Guest Post by Jill of Blessed Beyond a Doubt
Being a homeschool mom of 6 blessings, time management is crucial! One of the ways I have managed to put healthy meals on my dinner table each evening for my large family is by utilizing my crock pot several times a week.
I LOVE my crock pot!
We are best friends!
Top 10 Reasons You Should Use Your Crock Pot
1. You can start your meal at your convenience
I usually turn mine on right before lunch.
2. It is economical
It costs less than heating an oven and doesn’t warm your house up.
3. It’s super EASY
Just layer your ingredients (my children often prepare our crock pot meals).
4. It’s a no brainer to operate
Just turn the knob!
5. It’s a healthy alternative to fried foods
6. Meal stays warm
Once fully cooked, turn knob to “Warm.”
7. It makes a lot
You can freeze the leftovers and reheat in crock pot.
8. EASY clean up
Even easier if you use a removable crock pot liner.
9. You can buy a less expensive cut of meat
The meat is tender due to the slow cooking method.
10. It makes your house smell wonderful
I love coming home and smelling our supper!
Here are a few of our favorite easy crock meals that we enjoy after Sunday worship. I just put the ingredients in the crock pot before we leave for church and it’s always ready when we get home.
And here are some tasty crock pot recipes here at The Humbled Homemaker:
Using my crock pot has really been a blessing for me over the years. It makes my busy life manageable. I love trying new easy crock pot recipes and sharing them with others on my blog, Blessed Beyond a Doubt.
