    Spaghetti sauce in a crockpot or on the stovetop; vegetable based soups (cut up any and all veggies you have, throw them all in a pot and let them boil. Once soft, mash/blend them all together); chili; pulled pork (get a tenderloin into the crockpot with your favorite BBQ sauce and let it go. Once it's cooked, pull it apart and serve with rice and a bag frozen veggies)

    Delicious! We don't add relish.

    Six Sisters' Stuff: Slow Cooker Freezer Meals: Make 8 Meals in 1 Hour!

    I love their website! I've tried both the french dip (twice) and the pork ribs (twice) and they came out fabulous every time. Plus the french dip came out with a solid amount of leftovers.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb

    Double up on some tinfoil add a little bit of olive oil. Cut a chicken breast in half and put it in the tinfoil . Cut up a potato and add it to the chicken . Sprinkle with blackening seasoning, lemon pepper, salt and pepper if you like and bake for almost 30 mins at 400 degrees. Microwave a steam bag of veggies! Full meal in 30 minutes with little clean up.

    -Fried rice.
    -Buffalo Fish Sliders. I use the Gorton's beer battered fish patties, cook them, dip them in Frank's Red Hot Wing sauce (Not regular!), put them on buns with tartar sauce, cole slaw, cheese, etc.

    -Crockpot chicken tacos. Recipe is all over Pinterest, but it is really easy.
    Put chicken breasts in crockpot with a jar of salsa, a packet of taco seasoning, cook on low all day. Shred the chicken, make tacos!
    I change up the original recipe though. I use a small can of spicy tomato sauce (Called El Pato), and a can of diced tomatoes, and some salsa if I have it. I also use Trader Joe's taco seasoning since it doesn't have as many bad chemicals, packet is good for wayyyyy more than one recipe, definitely don't need even half of it. I only put half of the tomato sauce and half of the tomatoes in the crockpot. I keep the rest for later and make mexican rice with it.

    I LOVE the crockpot taco recipe! I make it all the time, it makes enough for several days. I use chicken thighs rather than breasts because they tend to shred better for me and they're less expensive.

    I forgot to add something else I do with them!

    I also add some beans, black, pinto, mixed, whatever.

    I've been planning to make tortilla soup with the leftovers, but have never gotten around to it.
