With the hot weather just about here I thought about getting out my crock pot / slow cooker .What a great invention this is.
All that you need to do is put it all together in the morning , then go spend your day having fun with your children and grandchildren !! After that if you still have time which I never do, because I never want to leave my grandchildren, go about your business. When you are ready for dinner it's all done without heating up the house. I have made a lot of different meals in it and I will share some of them on a later date. I will say that most of my favorites start with chicken . Usually you are able to get chicken pieces at a good price and after cooking in the crock pot the meat just falls of the bone. This way you have more servings because you lose very little of the meat. This is just one of many ways to still have a hot meal in the summer without sweating over a hot stove. You will save also save money when you run the air conditioner because it won't have to work so hard. My grandchildren, especially Sissy, also like to put the food in the crock pot and love to see what we have made together. They are both learning to cook and we are having a ball !
