Family Friendly Winter Dinner Ideas

Winter has certainly set in, with quite a few cold and wet days.  My slippers and bed socks are keeping my feet warm day and night, my family laugh at me wearing bed-socks through the day, but I really don’t like being cold and if my feet are warm the rest of me is happy. I have been making many of my winter recipes recently, with a mixture of cold night and or sick kids it’s been nice to indulge in some of these winter classics. Hope you enjoy some of these Family Friendly Winter Dinner Ideas.

Shepherd’s Pie  – The classic Shepherd’s Pie is always satisfying on a cold winters night. I usually make this dinner earlier in the day, pop in the fridge, run the kids around with their afternoon sports then place in the oven to warm through for 30 minutes after we get home.

Kat, while I realise you didn’t write the chicken and leek lasagne recipe I find that the F word in a recipe is completely unnecessary and lowers the tone and quality of your excellent blog.
I tried to comment with a privat email but it says page unavailable.

I got really worried Gwen I don’t ever use that word on the blog and never will, so I just did some searching to locate it. That recipe wasn’t published on my blog, although yes I did link to it and agree it doesn’t match my tone at all, but the lasagna was delicious and it was more so that that I wanted to share.

Winter for me means low and slow, so Beef Burgundy or Coq au Vin. They taste even better the next day.

Can any of these recipes be done in a slow cooker?
