    Default Fave Slow Cooker Meal that your Kids love

    Okay, so with DD starting school this year and the school pick-up and then all the craziness when we all get home, etc, etc.....I thought putting a meal together in the slow cooker in the morning may be the answer to my problems - so what is your kids favourite slow cooked meal (I will eat anything that they like)!

    Thank you in advance. x

    Ahhh I use the packet mix things as a base and then add extras.

    So chicken curry I use the packet mix for milk chicken curry but add garlic, curry powder chilli, capsicum, onion, peas and corm potaoe, sweet potatoe etc.

    Beef stroganoff i use mcormicks chuncky beef stroganoff mix x2 and add tinned tomatoes, peas corn, onion, capsicum, wosershire sauce, bbq sauce, tomatoe paste. sour cream

    Lamb shanks lamb shank packet mix, red wine, tinned tomatoes, peas corn, onion, capsicum, wosershire sauce, bbq sauce, tomatoe paste.

    With all of them i add peas and corn and mushrooms 1 hr before end. And always thicken sauce with corn flour mixed into some water before serving.

    Can add any vegies you have I often but in brocolli beans etc
