I don't use a crock pot or Instant pot meals

even though I have both. But I do have one pot meals that I make  when I am busy. They are dishes that can be put together ahead of time and then just put on the stove or in the oven. If they are going in the oven so it the sides that includes dessert and sometimes the bread.

Cabbage, chunked potatoes , chunked carrots and ham chunks (or bacon or no meat)(pot)
