With fall in full swing, I love slow-cooker meals that allow me to enjoy extra time with my family. What I love the most about using a slow cooker is that I don't have to worry about what to make for dinner when I get home from work. I also love that my preschooler and kindergartner can help me prepare the meal the night before. They love dumping ingredients into the cooker. Here are my favorite fall slow-cooker meals.
