I am a HUGE advocate of parents being involved in their children’s schools. I am a member of the PTO and I am usually the homeroom mom if not a helper and I love to help the school in getting donations for school.
Last year I missed more than I wanted dealing with my divorce but this year, with two of my three daughter’s in Elementary School, it will be hard to miss me!
More than being a part of the culture of mom’s who annoy their school by being there all the time – like that would stop me – I like to do my part in raising money for them too, as I mentioned. But I don’t have a ton to give freely so I love programs like Tyson’s Back to School Project A+ Program that allows me to give back just from purchasing products I would buy anyway.
The program is extremely easy to sign up for. I just went to the Tyson Project A+ website, entered my school’s phone number and address and entered my registrars name as the contact person. I put me in as the coordinator as I would like to pick up the donated labels at the school and make sure they are turned in for the donations.
Now that my school is registered they can take labels and get $0.24 per label turned in. Since there are over 30 Tyson products participating in this project, it will be super easy to find one you love and benefit your school with a simple cut out from the bag.
You can see my entire shop and sign up for Project A+ and my awesome recipe below in my Google + Story:
My kids have been gone since I bought these new, specially marked bags but now that they are home, I will be collecting clippings like mad! I will have a big envelope to take to my school on the first day of school and I am so excited about that!
Aside from the obvious benefits to my kid’s school, Tyson products have such variety that they help me create fast, delicious meals for me and my family. And I think you would be surprised at how many delicious things that you can make with these products.
As I walked the aisles of Walmart I passed the awesome bread bowls, chicken nuggets my kids love, and the grilled chicken strips and chunks that I love to throw in with pasta and salads for a protein kick.
But when I saw the bag of Sweet Asian Chicken Thighs, I knew I had a super fast, ultimately delicious, recipe in my future! I immediately thought of stir fry. I mean, come on, Sweet Asian Chicken Stir Fry has to be delicious, right?
I got home, pulled everything out for my dinner that night and went to work. Not that this recipe is really work, to be honest!
Sweet Asian Chicken Stir Fry
3 – 4 Tyson Sweet Asian Chicken Thighs
Bag of Stir Fry Vegetables
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
Splash of Soy Sauce
Add the oil to pan, toss in the cubed chicken thighs, add the bag of vegetables and let sit, covered, for 8 -10 minutes! Put it on a plate, add a splash of the soy sauce and enjoy!
I told you it was easy!
And you will be completely impressed with how incredibly delicious this turned out with very little effort. I am so ready for dinner time so I can have my leftovers. The chicken is tender, flavorful and high quality!
I love creating delicious, easy meals for me and my family. And I love that products I use to do just that also benefit my children’s school. Be sure to sign up your school for Tyson’s Project A+ program and make a note to stock up for Back to School now and clip those labels!
