One of my fellow bloggers lovingly referred to me as the “Crock Pot Queen” the other day. I giggled to myself and thought well I think that crown fits so I’m going to wear it with pride. I adore my crock pot, slower cooker whatever you want to call it!
It makes life so much easier. I can throw things in, walk away and go about my business especially during the week or when I’m hosting an event. It takes the “work” out of meal time!
There’s only one instance that I don’t like it. That is when I’m stuck inside all day smelling the amazingness wafting out of it. It makes you hungry all day long! My friend that is a stay at home mom said she couldn’t use hers very much because of this reason. I’d have to say that might be the one time I don’t use it. But even stay at home mom’s need it when they are driving taxi and getting kids to all their activities all day long right?
I remember my Mom saying that she needed a hat that said “Taxi” on it when we were in junior high and high school. Looking back I think I’d support this claim. Living on a farm she was always driving us in and out of town to our different activities. Bless her heart!
