Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Group Home

I hardly used the slow cooker because it was a pain to clean, then my friend told me about slow cooker liners..... like an over bag you would roast a turkey in but for a slow cooker.   Now with zero mess.... this has become my go to for hot summer cooking when my DH doesn't want to BBQ. 

Please share any tasty, affordable and summery slow cooker meals.

 I dont have one.. but now I feel like getting one :)

I tell ya, mine saves me a lot of time and money.  Cooking with a crockpot takes a fraction of the electricity that an oven or even stovetop uses.

We got ours as a wedding gift and only used it once in 4+ years bc I thought it was a pain.

Get some crock pot liners at Target (in the foil / baggie section), pick up any cheap hunk of meat and search on http://www.foodnetwork.com/   for a recipe. 

It has been a huge budget and time saver.   Plus it is so hot that I don't feel like cooking or cleaning and we are still eating healthy, home cooked meals.

They are about $25 - 40 at Target.    You might also mention to a few people that you are looking for one... you would be surprised how many people don't even use them.   You many get to take one off someone's hands to give them the gift of space.
