My husband works 2nd shift, so we eat our big family meal at lunchtime. Unfortunately that means we have to stop in the middle of school work for me to cook a meal, eat, and clean up. The easiest way to get a wholesome meal ready, with the least amount of disruption to our school day, is to use the crockpot for soups, chili or baked macaroni.
If I know we’ll be leaving the house early, and gone all day, I’ll put out the crockpot at bedtime and pop a breakfast meal in. A long day out of the house goes so much better with a real meal in the tummy.
Sundays, are another day that can be a challenge for meal time. By the time we get home from church everyone’s starving. I typically put dinner (or a large portion of it) in the the crockpot when I first get up on Sunday morning. This makes my Sunday a lot more restful, and a lot less stressful.
Here is a listing a few of my favorite crockpot recipes.
