We all have those days – work late, ball practice, errands – and it’s so tempting to go through the drive through or stop for pizza to make dinner simple. But with a slow cooker and a little thinking ahead, you can save!
When you know that you’re going to be later getting home than usual and not feel like cooking dinner, put dinner in the slow cooker that morning so you won’t be tempted to spend more grabbing something quick andk convenient.
Slow cooker dinners don’t have to be elaborate either. Put some ground beef or turkey in the slow cooker in the morning and by dinner time, you’ll have meat ready for spaghetti, tacos or sloppy joes. Cook chicken breasts in the slow cooker and serve them over rice and topped with salsa. Or chicken drumsticks covered in BBQ sauce cooked in the slow cooker means BBQ chicken by dinner time.
So don’t forget, plan ahead to save!
