Meal Plan Monday: Slow Cooker Time

Sharing is caring!

Calling all Slow Cooker Experts! Despite the heat, I love Arizona. This time a year I do a lot less cooking and a lot more assembling. I’m hoping to use my crock pot more so please fill me in on your favorite slow cooker recipes! All oven cooking will be reserved for the morning before it gets too hot. large fruit bowl

Salad and GF Pasta

I have to bring snacks to a meeting this week so I’m planning fresh fruit, veggies with hummus and the Best (Gluten-Free) Brownies in the Whole Wide World. This is the only time I plan to use the oven this week. If I’m feeling extra industrious I may bake some Gluten-Free Cherry Muffins too.

We have a few busy evenings this week but thankfully I already have some leftovers ready for quick meals.

What are your favorite slow cooker recipes?
