I love cooking in my slow cooker. It can make life a lot less hectic. One of my favorite things about the slow cooker is that dinner is prepared early in the day and it frees up my mind. I don’t have to think, “What are we going to have for dinner tonight” all day long. The worst part of making dinner is figuring out what to make, right?! If someone would just tell me what to make or what they wanted for dinner I would be glad to make it. So when I have a plan and follow through, it makes my day happier. What is even better than a crockpot meal is a freezer crockpot meal. All the thinking and prepping is already done. I love to go to my freezer, pick out a meal, plop it in my slow cooker and turn it on. This routine is especially appreciated on busy mornings or for busy working parents that won’t get home until 6 pm but still want a home cooked meal.
