Keep these slow-cooker soup and sandwich duos in your back pocket to make cold-weather dinner planning a walk in the (snow-covered) park.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Chicken-Corn Chowder
Sandwich: Club Sandwich Skewers
Why it works: The rich flavors of sherry, cream cheese and chiles elevate this chicken-corn chowder to soul-warming status. Offering a traditional club in skewer form on the side makes the stacked sandwich easier for little mouths to eat.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Vegetable Minestrone
Sandwich: Chicken Muffuletta
Why it works: This pairing combines two Italian classics: minestrone soup and a muffuletta sandwich. Piled high with texture and layers, this chicken sandwich is the star, and the veggie-packed, tomato-based minestrone is the perfect accompaniment.
