My slow cooker is 30+ years old, so I mostly slow cook things on sundays! I don't entirely trust it...

If you are wanting to branch out on the things you eat and try new recipes (you may not be there yet), I often will decide I want to eat chicken or beef or pork chops or whatever veggies is on sale and then look online to get a good recipe. Pinterest, if you like that sort of thing, can also be your friend. I've found some fantastic veggie recipes there (I am in love with roasted cabbage!).

Sometimes you don't have to think too complicated on the cooking front. My mom is always talking about how she doesn't have recipies and you don't really need them, except for how long and what temp to put something in the oven. And pseudo convenient foods, if you actually don't like to cook, are pretty helpful. I am in love with all these flavoring packets, especially the frontier mexican stuff and I can't remember the brand but there is one that is a red wine and porchini sauce you use for a crock pot roast. Dead easy and lots of flavor.
