With baby no. 2 arriving in a matter of weeks, I’m starting to get everything here at home as organised as possible (nesting is in full swing everyone!) That includes planning and cooking some freezer friendly meals in advance, as I remember from first time round with a newborn Finlay, how much we appreciated having a small supply of dinners all cooked and ready for us. You simply don’t have the energy in those early sleep-deprived days to cook in the evenings, but now that we have a toddler in the mix I’m feeling the pressure to make sure we still eat decent meals.
After spying this blog post on Hello Natural Blog, I’ve been looking into buying a slow cooker! The more I read about them the more I’ve started to question why we haven’t invested in one sooner? They seem so practical and handy for families! I’m planning on ordering this model from Amazon, as it seems to get hundreds of good reviews and won’t break the bank either. Below are some of the recipes I can’t wait to try!
1. Banana Nut Oatmeal
2. Carrot Cake Oatmeal
3. Sweet & Tangy Chicken
4. Moo Shu Pork
5. Chicken Curry
6. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork With Apples & Onions
7. Asian BBQ Pork
8. Beef & Broccoli Take-Out Fake Out
9. Butternut Squash & Parsnip Soup
10. Pomegranate Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
11. Slow Cooker Chilli
12. Meatballs and Tomato Cream Sauce
13. Creamy Coriander Lime Chicken
And because I had no idea you could make these in a slow cooker….
14. Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pumpkin Latte
15. Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
