Date Night-Slow cooker Hamburger Potato Casserole

Another at home date night. I wanted to make this meal in the slow cooker because it was so hot and humid I knew if we didn’t throw out dinner together we would end up grabbing some take out. I’m so glad I made this. Simple ingredients all brought together and slow cooked for hours just made all the flavours that much better. This makes a lot of food and I’m sure if you are a larger family you could stretch this meal for not too much extra cash by adding more corn or potatoes. Here’s a link to the recipe I used. I do have to admit I didn’t add the cheese on top and it was still delicious. If you haven’t yet check this blogger out on YouTube you really should. She has lots of creative and budget friendly meal videos.

We are loving our at home date nights. We can listen to music or not and be able to have a nice conversation without the hustle and bustle of a restaurant atmosphere. Don’t get me wrong there’s a time and place for eating out, but it can also be equally special staying in.

Slow Cooker Ham

With the warm weather approaching and life being as busy as ever, I love utilizing my crockpot. It’s my fail proof way of knowing I won’t be tempted to get take out because there’s a delicious meal cooking away. Now I still have to make some sides with this ham, but it could be as simple as a fruit and veggie platter and call it a meal. I wish this recipe was mine as it’s delicious, however we first tried the glaze I put on this ham at my brother in laws. His wife had made a delicious ham and now when my kids see a ham defrosting they tell me I have to make it like their Aunty. Here’s the link to the recipe she sent me.

It’s quick to put together. I secure the Pineapple rings to the ham make the above glaze and turn the crockpot on low for 6-8 hours. Once you try this glaze you will never go back. It makes the ham delicious and juicy.

Let me know if you give it a try.
