The Last Supper my beloved Crockpot!

Crock pots are a great way to make healthy, inexpensive meals for those of us on the a budget and with very little time. I actually use mine alot.

Last night before I went to bed I put some oxtails and shortribs in the crock pot to cook on low. The smell of them woke me up early this morning. I hurried downstairs to check on them and broke the lid right of the pot. I am truly saddened by the this event but overjoyed that I can finally buy a new one.

When I wanted to buy a new one Boobee wouldn't let me because he said we had a perfectly good one, but.......NOT ANYMORE!!!

I have been looking on and see several models that I am interested in. I can't wait until fall, I will be making chili, gumbo, stews and soups every week. I'll let you now what model I decide on but for now all the fun is in looking at different models and comparing prices and features.

Do you crock pot? What are some of your favorite recipes?

I need to start using the crock pot. I am not the best cook so I think it would be good for me. And easy. And cost effective. The only thing that makes it hard is I smell food cooking and just want to eat it even if it's not time yet!

I used to use a crockpot, but stopped because I found that my recipes were a bit too bland. Maybe I need to research more. The plus was that it actually was a great time saver in the evenings.
