I think going back to school is an even crazier time of year than Christmas in our house! We’re trying to squeeze in the last days of summer fun but also trying to get the kids ready for school and back into a routine. aaaahhhhgh! And back to routine for me means back to cooking dinners. aaaahhhhgh! I did cook a little bit this summer but honestly, not a lot. Grilling and eating out was big for us. So I gathered up some good crock pot recipes to make my life – and hopefully yours – a bit easier. They’re all easy dinners that are also yummy. Click on the links below for the full recipes and try them yourself. I’d love to hear your feedback.
Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef from Creme de la Crumb – perfect as is and a lot healthier than the take-out option!
Hoppin’ John from Oxmoor House – this makes a great side dish, which I’m always looking for. I used long grain rice (not instant) versus the converted and it worked great.
Spicy Chicken Stew also from Oxmoor House – loved this!! And it’s not very spicy, I used mild salsa and not a lot of chili powder or cumin.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork from Good Housekeeping – I had all the ingredients for this one and it’s so easy and yummy. My kids love this one and makes great leftovers!
Good luck getting back into the school routine and please share any new easy recipes you have!
