School’s back in session. So far we’ve been on-time every day, with our books and lunches and instruments and everything the kids need for the day. We’ve been getting to bed mostly on-time, and eating dinner…well, almost always mostly on-time.
I’m basking in the back-to-school glow, because by next Monday we’ll have gone off the rails. The kids will be climbing into the car half-dressed, carrying hairbrushes and unsigned permission slips, and I’ll have to turn around at least once to retrieve a forgotten trumpet.
With the busier days, it’s even more important for me to plan dinner ahead of time. By the time we get home from after-school activities, and I’ve helped with homework, it can get pretty late. Some slow cooker recipes and a few minutes of prep time in the morning can change our whole evening. It’s a beautiful thing.
So here are nine slow cooker recipes. Nine meals you can set and forget in the morning, and enjoy that night for dinner with minimal fuss. Because you’re that sort of prepared person. Good for you. You got this.

-Best Ever Beef Stew from Mrs. Happy Homemaker
-Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie from Better Homes and Gardens
