New School Year

I know it’s kind of hard to start thinking about the first day of the new school year, but it will be here before you realize it. It’s been a long time since my children were in school, but I still remember the chaos…buying school supplies, new school clothes and shoes, etc. Like I stated before, I never thought about meal planning back then. That’s why I think summer (at least the month before) is the best time to start thinking about your family’s meals for the first couple of months of the new school year.

I find that slow cookers are the best. You just put everything in, set the timer, and then go about your “business”. The hardest part of meal planning is trying to figure out what meals to prepare that your family would eat.

In this post I’m going to give you some ideas. You can find the recipes under my “Recipe” tab at the top of this page.


Tex-Mex Mac & Cheese Skillet

Green Salad

Garlic Toast


Chicken Tortilla Soup

Tex-Mex-Style Green Salad


Slow Cooker Burrito Bowls

Steamed Rice


Chicken Taco Salad

Fruit Salad


Slow-Cooker Pork Carnitas

Pork Posole


Teriyaki Salmon Stir Fry

Steamed Rice


Slow-Cooked Onion Bacon Sloppy Joes

Sweet Potato Fries


Rustic Chicken Soup

Garden Salad with French or Ranch Dressing

Crusty Bread

With these recipes, you can have about two weeks’ worth of meals ready in your freezer. All you’ll have to do is take one out the day before (this is the step that I always seem to forget, ha ha) so it will have a chance to thaw out enough to put into your slow cooker.
