The week that the slow cooker came out

slow cooker

This is the first meal plan that I have done for a couple of weeks as I have been really busy. Planning seems to have gone out of the window a little so now the slow cooker is coming out!

Every so often when I slip up and start to get out of the habits that save me money, I have to reign it back in again and start back at basics. This makes life easier and more balanced.

When I don’t plan, I notice that I eat worse and feel less organised.

This week I plan to use my slow cooker several times as with busy lives we can just get in and eat rather than having to cook too much after work.

 Day  Lunch Dinner
Saturday KFC Ricebox Italian ready meal
Sunday Pizza Buffet at Scarefest Jacket Potato
Monday Homemade Salad Box Roast Dinner
Tuesday Homemade Salad Box Beef Stew & Mash
Wednesday Noodle Pot Chilli & Rice
Thursday Raw Vegetables & Chicken Pulled Pork & sweet potato fries
Friday Salad or Sandwich So juicy Chicken & New potatoes

Mines literally just come out this week too – I LOVE my slow cooker, so easy when you have a large family and can be so much cheaper.

This is so true planning keeps you organised and not just pick anything that comes on the way… this applied in the kitchen and every walk of life. Well your list is a great one.

I’m loving the slow cooker at the moment! Also, you’ve just reminded me that I really like those so juicy ‘sets’.

Thanks for linking up x

You know it is winter when the slow cooker comes out!Your meal plan sounds lovely! great idea


I cook in my slow cooker all the time. I make a lot of crockpot meals like turkey chili, whole chickens, split pea soup, shredded BBQ chicken, and pot roast.

I do not have a slow cooker but I would love to get one. Your reviews are great about it.

I love slow cooker and I always use it! Like you, I always try to plan what’s for the meal since it takes time preparing. 🙂

Karen Monica

Your meal plan sounds great. It does take a lot of time to prepare meals especially when you have a busy schedule.

I am a big slow cooker fan. When Autumn comes around my cooker is out making stews and casseroles. It is such a quick and easy way to cook

Meal plans are definitely well worth the small effort. I do them professionally, and it makes a huge difference when I practise what I preach!


Planning ahead is close to my superpower as well as slow cooker recipes. In my household my husband normally cooks on daily (sort of) basis but when I cook I only do the slow cooker versions.

Looks like you have some pretty great meals from the slow cooker. I am always looking for more ways to use it more effectively. These would be delicious.


Wow this is very good idea. Meal planning is the way forward when you have a busy schedule!
