Rediscovering the crockpot
oh, boy, I think I've hit the motherlode! How could I ever have neglected my crockpot...especially when it comes to saving time and money? These days I've been making a soup of the week...and ladling it hot into jars that often "can" themselves. Kept in the fridge (since I don't go to the trouble of sterilizing the clean jars), I take a jar to work every day of the week. Quick and easy lunches. Empty Bonne Maman jelly jars provide just the right size for my appetite, but since I'm trying not to buy imported products any more, I'll have to try to collect some similar-sized jars that once housed local products. Anyway, I'm in love with a crockpot again--especially after buying one with a lift-out crock that can go into the dishwasher. woohoo!
