|Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches|
It’s back to school season! I noticed school supply stuff popping up at Target immediately after the Fourth of July and most of my teacher friends are already back at it. I know how crazy this time of year gets. Long gone are the endless summer nights where you might finally come inside at 8 pm and decide some homegrown tomatoes and ice cream cones will suffice for dinner. It’s back to routine and schedules and family dinner.
Just because the rest of your life is getting more complicated, doesn’t mean dinner has to. This meal is so easy it’ll leave you plenty of time to help with homework, pick the kids up from soccer practice, and still make time for the host of new shows waiting on your DVR. It is simply a matter of throwing a few ingredients in your slow cooker, setting it on low, and then coming back at the end of the day when you’re ready to eat. Serve the meat in your bread / rolls of choice with a simple salad and dinner is served! Better yet, do as I did and make a bigger roast than you need and freeze the leftovers so all you have to do is thaw and reheat another night!
