18 Easy Autumn Crock-Pot Meals for Busy New Moms & Dads!

I absolutely love the coming of fall for 3 reasons. One, being that I get to dig out and wear my favourite boots. Two, the beauty and splendour of the season. And three, harvest and digging into some serious cooking. (I just try to ignore that it means winter is up next. Because, blech=winter.)

My right hand in all of this cooking? My Crock-Pot of course. Just because I work from home doesn’t mean I have the time every day to spend a couple of hours (or even one) in the kitchen prepping and cooking dinner for my family. I actually enjoy waking up a little early, before the the rest of the house and the madness of the full-on morning routine enters in, to quickly prep a Crock-Pot meal and turn it on to slow cook all day.

Come 3:30, I look at the clock and smile because I know I can continue to motor on through work and not break to begin dinner. It’s in the little things. For those of you who work outside of the home and hate compromising on nutrition, the Crock-Pot is your friend, I tell ya — slow cooking a large chicken and and roast beef once a week will give you enough leftovers for another dinner, lunch meat, and bone broths. Crock-Pots are every family’s necessity, I am sure of it. Especially during the hustle and bustle that comes with this time of year.
