Slow Cooker Honey Apricot Lamb with Almond Cous Cous

With my busy schedule (school & kindy runs, play dates, Ballet, Swimming Lessons…and running an empire ; ). I am always looking for delicious Slow Cooker Meals. I love the feeling of popping everything in the Slow Cooker in the morning & dinner is ready to roll in the afternoon and not having to be prepared during ‘witching hour’.

I came across this delicious recipe via Taste.com and wanted to share it with you!
