My Fall routine goes something like this:

  • Store outdoor Summer toys and furniture {ok, I missed a few items, they are now buried in snow}
  • Store the Summer jackets and clothing to make way for the Winter gear {bah-humbug}
  • My slow cooker takes up a permeant spot on the counter {yay!}

There are few things I enjoy about the transition from Summer to Fall and Winter, yet at the top of my list is using the slow cooker more often. This handy sidekick is the highlight of the season and one of my all-time favourite small appliances. 

When cold winds blow there is nothing like comfort meals this time of year. Yet, said comfort meals generally take more time to prepare and cook yet we all know that we are not allotted more time in our day to accommodate.

My schedule is still as busy as ever, plus it takes more time to travel to activities in this season, so it’s almost like I have less time in my day.

Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potato Soup tastes just like a loaded baked potato - very rich, think and creamy. Heaven with each spoonful!

So, where does one find the solution to having those comfort foods in such a busy schedule?

That’s right, my best friend – the slow cooker.

So much can be said for having a meal ready for you, when you get home. Walking in the door to the aroma of dinner waiting for you – is something special {kinda like clean sheet day}. 

Favourite slow cooker meals are stews, chili, meats in sauce, slow cooker chicken and rich cheesy meals.

In fact, there is most likely a slow cooker recipe variation for any meal out there. Once you dig in, you’ll discover a whole world of possibilities when it comes to the convenience of this cooking method. 

I have a few soup recipes in my own ‘Recipe Box’ here on My Organized Chaos, yet I’m always wanting to add to that collection. There’s also a wonderful Creamy Chicken Stew as well. I do my best to keep you warm!
