Hey all,
 
Does anyone use a slow cooker pot? It's such quick prep and it frees up time for HAIR CARE.
 
What do you cook in it?
 
My recent obsession is cooking chili in one of the smaller-sized crock pots.
  • About 1/2 cup beef, browned in a skillet with salt, pepper, garlic, some cajun spice and ground cumin
  • About 3/4 cup chili beans, preferably soaked overnight in cool water.
  • One 2-oz can of tomato paste
  • 6 oz canned diced tomato, or two fresh tomatoes diced
  • 1 tsp sugar
Set it on low-medium overnight and an unseasoned chili should be ready in the morning.
 
Taste and add the necessary amount of salt on the morning-after.

I don't have one, but it sounds like a great idea.  ATM I'm content to let Marie (Callendar), the Boston Market, and similar, to do much of my cooking. Embarrassed  I really should try to break that habit.

BTW Anais Satin, I concur with your priorities. Wink

Dave, please tell MARIE I said hi! I miss her very much. Wink

Cooking is, of course, cheaper than eating out or eating take-out.... which... in turn... frees up more money to budget for HAIR EXPENSES.

Something I love to do is cook a few "interchangeable" foods over the weekend and keep other interchangeable foods in the freezer. Interchangeable, as in rice (goes with almost anything) potatoes (likewise), different meats and different sauces.

It's even nicer to do it while my hair is drying from the shower.

Man oh man I love home life rituals.

I have a slow cooker also, but I cant see leaving it on  and leave the house, too dangerous, even on low, my slow cooker overflows, and its a mess if not watched, if I use my slow cooker, i make darn sure Im home thru out the day, and if need be to leave, I unplug it, safety first!!! How do you all make your chicken stews?? I sure could use some recipes of a slow cooker for this, thank you ladies.Smile
