Sunday Grateful Thoughts

Another beautiful Fall weekend is passing and with the additional hour of sleep tonight, there is always so much to be grateful for.

My crockpot is the best time saver I have!  It has been very depended on here.  By the time I get home after work, I’m not up to cooking an entire meal for the family.  I take a few minutes before work, stuff my crockpot with something yummy and when I walk in the door after a long day of work, it smells wonderful.  Not to mention how yummy and satisfying it feels to know I don’t need to spend an hour in the kitchen on my feet.

I think this is my favorite way of cooking a chicken, but we do eat beans and spilt pea soup a lot as well.  Do you have a favorite crockpot recipe?  I think need some new ones.

So tonight we are having Beans and Corn Bread – – yum.

And as I took this picture, I promptly crashed my glass lid on the floor and it shattered into tons of pieces. . . let me say, I’m very grateful for my husband’s new job so I can get a new crockpot (can’t get a replacement lid, out of stock) and continue to make dinner the easy way this week.

  1. That looks really tasty! I love my crock pot, too. I usually leave it going overnight, though, so we have good food for lunches AND dinner that night. 🙂 My favorite thing to cook in the CP by far is lamb shanks.

  2. I love to cook in the crockpot, too! My favorite is to put chicken breasts (can be frozen) in the crockpot. Then pour over a can of Rotel tomatoes, mixed with a package of taco seasoning. Cook all day. Can be used in taco shells, tortillas, on baked potatoes or as a sandwich. Also, check out Skinny Crock Pot, and Crock Pot Girls on FB.

  3. Oh No! I'm always afraid I am going to drop the lid or it is going to get cracked.

    I use my crock pot all the time. Tomorrow is ribs and potatoes. I've made soup, chili, brisket, chicken, roasts, and on and on…. I love that I can throw a frozen piece of meat in there and by dinner time it is cooked perfectly.

    I like to plan my sewing days around the crockpot. If I throw dinner in the crockpot I can keep sewing right up until dinner and not worry about feeding the family a good dinner on time.

    There are several blogs that are dedicated to crock pot recipes. Google is my friend lol.
