Do you use your slow cooker often?  I need to use mine more than what I do.  I know people that have more than one in case one is dirty. I work night shift so I sleep during the day.  It can be hard waking up in the afternoon and figuring out what to make and what doesn’t take too long.  I like when I use a crock pot because I when I wake up the meal is done.  Have you thought about how using a slow cooker can help your family life?

  1.  Many times, a family’s full supper meal is the crock pot.  So that means less dishes for the mother or the children to was when it is their turn.
  2. Having a meal in the crock pot/slow cooker is time saving in the dinner process.  Many parents come home from work and it may take over a half an hour to prepare supper.  By the time, it is supper time the food should be ready.

Hi Gail, thanks for sharing this on Bloggers Pitstop #86 – I recently bought a slow cooker from ebay (bargain) and am really starting to enjoy using it. I have various health problems, so when I actually manage to organise myself it is so useful…I wish I had bought it years ago, particularly when I was still working night shifts, like you. Just have to get my act together in the morning to get it on, but love having a meal ready in the eve with minimal prep…..beef stew is the best and my family love slow cooked gammon joint. Claire x
