This year, make meal planning one of your resolutions! Meal planning helps you to save money and helps bring your family together in the evenings, too!
To give you some meal planning inspiration, I have teamed up with two other awesome bloggers and we’ll each be bringing you a new themed recipe each week! This week’s theme is slow cooker recipes! Make sure you link up YOUR favorite slow cooker recipe below! It was hard for me to choose just one!
Make sure you stop by my co-hosts pages to check out their recipes, too:

Today’s recipe is a family favorite – french dip sandwiches. It doesn’t get much easier than this. The only “work” involved for you is shredding the meat when you get home. They are sooo yummy!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
2 cans beef broth
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
4-6 hoagie buns
(we also add some swiss or provolone cheese)
Place roast in a greased slow cooker. Pour broth over the top of the roast. Add spices. Cover and cook on low heat 8-10 hours (or high heat 5-7 hours). Remove roast and save extra juice. With a fork, break the meat apart and serve on hoagies. Use excess juice for dipping sandwiches.
WW points = 7 points per serving (this does not include the cheese or the buns, add 2 points for the cheese and 4 points for the whole wheat bun)
Here’s the finished product. Sorry we didn’t have any “fancy” plates to make it look pretty. We were celebrating my niece’s birthday and she thought they were plenty fancy! We served these with fruit salad and veggies and dip!
