I love my Crock Pot. On days when I don’t have a lot of time to spare, I can pull it out, throw a few things in the slow cooker, and dish up supper when I get home.
I try to budget our meals, purchase a lot of chicken and meat, throw it in the freezer, and stock up for the month. However, I forget to take things out of the freezer for supper, and then I am faced with trying to figure out what to eat.
Having a Crock Pot has saved me more times than I can count. If you remember mid-morning that you didn’t set something out to thaw, just throw it in the crock pot, and you’ve got something to eat in just a few hours.
The other night, I had a PTA meeting to go to, and a block of frozen chicken breasts. I threw them in the Crock Pot, added a few items, and later that evening we had something delicious and filling to eat.
The Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken was a bit of an experiment, as well. I wanted to make something different, and decided to throw a few things together, and it all turned out great.
