Today I am thankful for crockpots. Most of us already know that crockpots are great tools to use when you want to prepare a slow cooked meal without being tied to a stove or an oven all day. And more often than not they are associated with cooking various types of meats and poultry, such as pot roast and chicken. But crockpots are perfect for preparing other items as well, including beans, rice, soup, chili, dips, and even hot beverages such as apple cider.
As a person who loves to cook but has a schedule that keeps her rather busy, I do not always have the time to spend hours in the kitchen. But I enjoy slow cooked meals with tons of flavor and depth. Thankfully, I have found that having a crockpot is a perfect solution to that dilemma. I can season the meat, poultry, beans, or whatever it is that I want to prepare, put the necessary ingredients into the crockpot, turn it on and then go about my business. And hours later, after plowing through my to-do-list for the day, I can come home to a scrumptious aroma and a delicious meal. I am becoming hungry just thinking about it.
So, whether you have a busy schedule like I do, or you just simply enjoy the flavor of slow cooked meals and beverages, having a crockpot on hand certainly comes in handy. And if you want to tap into your adventurous side, you can even use crockpots to infuse your home with the wonderful fragrance of incense. And we thought that only humans were great at multitasking. #lovebythedrop
