Welcome to Write 31 – 2016

Welcome to 31 Days of Slow Cooking



Right now, I’m feeding not only my family but also my mom.  Since I get home at 4:30 and dinner needs to be on the table for Hubby between 5 and 5:10, the easiest way to cook dinner is by cooking it in the slow cooker.  I know that we are going to have a healthy meal.  The majority of the meals if not all of them will not have any cream of whatever soup in them.

Now if I could only get my 13 year old from being so picky about what he eats, the slow cooking process for our dinners would be perfect.  However, there are many times he ends up eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead of what we eat.  (He has food aversions which can be difficult to work around.  When it’s something I know he won’t eat, I’ll tell him to make the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I do have him eat deconstructed meals at time.  Or I have him eat what I cooked.  It all depends.)

Any who, I’m going to be sharing recipes and tips and tricks for the slow cooker throughout the month of October 2016.  This is my second year participating in the Write 31.  Last year, I had so much fun with sharing slow cooker recipes so I’m doing it for a second time.

Also during October, I’m going to be preparing the majority of my meals using the slow cooker.  I find that October is a busy time for us so it’s a good time to pull out the slow cooker.

Disclaimer:  We’ve tested out the recipes prior to the month.  So not only am I going to share the recipes, I’ll be sharing throughout October.

Here is a list of the recipes and other blog posts for this month:
