So we’ve been without a kitchen for several weeks, maybe even months…stopped counting. Living on take out and a gas grill. It hasn’t been too bad actually, but we are looking forward to the cozy smell of a simmering slow cooked meal at the end of a long day. For those of you who don’t have a slow cooker, I highly recommend you get one. We started out with a $20 model and used it for years. Although, last year we decided to cash in a Williams-Sonoma gift card that we got as a wedding gift and upgraded to digital. It’s way more expensive, but has a lot extra features that are key for those who work long days. It’s pretty sad when you can’t make it home in less than 10 hours to turn the slow cooker to simmer, but it happens. The digital version switches modes automatically. You can even brown meat right in the insert, just plop it on the stove. I’ll have to share some recipes and please feel free to post some if you have any.
