I LOVE quick and easy Crockpot dinners. I just started school, my kids just starting middle school and hubby working hard in his new job. So, I’m always in a look out for quick meals. In the months to come, I will be sharing a lot of quick dinner meals for the family, meatless meals for my husband and non-dairy meals for myself. Stay tuned on the look out for fun, tasty, yummy recipes. Let’s cook!

Here’s a video on what I used and how I did it. You can serve with rice or mashed potatoes! ENJOY!

If you read my blog regularly, then you’ll know that I’m not only a busy mom who tries to eat as healthy as possible. With three kids, this isn’t always easy, and like most moms I’m guilty of going for convenience foods every so often. However, when I want to plan a special meal for just my husband and I, I like to make more of an effort, with a three course meal complete with starter, main course made with wine (occasionally), dessert and a LOT of me!
