I go to an amazing small group every other week where we start our time off with dinner together. Sharing a meal is a great way to break the ice and get to know people on a deeper level. Something about eating together is powerful – walls are broken down, it’s easier to be vulnerable and conversation naturally flows.
We do each meal pot luck style and switch off who brings the main dish. Getting a main dish together in time can be difficult for me as I work full time about an hour away from our home. I rely heavily on crock pot recipes to get the job done. Even if you’re not crunched for time, these recipes are sure to be a hit!
