It’s national slow cooking month and it REALLY IS all it’s crocked up to be! Cause GCC is fixin’ to share some super fab dinners that you are going to love and best thing about it is…we’ve done the grocery list for you & you just have to throw everything in the crock to cook up all day while you run errands, sip on hot tea, or read a book!
I personally love crock pots and in my opinion they’re totally underrated. They make your life less stressful and they cook for you–what more do you want? These electrical goddesses can warm up your soup season, stir up your a stew day, and they can even sweeten you up with a hot cobbler? Mmm, comfort foods!!! Oh, yes and make your home smell divine!
the busy work day…
Since the holiday season is always a stressful and a busy time for everyone, we decided to have a couple of weeks of crock pot cooking in the office this past December. I came up with the menu and shopping list and everyone brought ingredients for the meals. We enjoyed a hot meal, the cleanup was great, the convenience of not having to pack a lunch each day, was a huge plus! So this “All it’s crocked up to be” series is dedicated to my up and coming cooking protegé’s… Amanda, Mireya, Nova, & Rosie. The girls that have discovered a crock pot, it’s uses, and how magical an instant meal can make your day!
What’s not to love about learning how to cook using the versatile crock pot, along with saving time in the kitchen?
in the kitchen…
So seriously, if you haven’t used your crock pot in awhile…dust it off- cause you want to take part in this. I’m adding the grocery list first so that you can go and shop for the main ingredients, (others you will have around the kitchen).
The meals will include: White Chicken Chili, Baked Potatoes, Chicken Spaghetti, Taco Soup, & BBQ for some awesome sandwiches!
The next post will have the first crock pot recipe… the WHITE CHICKEN CHILI (pictured above)! It’s a great medley of spices along with chicken, white northern beans and fresh cilantro! YUM!
So PRINT this grocery list by clicking on it and let’s get cookin’! Cause it is… all it’s crocked up to be~
