Here in New Orleans we are all about food. Our seasons are named for the food we eat  and we are perfectly ok with that. However, as moms we are busy. Between work, school, kid activities it leaves little time to cook a healthy meal for our families. Throw in the craziness of Mardi Gras with parades almost nightly and it’s enough to make a mom lose her mind. If you’re like me, you don’t want to feed the kids nothing but fast food or junk during parade season. But what’s a busy mom to do? That’s why we put together this list of New Orleans slow cooker recipes for you so you can have dinner ready before you head to the parades!
