Why I am in love with my crock pot

People, is there any more joy then knowing your dinner is already made? I doubt it.
I have a pork loin sitting in my crock pot right now simmering away waiting for dinner time, where it will be consumed with little effort.
I wish I used my crock pot more often. I am going to try and make it a goal to use it at least once a week. It always seems like I have at least one day each week where the day is just crazy, and I know it would benefit us all to have something that even Drew could pull-out, slice and serve. Does anyone have any crock pot recipes they love? If I love this one, I'll let y'all know.
As far as my other goals, i have a little chart (that's right, Ginger -- a chart) for my goals. I hope that by having some sort of a way to chart my progress, and make myself accountable each day I'll do better. That's right, Spencer has one for potty training, and I have one for being more healthy. Nothin' wrong with that. Anyway, my current goals are not watching TV during the day. It seems like I always lay on the couch after i put Conner into quiet time, and then it just seems to eat my whole day up. No good. My other goal is not to overeat, I have a collumn for each meal as well as one for snacks. I am hoping to limit myself to one snack each day. Yesterday, I had two cookies, but I blame Carly for making such delightful ones at RS, couldn't resist.


  1. I do much better with charts/lists. I have a dry erase board on my fridge to make me feel good when I erase my accomplished goals. How was enrichment? I wish I could have been there!

  2. do you give yourself rewards along with your chart. In my crock pot I still make that roast with the italian dressing you made for us years ago.

  3. I have been using my crockpot all summer, just made a yummy chicken taco salad recipe I combined from Michelly and Jennifer Stratford.

  4. Crock pot fan here... use it every Wednesday (YM/YW night)... good stuff!

  5. oh and good idea on the chart... maybe I'd get more done if I had a chart...

  6. I love having a crockpot. I just need to remember to use it more because I love coming home (or just being home with) to a finished dinner.
