Back to School Crock pot Recipes

It’s THAT time of year again!  Back to School!

Like every summer, this one has gone all too quickly and it’s time to start school again.  

It doesn’t matter if you are a homeschooler or your children attend a traditional classroom, going back to school usually produces strong emotions from parents, teachers and students.  Whether it makes you happy or sad, there’s always a little bit of excitement.  

It also means getting back into a routine and often a busy schedule.  Sometimes we look forward to the structure…at least I know where everybody is supposed to be and when they are to be there.  And sometimes it produces stress….how am I going to get everybody where they are supposed to be when they are supposed to be there?  Often the biggest problem is DINNER.  With so many things for a mom to do, how is it possible to get a meal on the table?  So, what do we end up doing?  The Drive Thru…which can get expensive AND isn’t always the most healthy option.

Hopefully, this collection of Back to School Crock Pot Recipes will give you some easy recipes to make meals at home and take some of the stress out of dinner time.  A couple of the recipes are mine but most are from some sweet blogger friends that are allowing me to use their ideas…..THANKS!

    I love using my crock pot during the school months especially. There is so much to do after school so having a meal ready to go is so helpful!

    You are right. I homeschool my daughters and now with a little one in the mix, I’ve been thinking about meal planning a lot more. I don’t use a crock-pot, but I love that you encourage eating at home!
