Need some Back-to-School Crock Pot Dinner ideas? Here are my favorites!
It’s time for me to get organized. Back to school at our house means much more than “get your pencils sharpened.” I usually consider this time of year “Back-to-Soccer” season and brace myself for the crazy that comes with it. Matt coaches our York College women’s team so usually in August I smile at him and say something like, “Whelp, see ya in November.”
Elias (who moved into the college dorm over the weekend; I’m not ready to talk about it, ha) will be playing on the YC men’s team. Malachi (15) will referee as many rec-league and club team games as he can. And Brayden (6) will play on a rec-league team. I try to pack everyone up and go to as many home YC games as I can, plus of course, I’ll be Brayden’s biggest cheerleader.
Awwww. There’s Malachi, back in his baby-soccer days. Now here we are again with our new set of Littles!
I’ve done this soccer-mom-wife life for so many years now that I know full well what it’ll be like. And as much as I know that it will be challenging as it always is (especially now that we’ve got so many little ones again!), may I just say this very loudly:
I AM SO THANKFUL SCHOOL IS STARTING and that WE GET TO HAVE A SOCCER SEASON!!!!
Last spring, we weren’t sure, you know? In early March, we sent all of our beloved college students home with barely a good-bye. We trudged through quarantine like so many of you did, wondering when or if life would ever be back to normal.
I’m not sure we can call everything “normal” yet, but praise God, students are moving back and soccer season is happening.
So as I celebrate this and also get ready for a very busy season, I’m putting these Crock Pot Dinner Ideas in my back pocket to make our mealtimes easier! These 10 ideas are the recipes I tend to fall back on first…

What does your fall season look like this year?
Yay for you all! Glad you are having soccer and back-to-school! Thank you for these recipes. I’m waiting for “fall” temperatures, it’s been in the 90s ALL summer and that is hotter than normal for us in central PA. Love me the fall season and lower temps during the days and sleeping with the windows open at night!

Hope you enjoy these recipes! I hear you on the 90s temps! It has been pretty hot here in Nebraska as well. Hopefully cooler temps are coming your way!
