out dinners and lunches at least a few days (or a week) in advance. And often at least a couple are things that can be left all day in a slow cooker or prepared during nap time and then popped in the oven .

My toddlers will generally eat anything made with coconut milk, and even the reluctant among them can usually be convinced to eat a “wrap.” My 7 yr old its a harder sell.
But, I recently had great luck with both my boys eating butter chicken wraps while camping (also a success!).

So last night we tried a “Yellow Curry” Wrap.
Im going to say it was a solid success, which is to say most of us loved it and one of us (grudgingly) ate it to maintain their privileges, albeit without complaint, which is a success in and of itself.
Best part, 20 min prep and another 5min before serving. The rest is cook time, and is up to you.
