I LOVE my slow cooker. I tend to use it in spurts, but it has been so cold I love putting something together to cook all day, filling the house with delicious smells to be ready exactly when I need it to be. Slow cooker soup recipes are a favorite. All day simmering creates flavors that are unmatched.
More than combatting the temperature highs in the 20’s we’ve enjoyed for the past few weeks, I appreciate the slow cooker for letting me have most of my day to do things other than make dinner. Even over the holiday break, though I had the time, I did not want to spend it all in the kitchen. I was more interested in doing some frigid outdoor cooking on a new smoker Santa brought me!
The transition back to the school routine after a break is always rough. And not just for kids. My family sinks into a break like a cozy easy chair we don’t want to leave. However, when the kids go back, I inevitably have a mountain of blogging work and house-related work to do, as well as I’m out of my normal groove.
I can’t think of what to make for dinner. I don’t have time to go to the grocery store for a few days for all I need to catch up on. What I really want is to snap my fingers and have it covered.
A slow cooker is about as close as one can get to a magical moment of dinner instantly appearing in my opinion. There is nothing better than loading all your ingredients into the slow cooker and ending up with a delicious meal and people begging for seconds.
