But being a full-time working mom with 3 boyz on 3 separate football teams, family meals are a rarity.
Enter Stage Left: the crockpot
the Relish! website (Subscribe for only $7 a month! And psst...there's a 20% off coupon code on my right sidebar!)
The website (it's mom-run!) is an easy to use meal-planning service for busy families. It helps you prepare healthy, creative meals every week. All you have to do is simply pick from great weekly recipes and then an organized grocery list is automatically created for you. Just hit the grocery store for 5 days worth of home-cooked meals!
Variations of the meals include freezer meals, vegetarian, super quick, simple gourmet and tons of kids faves that, most importantly, don't include the word NUGGET. Heh.
As a matter of fact, I'm trying this recipe from Relish! this week:
Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper BBQ Pork
3-4 pounds shoulder pork roast
18oz barbeque sauce
12oz bottle Dr. Pepper
Cook on low 8-10 hours in crockpot
I mean, seriously, how easy is that?!
The kind folks at Relish! would love to offer you your very own slow cooker (like the one pictured above)!
Simply leave me a comment (make sure your blog or your name is linked to a valid e-mail address, please) with your favorite meal to make in a crockpot.
