As a busy Mom of three children my crock pot has become my best friend. I can easily get up at the crack of dawn with my 3 year old who just loves to wake up the moment light shines through and start dinner on low in my trusty crock pot. I have tried placing a dark curtain (rather sheet as I don’t have extra curtains for his room) over his window and everything but my sweet AJ seems to know exactly when the sun comes up and scream “Mama it light out, you come get me”.
My crock pot makes it easy for me to pile everything into it, turn it on low and leave it there all day so that come 5 or 6pm dinner is pretty much ready, unless I am making something to go with it, then I cook that on the stove which takes 10 minutes or less. So basically for 10 minutes of my time I can have a full course meal for my three children and me!
I was checking out my email blog subscriptions yesterday when I happened upon a great crock pot meal idea that is affordable and sounds delicious. Go Graham Go has the recipe listed on her blog for Crock Pot Barbecue Chicken. I plan to buy the supplies needed during my next grocery shopping trip to Walmart so that I can taste test this delicious recipe idea!
Make it a Happy Day!
