Overnight, pot roast in a bag

overnight pot roast (5)overnight pot roast (4)

This recipe for pot roast is my new favorite. Because one, look at all those pretty veggies. Dreamy. And two, so yummy that even your pickiest eaters will love it.

But the best thing about this meal is that you just throw it all together the day before in a giant bag, and let it sit in the fridge over night. So the next day all you have to do is just dump it in your crockpot and voila! You are super mom. Because if you are like me, you yell at your kids all too often, and the days are sometimes rough, you just need one win. Let it be this easy meal friends. Come dinner time, you just butter some bread to go with it and enjoy your delicious hard work, because you are a rockstar for planning ahead.

Did I mention there is wine in the recipe? So just give your kids as many seconds as they want and voila! Early bedtime. Hashtag parenting advice. No I’m kidding I would probably never do that. The alcohol cooks out right?

  • 1 green pepper,sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 2 small onions, sliced
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut in strips (or steak)
  • 1 packet of your favorite taco/fajita seasoning

  • 1 cup water
Slice all the veggies and meat in long strips and place in the crock pot. Top with seasonings and water. Cook on low for 8 hours or until meat is tender. Top with sour cream, cheese, salsa, guacamole, or any of your favorite toppings!

We had my sister-in-law and her husband over for din din a few weekends ago and these were on the menu. They turned out really yummy. I was worried the veggies were going to be soggy after cooking in the crock all day (we like our veggies crunchy) but they weren’t at all! Will be trying this with steak next time, so good. The meat gets so tender from cooking so long on low.


Crock-pot italian shrimp & veggie pasta


You will need:

Combine all ingredients except for the shrimp in slow cooker. Cook on low for 5 hours or until veggies are tender. Add shrimp and cook on low an additional hour. Serve over pasta and top with parmesan cheese.

This was SO simple! I tripled the recipe so we would have left overs. Everyone in our family loved this recipe, although next time I would make it with chicken.


Crock pot cream cheese chicken over pasta



You will need:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet dry italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 package of noodles or rice

Mix boiling water with the chicken bouillon cube and pour into crock pot. Add the chicken breasts, then pour melted butter over chicken. Sprinkle dry italian seasoning packet over the chicken. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. 45 minutes before the chicken is done, mix the soup and cream cheese together. You may want to warm the cream cheese in the microwave to make the mixture more smooth. Add the mixture into the crock pot and continue cooking for 45 minutes. Serve over noodles or rice, garnish with chives.

This is a perfect family meal that everyone loves! This dish was super easy and as a bonus will make your house smell amazing all day while it is cooking! I steamed carrots and broccoli to go with it.
