Slow cooker
Well, old man winter has arrived in my corner of the world. That mean my slow cooker will get a permanent counter spot in the kitchen until spring. I always like to have something hot to eat on hand when it's cold out, and the slow cooker fits the bill nicely. Soups, stews, chilis, roasts, whatever. Just as long as there's always something hot and ready.

Here's my standard schedule.....make a slow cooker meal twice a week. One small meals worth, (three servings-ish) gets packaged, vacuum sealed, and frozen. The rest stays in the cooker on "keep warm" until it's gone. That's usually one or two days of grazing. That leaves me with a house full of satisfied ladies (wife and two daughters) and a quick meal in the freezer, that can be hot and ready in 15 minutes. I find holding back some keeps everyone from having to eat too much of the same thing all at once, and leaves them wanting more. So we get plenty of variety, and no one gets tired of any single recipe.

Who else loves their slow cooker? How often do you use it? What's some of your favorite slow cooker recipes?

Just visiting.
