Perfect Summertime Slow Cooker Dishes for After Church

Y’all I live in South Georgia and it gets hot, well it just stays hot. Minus that 2 week stint we have in the “winter.” When I lived in the North East I felt like my slow cooker got a lot of use because so many of the recipes were made for the winter.

But there is nothing I love more than throwing something in my crockpot before church and walking in to the smell of something delicious. With that in mind I gathered some light meals you can put in your crockpot this summer that will leave you satisfied. After all, the Sabbath is for resting and there’s nothing more restful than a slow cooker.

Here’s what Rebecca had to say:

Set your slow cooker and when you come home you’ll be taking a trip to the tropics. Slow Cooker Macadamia Pineapple Chicken is the perfect balance of sweet and savory with a tropical flare. A delicious and easy gluten-free paleo dinner recipe.

Y’all this is my kind of slow cooker meal. I live for all things tropical and my hubs keeps the dried pineapple in stock because it’s my favorite snack. I give this a 10/10.

So my husband was born in El Paso, TX and landed here by way of the Army. The hunt for solid Mexican is hard. We leave a lot of restaurants not thrilled. We have our one go-to place and the rest of the time we’re making Mexican at home. I just was upgraded to making the burritos and tacos myself.

This Mexican shredded chicken looks amazing. I feel like it would be hubby approved. Voting yes to this!

Living in South Georgia and by the coast, Shrimp Boils are a must. When I lived in South Carolina in college, it was my first experience with a Shrimp Boil and it was forever marked as my favorite summertime food.

This is the perfect dish for inviting friends over after Church and going to town.
