Crock Pot Meals for the Working Mom

Want some quick, easy meals you can leave in your slow cooker while you're at work? These are some delicious crock pot meals you'll love coming home to.

I don’t know how I would survive without my crock pot sometimes, he is like my second husband. He makes great food and always needs a good cleaning after a days work!

Seriously though, a crock pot can make a working mom’s life so much better. Your dinner is quite literally cooking while you work! Let it work for you, Mamma!

I’ve tried several different methodologies in saving time when it comes to preparing meals after a days work. Freezer cooking, while a great concept, has never really stuck for me. Instead, I tend to default to a few great recipes that everyone in the family loves.

The night before I take a few minutes to prep the meal and throw it in the crock pot. Here are a few of my favorite crock pot meals.
