I love my crock pot.  It’s perfect for the week ahead that is full of school concerts and parties!  These are easy to pour into a container for the fridge, and then put in the crock pot in the morning.  I chop a few heads of lettuce and store in a container covered in water, so that we can always have a salad if I don’t have time to make a side.  Here are a couple of my favorite quick and easy crock pot meals:

1. Roast with Carrots and Potatoes

Any cut of beef (I use London broil or a rump roast)
1 bottle tomato juice (16-24 oz)
Cut red potatoes and carrots
1 tsp. Garlic Salt

Makes a great one-pot dinner, and fantastic sandwiches for the next day!

2. Vegetable Soup
