Are you ready to say goodbye to those lazy summer days and get back into the routine of school and homework and fall sports/activities? Well whether you’re ready or not it’s coming. Try cooking at least 2-3 times per week in your slow cooker and you’ll find that yourself feeling so much more on top of things. This slow cooker meal plan contains ideas for an entire month and I know you’ll find some family favorites.
Slow Cooker Meal Plan
I want you (and me) to make our lives just a bit easier. Let’s plan our meals. Or better yet, let me plan your meals for the next month. Crockpot meals can be made at a slower paced time of the day (cuz you know that 5-7 pm is definitely NOT a slow paced time of the day). Use this meal plan and the crockpot to get your life a little less lunatic. This meal plan uses a theme for each night of the week (just like The Food Nanny suggests). The themes are comfort foods, lettuce wraps or salads, Mexican, soups, sandwiches, and pasta. Feel free to switch the days and the recipes around however you like. I hope this is helpful to you. And make sure to tag your photos on instagram with the #365dayscrockpotblog hashtag so I can see what you’re making!!!

Which slow cooker do you use?
These days I typically use a 6 quart oval slow cooker made by Kitchen Aid. It is my favorite because it seems to cook low and slow and very evenly. If you’re curious and want to see which slow cooker I use the most and why you can view this video.

I have a 11/2 and a four quart but I know how to adapt the recipes. Thanks for doing this. I use my cookers all year. Made chicken ala king last week.
For most all of these recipes you could easily use your 4 quart! I love my 3 quart and use it often. Good luck!
Thank you for this! It is still really hot here so I have made it my plan not to use the oven very much and this will help.
Oh good! Glad to hear that!

This line up looks absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for putting this all together. Does it matter if I don't have the casserole slow cooker for some of the recipes?
