Sometimes, you just need a great slow cooker go-to meal. Something you can throw together quickly on those busy days and have ready for you when you’re done running around and you’re ready to eat. Or hell, sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking. And that’s okay. Because that’s where an awesome slow cooker meal, like these Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs and Red Potato Bowls come in.
Have you ever had a dish that you knew was probably easy, but for some reason you were intimated to make it? The first dish that comes to my mind that intimidates me is Shepherd’s Pie. Random fact, I’ve never actually even had shepherd’s pie. My parents never made it when I was growing up, it’s not something you can commonly order from a restaurant menu, and when I look at recipe for one I just get overwhelmed. The second dish? Chicken Pot Pie.
It’s Fri-YAY! And you guys…how are we already less than a week to Thanksgiving?! It’s crazy to think that we were just anticipating Halloween, and suddenly Thanksgiving is right on our heels.
Thankfully we never host Thanksgiving so I don’t have to plan, organize and cook for that, and I’m able to focus on these bowl meals and keeping on the healthy path.
We all have busy days; days when we don’t feel like cooking. But you don’t necessarily want to get yet another takeout pizza, and that’s where slow cookers come in handy! One of the most versatile things you can do with your slow cooker is throw some chicken or pork in, and use it in any number of meals.
These Hawaiian BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches are such a fun and easy way to have a delicious meal with little to no effort.
Another Sunday, another slow cooker recipe. It’s just SO EASY to use a slow cooker, and doing so this Sunday was fantastic because it allowed me to use the day to meal prep healthy ingredients for the upcoming week, as well as take the time to go through my kitchen; I was very lucky and received a number new saucepans, pots and skillets for Christmas, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to get rid of some tired, old things and make room for the new. So while I did all of that, my delicious dinner was cooking away, with zero hands-on maintenance.
Tis the season for slow cookers. When you’re feeling especially busy, or lazy, the slow cooker can be your best friend, and pork is one of the best things you can put into it and be creative. There are a thousand pulled pork recipes out there, and mine was one of convenience and using what I had, that turned out pretty damn good. A random Coors Light that was sitting in the fridge, lots of seasoning, some brown sugar I needed to use (because I rarely bake), and I don’t even need an excuse to use my Stubb’s BBQ Sauce.
