Soon, it'll be Christmas morning. You'll be settled onto the couch, watching the kids play with their new toys, finally relaxing after weeks of wrapping presents and moving that damn Elf. You'll be considering leaving the kids with your partner for a few hours so you can take a well-deserved Christmas nap when the "Mommy, I'm hungry" hits. In their Santa frenzy, the kids might have forgotten they needed food, but they'll remember as soon as the last package is opened. To save you some stress, here are 16 Christmas recipes you can make in your Crock-Pot.
In some ways, Christmas is actually pretty low pressure as far as holidays go. You open presents, hang out with your family, and eat some gingerbread. The stress of the event comes with all the prep that's required — I think most parents are anxious from Black Friday until Christmas Eve as they try to get presents and organize holiday celebrations. You also have to have food prepared for your kids and/or the extended family, especially since most restaurants and grocery stores are closed on Christmas, but luckily, cooking doesn't have to take away from your holiday relaxation... especially if you have a Crock-Pot.
I found 16 Christmas recipes you can make in your Crock-Pot, so holiday meals have truly never been easier. Plus, since most of the recipes I found can be prepared in less than 30 minutes, you won't even have to lose any relaxation time to make them. And check out these Crock-Pot recipes for Christmas Eve to make your final day of present wrapping even easier.
