How many times have you been hard at work all day, busy with the kids and housework, only to look down and see the clock roll over to 5:00pm? It used to happen to me all the time before I began doing a Weekly Meal Plan. But what do you put on that Meal Plan?? Well, once I again I have perused Pinterest and found some quick and easy meals to make while you’re preparing for that Big Holiday Meal. ENJOY!!!!

Slow Cooker Meals – What Mom doesn’t love her slow cooker? Oh who am I kidding, you don’t have to be a Mom to enjoy your slow cooker! Isn’t it just one of the BEST kitchen appliances? I just love using mine during those hot, squelching summer months, but it comes in quite handy on those busy days of holiday meal preparation too! Here’s a few of my favorites:

Lemon Chicken

Sweet Pineapple Chicken

Honey-Sauced Chicken

Barbecue Chicken

Stroganoff with Cream Cheese

Chicken Enchilada Soup

French Onion Soup
