Thanks to a bit of meal planning and prep, you can have an easy, delicious slow cooker dinner on the table every night of the week.
We all know money doesn’t grow on trees, and neither does time. Despite our best laid plans, the moments always seems to slip through our busy little fingers, and before we know it, we glance at our smart phones and it’s already 5 o’clock.
On marathon days like these, coming home and having to scramble to figure out what’s for dinner, or diving into a multiple step recipe with a laundry list of ingredients, is pretty much the last thing we feel like doing.
But when you come home to a kitchen that smells like Ina Garten has breezed through and taken over cooking for Jeffrey all day—that’s just what the doctor ordered. And thanks to a little planning, meal prep, and a little CrockPot magic, it’s perfectly achievable.
Below are 15 ideas for making it happen, with these slow cooker recipe ideas for easy, breezy weeknight dinners.
