Enjoy The Weekend With Delicious Slow Cooker Recipes
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Finally, it’s the weekend, and it’s time to have some fun! After all, it can be challenging to make time for adventure during an average weekday. Between work, school, homework, chores and cooking, the whole family schedule tends to be packed. Saturdays and Sundays however, present the perfect opportunity to go hiking, visit new museums, take short road trips- you name it- the weekends are the time to do it.

And don’t worry about dinner time- unless you really want to, weekends are not the time to spend hours babysitting your stove. Instead, you can leave supper to a very reliable kitchen tool- the slow cooker. Slow cooker recipes allow you to cook a wide variety of foods with very minimal involvement, so you can seize the day while the pot does most of the work for you.

Ever heard of wine pairings? Well we think slow cooker/weekend activity pairings are just as amazing. Here are our suggestions:

  • Hiking and Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Look up local parks with hiking paths and strap your boots on for a fun outdoor adventure. While you’re reveling in fresh air, beautiful scenery and challenging pathways, a savory-sweet pulled pork will be slowly tenderizing itself at home. It takes four-six hours to cook this amazingly easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe, and you can adjust your temperature according to how long you plan on being gone. When you come home, all that’s left to do is toast some buns and dig in to some seriously delicious sandwiches.

  • Ball Game and Slow Cooker Pasta Fagioli

Going to a ball game is always a blast, and noshing your way through a wide array of stadium food, like hot dogs, popcorn and peanuts is all part of the experience. No game is complete without a sampling of those iconic baseball treats! But all those snacks tend to mean that your gang will have a significantly reduced appetite at dinnertime. A tasty but light Pasta Fagioli soup is the perfect solution. Flavorful chicken broth adorned with chopped veggies, small bits of pasta and chopped bacon is something your slow cooker can bring together while you enjoy the game. When you return, the whole family can enjoy a flavorful soup that is the perfect end to an exciting day.

  • Beach Day and Slow Cooked Country Beef Stew

Sun, sand and surf. If that sounds like your idea of an awesome day, you’re certainly not alone. Millions of people flock to the beach annually for active fun in the sun, which includes swimming, surfing, volleyball, sandcastle building and all sorts of fun activities. After the day has come to an end and your teeth-chattering family has emerged from icy beach waters, it’s time to take everyone home and conclude the evening with a nice, tummy-warming bowl of Slow Cooked Country Beef Stew. Your slow cooker will have been at work for five hours to produce tasty, melt in your mouth beef and vegetables that are satisfyingly accompanied by savory beef broth. It’s a delicious way to end an adventure-filled day at the beach and send your loved ones contentedly off to bed.

  • Museum Trip and Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Burritos

Always a fun outing, visiting museums can take time because there’s just so much to see. Have a blast exploring every exhibit while delicious beef brisket cooks to perfection at home. Later, you can gather everyone to watch a fun Blockbuster, like Night at the Museum, and serve up the tender brisket in fun and tasty burritos filled with lots of Tex-Mex goodies, like cheese, chopped chilies and salsa.

Everyone’s working for the weekend, and easy slow cooker recipe by Knorr® wants to work for you. Try one of our awesome family activity/slow cooker pairings and experience your weekend the way it was meant to be.
