It’s back to school time! That means back to life, back to reality. It also means back to schedules and back after school activities. Back to soccer, library, cub scouts, football, homework… I could go on and on! Sometimes making dinner happen with all the craziness is hard.
For me the very best way to make dinner happen is to prepare it NOT in the dinner time hour.
That’s why the slow cooker is, by far, my best friend in the kitchen. I can prepare dinner while I’m cleaning up the breakfast dishes. Then, when it comes time to fit in dinner between the comings and goings, it’s not impossible! Dinner stays warm in the Crockpot so if my kids and husband need to eat dinner at different times, it works.
Here are my favourite back to school slow cooker recipes that my whole family loves. Check them out in the slideshow.
