Am looking for some new ideas for slow cooker or easy prep meals to feed a family of 6 over the winter, no one particularly fussy.
Getting bored with my meal ideas and now I'm working every afternoon I need quick easy ideas.
Thanks in advance!

I sometimes make champ if I am busy, boil potatoes the previous day and mash then add a little buttermilk and reheat the next day , add chopped scallions or spring onion to the mix for a simple tasty meal. I sometimes add flaked pan fried mackerel to the potatoes.

Another family with four boys here!

I do a very simple pasta dish that my fuve like. Cook pasta ie penne. In another pan heat a tub of single cream and add chopped up gorgonzola cheese, stir till cheese melts.

Add some frozen.peas to the pasta for the last few mins. Chop.up some 'naice' ham.

Mix pasta and peas with the sauce and add some chopped ham. Done in the time it takes pasta to cook! Tastey and easy!

My dc (I only have 2, but they eat enthusiastically) are always happy to eat spaghetti alla carbonara, which are super easy and fast to make.
