Even though it is summer it seems like things have been crazier than ever and getting dinner ready can be a challenge some nights. Swim team practice and swim lessons in the evenings means we aren’t getting home till dinner and after setting on a pool deck in 105 degree weather the last thing I want to do is make dinner. That is why I love my crockpot, get everything ready in the morning and come home to dinner cooked in the evening. Also great in the summer because it doesn’t heat up your house like the stove or oven do.
Now our family has lots of favorite Crock Pot meals like Crock Pot Beef Pot Roast, Crock Pot Black Bean and Corn Chicken, and Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich’s. Sometimes you need something new and something even easier than the others. That is why I was super excited to find this recipe over at Favorite Family Recipes. It only has 3 ingredients if you don’t count water and it was so easy I think my 7 year old could of pulled together dinner. Whip up some of The Pioneer Woman’s Mashed potatoes and dinner is served!
