When it is cold out I like a nice hearty meal. This usually takes hour at the stove preparing a feast. I unfortunately did not have hours to cook this weekend. My family is coming to town and I really need to clean the house. Not that it was dirty, but Tucker seems to shed 24/7 so I needed to tidy up a bit. SO without time how was I going to create a hearty home cooked meal without having time to cook. There steps in my good friend, The Slow Cooker. I enjoy using my slow cooker to make hearty meals. You can cook for hours in them and barely break a sweat. They do all of the work while you go on your merry way (well in this case, clean 🙁 so it was not so merry). Either way, I had a great meal and the house is clean and organized.
Slow cookers can be set to low to cook all day or set to high to cook in about 4 hours. Still slow, but it allows you to prep dinner at lunch. That way you don’t have to wake up early.
