When life gets busy, turn on your slow cooker! At least that’s my motto. And right now, things couldn’t be busier. With baseball season in full swing, I’m playing chauffeur to two active boys four days a week.
My guess is … I’m probably not alone. It’s a common challenge of moms everywhere – how to get a healthy dinner on the table when time is short, and often our patience for cooking is too?
That’s why I love the slow cooker! It’s a simple way to ensure you get a healthy home-cooked meal on the table, even on the busiest of days. This is especially true if you take the time to meal plan and schedule a little time to prep ahead.
Knowing that our lives are a little jam-packed right now, I’ve been scheduling a lot more slow cooker meals in my weekly meal plans. In fact, I’ve gathered so many easy and tasty weeknight slow cooker recipes, I thought it would be fun to share them with you, as I’m confident you’re just as busy too.
