I love my crock pot! A crock pot is a busy mom's best friend! The crock pot forces me to plan out dinner. I can think about it and start chopping my vegetables the night before, or early in the morning after my son gets on the bus. I love the simplicity of it - throw everything in one pot and your done. This has give me so much more free time in the afternoon to help with homework, play with the kids and I actually manged to have a phone conversation yesterday!
This week is Crock pot Week in our house! I am on day three of using it for dinner, making a different recipe each day:
Monday was Vegetable Soup, I served this with biscuits
Tuesday was Sausage and Peppers, I served this with a side dishes of pasta and broccoli
Wednesday is Turkey Meatloaf
This is my first time making a meatloaf in the crock pot. I will be sure to let you know how it comes out! I reviewed several recipes on the Internet and modified it with my own famous meatloaf recipe!
First I sprayed the crock pot with non stick cooking spray. At the bottom I layered my vegetables: baby carrots, sliced onions and sliced potatoes. I formed my meatloaf, put it on top of the veggies and I was done. One hour on high, 5 hours on low. By the time 6 o'clock rolls around I will have a complete meal. I will chop up some fruit for the kids, maybe make a small salad and dinner is served!
Please share your favorite crock pot recipes! I am always on the look out for new ones to try.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
