Whoever invented the slow cooker should be held in high esteem, right up there with the inventor of the Ziploc bag.
You can make your slow cooker work even harder for you by choosing the perfect recipe to coordinate with your day. What do I mean by that?
Well, some days you may only have 5 minutes to throw food into the slow cooker.
Some days, you need the recipe to cook all day long. Not every meal will hold up to that.
And some days, not only will you not be home to cook dinner, but some members of the family will need to eat before you get home. I’ve found on nights when Jim or the older kids are going to have to fix it themselves, it needs to be ready to go. No veggies or rice or pasta to cook to go with it. It’s got to be simple and done.
With all of that in mind, here’s a list of meals to fit each category. If you want to check out all the slow cooker meals on my site, click the recipe box at the top of the page.
