I am always looking to find ways to do things that make life easier. “Work smarter, not harder” are definitely words I believe in and I try to implement this into life whenever possible.
To mix things up a little, I want to introduce you to something that I have used to make my life easier long before I got sick. SLOW COOKER COOKING! These handy small appliances definitely makes getting to the table easy and fits into my “work smarter” attitude.
I am known by my family and friends as the “Crock Pot Queen”. Why? Because I have 6 of them in varying sizes and there has been times when I have had 3 going at one time plus my rice cooker. Nothing is better than coming home from work or church and having the smell of food meeting you at the door. Just plate up the food and enjoy!
I still use my Crock Pots now because my chronic illness makes cooking a tedious chore. I find great accomplishment in putting a meal on the table and doing so in a way that is smarter not harder!
This recipe is one of my Husband’s favorites! It is inspired by a recipe from The Recipe Critic. I have made a few minor changes to make it mine. (Okay, I change every recipe I make)
Doing these types of meals worked perfect for me when I was able to work and it continues to work now. It takes one stress out of a busy day!
Let me know if you enjoyed this post and would like to see more of my slow cooker creations.
