A week of super easy dinners

I’m a real fan of a lazy dinner. I love to utilise my slow cooker where possible. Often I don’t want to spend more than 10-15 minutes preparing dinner, but I still want to serve my family something tasty. For me, I love to be able to put dinner on in the morning and then come back, at the end of a day of work, and find that dinner is ready to serve. This is so convenient, helps us avoid the takeaway and saves us money too. This week of super easy dinners is going to be a mixture of slow cooker dinners (that are still easy to make without a slow cooker) and fast dinners.
