Crock Pot love.

Crock Pots were, no doubt, invented by members of the Heavenly Host. They require only 5 minutes to prep and allow 0 minutes to worry about dinner at 5:43 pm. So, why on earth don't I use this thing more?!

Because I don't want to worry about it at 12:26 pm either.

Well, Friday, I decided to be nice to myself and use the sense my mama gave me. At 1:31 pm, I dumped 4 frozen pork chops, a quartered onion, a can of cream of mushroom soup, and a can of chicken broth into the Crock Pot. I doused it all with salt, pepper and garlic powder, turned it on high and walked away until dinner time.

It smelled so good! I whipped up some Jasmine rice, a quick gravy with the juices from the pork, a can of green beans and we feasted on a warm, simple meal.

So my fam doesn't have to eat this every week, what are your quick Crock Pot recipes?


  1. One of my fav...Southwest tacos.

    4 frozen chicken breasts
    one can corn (not drained)
    one can beans, drained (I like black)
    3/4 can full of salsa (I use one of the cans I just emptied)

    Cook on low for about 8 hours and serve in tortillas with cheese and sour cream

  2. Chicken breasts in coleslaw dressing. I think you heat on medium for 10 hours. Maybe its 8! Bah. But its really simple and delicious!!
