I can be such a slow learner sometimes. I have seen MANY Mom’s praise their CrockPots…but do you think I listened? Oh no…I like to make things 10-times harder! LOL!!
Lately with my schedule and work-load, I’ve been in search of things to make my life easier. The sock-bun hair do…in love. Saves so much time. Cooking with my CrockPot. Omgeeeeeee. My life simplified times 100!!! I only cook with it lately. And I looooooooooooove it!!!
I’m learning to freeze food too! My Mom bought me a surprise deep freeze awhile back. A little one – and it’s PRECIOUS and PERFECT! I had no idea the amount of food we were wasting…and how much money I would save with a freezer!
When I cook…most of the time my picky toddler doesn’t like it. Soooo…I can’t eat it all! And it would eventually go to waste! Now…I freeze it! And I have meals out the WAZOOOO ready to go in my freezer.
Now factor in my CrockPot….and I’m in cooking bliss!
For example, this morning Jaxon and I whipped up a stew in less than 10 minutes.
This week after grocery shopping…I cooked the WHOLE thing of my ground beef. Then I divided it up into small freezer baggies with about 1-pound of meat in each baggie. (( HELLOOOOO another light-bulb moment for me! Cook your meat ahead of time = LESS WORK later!!))
Then I chopped up a few potatoes. These babies MADE my day! Purple POTATOES…LOVE THEM!!!!
My helper had fun too! He loooooooooves to help in the kitchen!
I let him add the carrots.
Love his JOYFUL heart!
I also let him add the salt, pepper and dried onions. ((I always used dried onions because they don’t go bad as quickly for me!))

Hope you have a BLESSED day!
