Three Of My Favorite [easy] Recipes

Now that Campbell eats basically what we eat, I find myself having to meal plan for the week and cook a lot more than I used to. I've always enjoyed cooking but before Campbell came around, I can't even tell you how many times we opted for 'cheese platter night' as our dinner of choice. Or sometimes Scott and I would just skip dinner entirely if neither of us were hungry. Now I make a huge list and hit the store on Sundays. It's so much easier to shop for the entire week than to make multiple trips to the store. Plus it's just a stress relief to have it all planned out and done.
I've been searching and trying recipes on Pinterest a lot more than I used to and today I thought I would share some of my new dinner favorites. I'm all about easy and these recipes are just that.
I love this meal. It doesn't create a ton of dishes to clean up and it's seriously delicious. I add more chicken broth than the recipe calls for so it's more soup-y. Campbell enjoys the red beans and it's great protein for him! Click HERE for the recipe.
For the longest time I searched for a good, classic roast recipe but never found one that was just right--until this one! The crock pot is my new favorite way to cook and this meal is great for Campbell. I make it 2-3 times a month and it's so quick and easy. The link to the website is a little strange and I never can get it to work but you can find the ingredients HERE on my Pinterest page. You just mix it all together and throw it in the pot. I add carrots and forgo the orange because Scott is allergic to orange. I'm pretty sure it doesn't alter the taste one little bit. Sister Schubert rolls on the side make it extra delicious!
This isn't actually a meal that I feed Campbell but it's too good not to share! These BBQ chicken sandwiches are so yum and I typically always have the ingredients laying around my house so it's a good one to just throw together. It's nice that the cook time is only 3-4 hours instead of 7-8 like some crock pot meals. Sometimes I don't have enough time in my mornings to get something in the crock pot so this one gives you some grace time and lets you take care of it around lunch! Check it out HERE.

Do you have any amazingly, easy and delicious meals that are a staple in your family? If so, share them with me! I'm always up for new recipes!!!
