Last week we did a 1950s style menu. It was delicious and there was a lot of cooking involved. I actually enjoyed it and the guys LOVED the food. This week, however, I’m beginning my spring cleaning so something a little less labor intensive is in order. I’ve been asked for some slow cooker recipes so this seems like a good time for “Slow Cooker Recipe Week”.

Dee’s Menu: Slow Cooker Recipes
Red beans and rice is the traditional Monday dinner in Louisiana and a favorite of David’s. I’ll make the red beans in the slow cooker and rice in my rice cooker. Easy meal for a busy day!
- red beans
I’m going to be out of town. I offered to have something in the slow cooker for the guys but David said he’d rather just pick up something in town. He always helps me with the dishes and I think last week’s 1950s menu may have burned him out on dishwashing. 😉
- Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas
- flour tortillas
- sour cream, lettuce, tomato, hot sauce
- tortilla chips and salsa
- Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin with White Wine Butter Sauce (will share recipe soon)
- Amish noodles
- roasted asparagus
- tossed green salad
I think we’ll be going out for dinner. If not, there will likely be leftovers.
- Campfire Stew (slow cooker) – recipe to come later
I have a slow cooker which I’ve had for many years but I am loving my Instant Pot. Not only is it a pressure cooker but it can also be used as a slow cooker. The best part is that it also has a sauté feature so I can brown meat in it first then switch to slow cooker. That means one less pan to wash…always a good thing!
