I really thought they started school early here until I found out that some kids actually start back this week! On that note, it's the perfect time to share easy meal ideas. Don't you think? One of my most reliable tricks to having a good meal prepared at night is by using my slow cooker. We've been eating sweet potatoes in a variety of ways recently and I'd been wanting to finally try them in slow cooker. Yum! This is a sponsored post about Country Crock's new Simple Recipe, all opinions are my own.
It always makes me giggle when I think about how a SLOW cooker can help me prepare a QUICK dinner. But, the magic is tossing in ingredients and then setting and forgetting. Dinner is ready with minimal effort. Another benefit that I've always adored is that you can make flavor packed foods without extra calories because when foods are slow cooked, they keep moisture and the flavors really pop.
Now, what's a sweet potato without some butter or margarine melted over top?
That's where the new Country Crock Simple Recipe (available at Kroger) comes in.
