This week's meal plan features (mostly) all dinners in the slow cooker. I'm finding that with a new born the only way I can get dinner on the table is by using my slow cooker, or pressure cooker feature on my Instant Pot. I'm not joking when I say this kitchen appliance has become a life saver for me. It really has made the difference between having dinner on the table or ordering take out.
