Crockpot Heaven

Meal planning has never been my strongest suit. In fact, I'm more of a 'What's for dinner?' type of person who only thinks of it while driving home from work after 5 p.m. with a house full of hungry kids. Even when I've defrosted something - a none-too-often occurrence - I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. You'd think boneless chicken breast and ground beef would be the easiest to cook with, but I still have a hard time with it.

Why? Well, my time is tight and I like others don't really like to spend a lot of time cooking after a long day. Therefore I've decided that I must use the Crock-Pot more often. It's one of those kitchen appliances that are highly underutilized, and you can cook beef, pork, chicken, pasta, soup, stews and even desert in a Crock-Pot. And, the upside is you come home from a long day at work or school and whoa la, dinner is ready.
