I have to agree with my Husband that it’s hard for me to sit still for a few minutes and just be quiet. I’m the sort of person who needs to be doing something…anything.
I guess that’s why embracing the concept of slow cooking has been hard on me.
Well, it took me a good two years to finally accept that I needed to slow down, in the kitchen, and enjoy the extra time on my hands. So with those awesome Black Friday deals going on, I picked up a Slow Cooker!
I placed it on my counter-top and left it there on display for a good two months before accepting I really had to give it a shot.
Sure it meant planning ahead if I wanted my family to eat something out of the Cooker 4-8 hours later but the health benefits (and time benefits) were a big plus.
My first meal out of the cooker was, uhm, not exactly what I’d hoped it would be. But it’s because a certain somebody didn’t follow the instructions properly (Yes, me!)
Hubs decided to give it a shot and put together an amazingly sumptuous chicken curry with veggies that instantly converted me into becoming a believer.
I was ready to give it a shot again and…
So yes, I’m now slowly but surely embracing life on the slow track…atleast once a week, till I get the hang of things. (All you Slow Cooker Pros, stop snickering!!)
My next must try is this seemingly easy Slow Cooker Whole Chicken and Veggies recipe I found on the Hamilton Beach site. (I know, isn’t that cool? You buy an appliance and they support you with a bunch of recipes to get you comfortable!)
Because everyone knows I love veggies in anything, for the kiddos!
So tell me…
Do you have a favorite Slow Cooker Recipe that’s a must-try?
(Leave a link in your comment and I’ll hop over to pin it and hopefully try it over the coming days.)
