crock pot

OMG I’m madly in love with my newest purchase! No, it’s not sewing related at all! In fact, it’s cooking related – which is a surprise since cooking is one of those silly necessities that take you away from sewing/quilting/crafting!  I have a Slow Cooker, have had one for many years.  I love it, of course. Nothing better than coming home and knowing DINNER IS ALREADY MADE!!!  However, I have a picky eater, who doesn’t like everything mixed together.  To top if off, some of my favorite individual and side dishes could be made in the crock pot, if only I had three to set up at the same time.  Well…I was in Wallie World the other day and what did they have but Crock Pot Hook Ups.  The solution to my problem.

Slow Cooker

Instead of a 6 quart monstrosity that would have us eating leftovers for weeks, since it’s just my son and I most of the time, something smaller is perfect.  And combining the two types together, I get a main dish crock pot, and two side dish crock pots!  Here’s the best part: I got the two smaller one for $36.00 and the Large Oval one for $20.00! They were on clearance! Whoo hooo!

So I’ve spent the day looking for crock pot recipes for tomorrow!  I think I’m going to go with a Chicken, Soup, and Rice recipe.  This will be great because tomorrow is the Quilt Guild meeting, and I’ll need to rush to get there on time.

I’ll keep you posted!
