Simple Slow Cooker Meals for Any Time of Year
We all know slow cookers are perfect for cold weather meals like soup and stew, but did you know they are also ideal for those busy spring, summer, and fall days?
I might actually use my slow cooker more often in the warmer months, than in the winter! With sports, church events and just being out enjoying the weather, we often don’t walk in to the house till late afternoon.
Unfortunately it’s easy to grab take-out or stop for sandwiches and the evening just feels hectic. However, if I have dinner cooking in my slow cooker, the evening is more relaxed, and dinner is ready as soon as everyone is washed up and the table is set! That’s a win for this mom!
I hope you enjoy reading through a few of my favorites, and find a new meal or two to add to your weekly menu. There is no need to put these meals together and freeze ahead of time, but you can certainly adapt the recipes to freezer-to-slow-cooker, if it’s your thing. Personally I don’t mind taking a few minutes to throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning, after I’ve had my coffee of course!
These are ALL main dish recipes, so they can stand alone or go with a quick side. Some feature this casserole slow cooker, but it is not required.
