Do you like a good “dump it and forget it” meal? With school and sports and all the things starting up this month and next, I’m being jolted out of my summer “let’s just wing it in the kitchen” method of meal planning, which isn’t actually meal planning at all. We’ve been eating a lot of pizza, sandwiches and those rotisserie chickens from the grocery store. Crock pot meals are a busy mom’s salvation. This is a great and varied list – I hope you find a new fave.

With two kids in sports, that means practices, games, crazy schedules and lots of weeknight running around. Sometimes, that means eating our meals at different times, on the go or in a hurry. My kids are expending extra energy and it’s more important than ever for them to get a good, nutritious dinner but it’s also important for me to spend as little time as possible preparing it.

I’ve prepared this handy list of awesome crock pot meals for the sports mom in the interest of giving my fellow minivan driving, sports equipment carting warriors a list of go-to’s that fill the bellies, taste great and get you out of the kitchen and on to the sports fields in record time. Crock pot meals offer a simple meal solution for busy families and with the fall routine getting ready to go into full blast mode, we all need easy, right?
Also? Are the pictures of all this yummy-ness making your mouth water or what? No matter what your family’s taste buds, you’re sure to find several things on this list that will make your meal planning just a little easier.
As far as crock pots go, THIS is the one I use. However, THIS is the one I want. The “why” is a no-brainer. I know the pretty flowers aren’t going to make it function better…but I still really want it!
