We usually all get home around 5:45, and our son typically wants to eat by 6:00 pm which leaves a whooping ~10 minutes to get food together after shoes are off, cars unloaded, etc.
Crockpot meals are great for cooking while you’re away and being almost ready to serve when you finally arrive. Yet I find them, especially meats, are a challenging one for me because everything ends up so similar in texture. Also, the ones where you precook elements or it cooks in three hours would definitely have to be regulated to weekend only meals. This one stood out in terms of flavor and easiness to prepare, and we’ve already made it twice in about two weeks!
