Today I am thankful for slow cookers/crock pots. I have 3 of them that are different sizes. My husband got me one of those Hamilton Beach 6 qt. "set it and forget" crock pots for Christmas last year. There are 3 reasons I'm so thankful for having a crock pot.
1. I don't have to be rushed to get dinner in the oven at the last minute. Me and my son always has a healthy meal waiting for them rather than having to rely on takeout or unhealthy frozen, boxed, processed foods.
2. This time of the year I can slow cook all my soups, chili, and stews while I'm busy with other things. I can literally set it and forget it! LOL
3. Many days I don't feel well enough to cook (I deal with chronic pain) so being able to put something in the crock pot til dinner time has been a huge blessing.
