The holiday season is here and there’s a small chill in the air. If I had to pick a theme for this week’s menu it would definitely be cozy, slow cooker meals. I’ve got a couple slow cooker meals on the menu and even a pressure cooker meal that looks deliciously cozy. I’m also sharing my new favorite snack.
Slowing down with Slow Cooker Meals
Cool, crisp weather just begs for warm cozy slow cooked meals. Another great thing about using the slow cooker is the fact that it frees up your time during the busy holiday season.
One of the things I’m trying to do this season is eliminate things that make time go by too fast. These past few months have flown by and I just want time to slow down. I want to enjoy the holiday season and not have it rush by in a blur. So I’m trying to do less stuff. That includes mindlessly scrolling through social media. I set aside a small amount of time everyday to look at social media. Outside of that time I’m putting my phone down. If we’re sitting down to watch a holiday movie, I just want to watch & enjoy the movie and my family.
I’ve included links to the recipes. You can also find them on my Pinterest board.
New Favorite Snack
I have discovered a new favorite snack that is simple & healthy. Avocado with cilantro and chips. Simply mash avocado with a fork. Add chopped cilantro and a sprinkle of salt. The avocado is filled with healthy fats that are good for you and will fill you up. For an even healthier snack use baked chips instead of regular.
