Have I mentioned lately that I love my slow cooker? (I'm sure that I have, but it's been at least a week maybe since I shared that?) There's just something about having dinner started in the morning that alleviates a little stress at our house all day long. I actually timed myself as I made this one, and it took a whopping two minutes and thirty-two seconds to throw the ingredients in Mrs. Potts, plus an extra two minutes to clean up. (Seriously, that makes it worth trying alone!) Since I had all the ingredients in our kitchen it was also incredibly inexpensive to throw together. . . and, best of all my kids loved it… seriously loved it! WOOHOO!
Here's how to make your life easier by letting your Mrs. Potts do all the work too. . .
