When you think of back to school do you get a little bit stressed out? Busy days, rushing the kids out the door, trying to think of what to make for dinner on top of the 1,000 things you have to get done in a day. I don’t even have kids in school yet and I get stressed out thinking about it! No worries–I am here to help you just a little bit!
As a busy, full-time working Mom I know that easy, quick meals and snacks are the key to a happy, healthy family (and Mom for that matter). I must admit at this point in my life I love my crockpot (I have two!!). Sundays are often spent throwing ingredients into my crockpot so weekly meals can cook away while I enjoy the day. Who doesn’t love an easy meal waiting for them when they get home? Or a delicious, healthy snack (my son’s favorite is crockpot applesauce) that you can pack in your child’s lunch?
Today I am sharing 35 back to school crockpot recipes that will hopefully make your life easier. A few of these are mine mixed in with wonderful recipes from some of my fellow food bloggers. Click the link to be taken to the recipe. Enjoy!
