For slow-cookers, pot roast is really easy.  I'm not sure what my mom uses to make the gravy or whatever, but it's just the roast, potatoes and carrots and probably some seasoning and it's really good and really easy!  Just put all the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and by dinner time it's ready.

Chicken Al A King

2 boxes of mac and cheese

2 cans chicken al a king( in the same aisle as the canned chili)

block sharp cheddar cheese( shred as much as you want, it melts better than the already shredded stuff)


Make mac and cheese according to packaged directions

add both cans of chicken al a king and mix together

place in 13x9 casserole dish

top with shredded sharp cheddar

bake in oven at 425 until cheese is melted and bubbly...any leftovers are wonderful for lunch the next day.


Burgers and a side

Hot Dogs and a side

Italian sausage subs with grilled peppers and onions(mushrooms too if you like)

Rotisserie chicken one night

chicken burritos using leftover chicken from night before

baked chicken sprayed with pam and seasoned with whatever seasoning you like

spaghetti with or without meat sauce

cream cheese chicken in the crock pot

sloppy joes made with ground turkey

thats all i got for now...CONGRATS on the new baby!!!

Pork shoulder roast:

1 3 or 4 lb pork shoulder roast

1 packet lipton onion soup mix

baby carrots

baby red potatoes

chicken stock

Place the potatoes and carrots on the bottom of the crock pot. Set the roast on top of them. Pour in about 1 cup or 1.5 cups of chicken broth (you want it about 1/3 of the way up the potatoes). Sprinkle the onion soup mix over the pork and the vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high 5-6 hours. It should be fall apart tender and SO flavorful when its done. Just serve it with some biscuits. If you have left over, its great for pulled pork sandwiches the next day!

Also I know there are crock pot groups on here with excellent recipes. Type crock pot recipes in the search and it should come up with some groups for you.
