BEST EVER Dump and Go Crockpot Recipes For Vacation | CHEAP Quick & Easy Slow Cooker Meals To Make On Vacation That Your Family Will LOVE!

Hey friends, I’m sharing 2 more of the BEST Crockpot dinner recipes that I’ve EVER made! And I saved them to make while on vacation with the family this week. I am also sharing how I’ve been saving our family money on the vacation food budget for years by cooking and planning ahead; and NO, I don’t spend all day in the kitchen on vacation. It just takes a little planning ahead, making good use of your crockpot and learning how to spruce up some convenience foods. These are tried and true family favorites, perfect for vacation, a cozy fall dinner or just a quick weeknight meal anytime of the year. As always, they are all budget friendly and use simple ingredients found in most everyone’s pantry or grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and sharing our vacation memories, I hope you will subscribe and come back every week for more.

If you don’t have a church home or are not able to attend in person services, here is a link to my church’s YouTube channel. I encourage you to watch and when the time is right, seek a home church for you and your family. I am praying for you!

If you are having trouble providing food for your family, please contact your local government, churches, and schools. Food insecurity is nothing to be embarrassed about; there are many resources available to help. Everyone deserves to be able to feed their family.

    So happy ya'll had a great time in Florida!! I live in the panhandle of Florida and am proud that ya'll spent your vacation here. When I make the taco soup, I use a can of Rotel tomatoes/peppers instead of diced tomatoes because it adds a little extra heat the soup.
