Favourite in our house is
4 chicken thigh fillets
1 litre apricot nectar
1 pack French onion soup
Throw it all in and cook on low for 8 hours.
I usually put in some frozen green beans or peas about 10 mins before serving
served with rice
You could easily adjust this according to your budget. This is more than enough to feed us for 2 nights (2 adults, 3 children)

Dont have a name for it but always a hit here
About 8 sausages. You can brown and chop up like i do or chuck them un whole
Tin crushed tomatoes with herbs
Pkt soup like cup a soup. Make with about 250ml water
Add in herbs, garlic etc
Cup of rice
Mixed frozen veg about half hour before serving.
I cook it for between 4-6 hours, stirring every so often add more water if it gets too thick should be casserole type consistency.

Slow cooker pull apart. Very simple and great for school lunches
3 cups of sr flour
1 1/2 cups of warm water
1 tsp of salt
Herbs of your choice ( I like garlic and mixed herbs)
Toppings ( this can be anything but I like )
Tomato paste/pizza sauce
1 tin if crushed pineapple
Bacon diced roughly 400 grams
Geated Cheese a few handfuls
In bowl mix flour, salt and herbs. Add water mix into a dough. Grab half the topping and mix through a bit. Put on your baking paper than put in the slow cooker even it out and then top with the rest of the pasta sauce and other toppings.
Cook on high for 1 and 1/2 hours. With a tea towel under the lid. Fish off in oven for 5 mins.
Do not leave the house with a tea towel under the lid.
If you don't use pineapple than add another 1/2 cup of water.
