Sure I am very grateful for my health, my family and my life. But do you really want to know what I am grateful for? My Crock Pot.
My crock pot has been there for me since day 1. She has seen me through hectic days of football and scouts. She has helped me pull off homemade meals I literally threw together. (Really, frozen bone-in chicken, onion soup mix, potatoes and carrots, all raw and simmer for 12 hours.) She has warmed the house with her smells of roast beef or chili.
Always faithful, never unreliable. My crock pot. A WAHM’s favorite tool.
Why am I so grateful for her? I hate cooking. But love to eat. If my crock pot never existed my family would be eating frozen dinners or Chili’s a lot more often. And that is not healthy.
My crock pot has helped me make my family happy for over 15 years. Healthy, hot meals are just waiting to be served at 6 PM. Filling our bellies with delicious goodness I only took 10 minutes to prepare. I love the ring to that “only 10 minutes to prepare.”
She has made me happiest of all. I know I can work all day as she does too. We both do not need to move much but my family thinks we did.
Today I have 6 bone-in chicken thighs, some poultry seasoning and chicken broth stewing together. Later I’ll add some baby carrots and white potatoes. When everyone’s stomach is growling I just head downstairs and declare dinner ready.
Thank you Miss Crock Pot for the years of sensational smells and full stomachs with as little work necessary. You are truly a WAHM’s best friend.
