I like to take the day off on Sundays, but since the whole family is home, it’s nice to have a home-cooked meal together. The crock pot is the perfect solution to enjoying a relaxing day and still having a satisfying meal to share at the end! Enjoy this sponsored collection of Slow Cooker meals (as always, thoughts and opinions are my own!).
I love Sundays because they are entirely different from every other day of the week. Instead of working all day, we go to church. And instead of running all over the place to practices and lessons in the evenings, we hang out at home. Together. Sunday is a family day.
I know a lot of people for whom Sunday also means a big, fancy, home-cooked meal. After I became a mom, as much as I liked the idea of making an elaborate dinner to eat together on Sunday evenings, the idea of coming home from church to spend 2 hours of my “day of rest” in the kitchen was NOT appealing. Those big, fancy Sunday dinners didn’t really catch on once I was in charge.
Luckily, I’ve found a way to avoid Sunday afternoon burn-out in the kitchen while still enjoying Sunday dinners together. I call it Slow Cooker Sunday.
With Slow Cooker Sunday recipes, I can throw something in the crock pot in the morning before I’m worn out from the day. Then the meal is ready for us as soon as we’re done with church. We still get the benefit of having a nice Sunday dinner together as a family, but I don’t have to spend Sunday afternoons in the kitchen. I get my day of rest and my big meal. Bonus!
I’ve collected some of my personal favorite crock pot meals as well as a few more that look so delicious that I am adding them to my meal plan for the next several Sundays.
What are some of your favorite slow cooker meals? Which recipes in my Slow Cooker Sunday collection are you excited to try?
