We often have the best intentions to cook dinner ourselves, don’t we?  It’s usually healthier and it always costs less than restaurant meals.

But today, I’m sick. And with every Kleenex I reach for I’m fighting the urge to also reach for a takeout menu.

I have a go-to recipe for when, for whatever reason, I don’t have the time or energy to cook.  It’s my Dump & Dash Slow Cooker Chili.  Every single ingredient is waiting for me in the kitchen.  I literally dump it in the slow cooker and mere moments later dinner is no longer on my to-do list.

Here’s the thing.  I’ve been sick for a couple of days now.  And two days ago, when this cold first knocked me down, we had the Dump & Dash Chilli.  My chili has become one of my son’s favourites (he used to be less than excited to see it on the table until Ed discovered this new product) but twice in three days would be pushing it.

I’ve got my Meal Plan Master List.  Have you made one yet? It’s a meal planning game changer – normally.

But what my current master list lacks is more mindless, effortless meals like my dump chili.  That’s what this post is all about: little to no preparation slow cooker recipes that are delicious – you just dump it all in the crockpot and you’re done.
