Use your crockpot to make these simple, yet tasty, foods to serve at your family's Father's Day celebration!Crockpots are extremely handy. They are the ultimate “set it and forget it” method of cooking. Most of the recipes that are designed for Crockpots are simple and require few ingredients.

People tend to think of using a Crockpot in cold, winter, weather. Don’t forget, though, that a Crockpot is a great alternative to using an oven (and heating up your house on a hot, humid, summer day). This weekend, why not try some Crockpot recipes that your Dad will love?

3 Recipes for Father’s Day

Bacon Wrapped Smokies
AllRecipes has the ultimate appetizer! Their recipe makes 16 servings. You will need:

* 1 pound of sliced bacon
* 1 package of beef cocktail wieners
* ¾ cup of brown sugar

For this one, you have to use your oven first. Preheat it to 325 degrees. Wrap each cocktail wiener in a piece of bacon. Use a toothpick to hold it together. Put them all on a baking sheet, sprinkle the brown sugar over them, and bake for 40 minutes. When the sugar gets bubbly, put the wieners in a slow cooker on the low setting to keep them warm until they are ready to serve.

Italian Shredded Beef Hoagies
Pillsbury has a super simple Crockpot recipe for hoagies. You will need:

* 2 pound of beef boneless arm roast (trim off the fat)
* 2 medium onions (sliced)
* 1 can of Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes
* ¼ cup of tomato paste
* 8 hoagie buns
* 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

Put the beef roast in to a 4 to 5 quart Crockpot. Add the onions. Mix up the diced tomatoes and the tomato paste in a bowl, and then pour it over the beef.

Cover it. Cook on low heat setting for 8 to 10 hours.

Remove beef from Crockpot. Put it on a cutting board, and pull it apart (using forks). Put some on each hoagie bun, add cheese, and serve!

Sausage With Sauerkraut and Potatoes
Real Simple lives up to its name with this recipe. You will need:

* 1 ½ pounds of bratwurst links
* 1 ½ pounds of red new potatoes
* 2 cups of sauerkraut (drained)
* 1 sliced small onion
* ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
* They also add a variety of seasonings.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
