Summer is the perfect time to pull out the slow cooker. Not only will it free up your days to play with your kids and enjoy the weather, it is also a great way to cook without heating the house.
Slow cooker meals are also perfect for bringing to potlucks and we seem to get invited to more of those in the summer.
Personally, my favorite time-saver is to make freezer meals that can then go straight into the slow cooker! My neighbor and I get together every few months and make enough freezer meals to last us at least two months. We try to make many of them for the crock pot.
Here is a list of 25 slow cooker meals that would be great for feeding your family this summer:
