Is there any other Mama out there who is eager … counting down the DAYS … ready and excited for the the first day of school????
I swear, the angels will break out into the “Hallelujah Chorus” at 7:55 am on the day our school starts back.
Or, maybe that will just be me.
I’m ready for routine. Set mornings. Set bedtimes. Set daily schedule. Lazy summer days are good — I love them — until it gets too hot to do anything but look at each other and wish you had a popsicle in your hand.
The heat sets in and kids start bickering. And, once that starts, I know that we are all definitely over summer and ready for school.
Between working and being an after-school car service, it sometimes gets difficult to have the energy for cooking after a long school day. Thankfully, I’m not intimidated by my slow-cooker. I’m not one of those people who leaves that appliance boxed up. Goodness, no! It gets used weekly around here.
I lurve it and it’s my best friend.
In the slideshow below, you will find twenty of my favorite slow-cooker recipes for back to school — some of my own and some from others. The collection is a mix of a little bit of everything but one thing is definite: they are all family friendly and DELICIOUS!
