Easy Crockpot Meals for Back to School

Most of the easy crockpot meals we make give us leftovers, so I like to pack them for lunch for my three kids. We use the Thermos Funtainer Food Jars for keeping foods warm in their lunchboxes, and they last forever!

The Funtainers we have are 6+ years old and still going strong. We just reheat last night's dinner in the microwave, load up the Thermoses, and lunch is ready to go.
