I am thankful for my Slow Cooker! Some people might find this silly, but I really am! There have been times that it has been a life saver. I love that I can throw everything into the slow cooker and have dinner waiting for me when I get home from football practice, cheerleading, dance, tumbling, band concert, baseball, softball, etc. My kids do a LOT of activities through out the year, and I love how active they are, but sometimes that means getting home late, but also leaving too early to eat dinner before hand. With my slow cooker I can just dump everything in there and whenever we get home dinner is ready.
This is the one that I have, and I absolutely love it!! It has a timer on it, so I can set the temp and then how long I want it to cook. When the time ends it beeps at me, and then it automatically turns it to the 'warm' setting! How cool is that?
I also love that I can easily cook roasts and whole chickens in my slow cooker with VERY minimal effort! A nice big huge home cooked meal, and I am able to go to the store, run errands, maybe go to a practice with the kids, and do stuff around the house without thinking about it.
So yes, I am very thankful for my slow cooker!
