My hubby works 60 hours a week and I am starting a new job that will be full time soon. We could really use some great veggie crockpot ideas, or meals that we can make on the weekends and freeze. A meal that can be whipped up in less then a half hour, without long lists of ingredients, could be helpful too!



So what are your favorite crockpot and/or freezer and/or quick/easy meals? We need both breakfast and dinner ideas (I think we have lunches covered.)

there are lots of threads floating around here on this. Try a search.



Soups, burgers, chili, burritos etc. are easy to do.

there are cookbooks at the bookstores specifically for veg*n crockpot recipes.

I don't tend to do them now, since they cook a lot faster with no meat in them, so they'd be ready well before I was home from work.



That's for things other than chilis or heavier foods....

My best hint would be to spend a few hours on the weekend slicing, dicing, etc. all of your fresh veggies and prepare some brown rice and whole wheat pasta. Put the veggies in ziplock bags with a paper towel and put all the little bags in your crisper in the frig. Put the rice and pasta in containers in the frig. Here you are all prepared for some great stir-frys. My suggestions on veggies would be red bell pepper, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, asparagus. I would cut the onion and tomatoes as i used them (the cut onion can really smell up your frig - ask me how i know).



I also prepare my salads on the weekend. Using the salad spinner to remove excess moisture and placing a paper towel in the ziplock bag. The salads will last for many days when prepared this way.



So there you have some great meals that you can prepare in less than 15 minutes will all of the prep work done.
