Disclosure: Redpack provided me with canned tomatoes and a spoon in exchange for my sharing about their Crockpot giveaway. As always, the opinions expressed are my own.
Growing up, my family didn’t really use a slow cooker. I’m pretty sure there’s one in the basement, but I can’t remember anyone ever using it. (This is the sort of post introduction that leads to my mother calling to correct my recollections.)
But everyone knows that slow cookers are one of those things you “have to” register for when you’re getting married. So we did. And though we don’t use our Crock-Pot as often as some people, I do really love it. I’ve used it to make pulled pork and Easy Springtime Crockpot Minestrone and stuffed peppers and Dijon Corned Beef and my favorite, this vegetarian slow cooker chili (which we’ve been enjoying for dinner this week).
So when Redpack offered to send me some of their canned tomatoes, I was all over it. It is so awesome to arrive home to work and rediscover that dinner is already cooked, as I did yesterday. It was cold and rainy and I had a million things on my mind and the moment I walked in the door I remembered that I’d made chili. I would be thrilled if some of my readers were able to enjoy slow cooking as much as I do.
Do you love your slow cooker? Do you have a favorite slow cooker recipe? Please share it in the comments below or on the Relishments Facebook. I would love to expand my repertoire, especially of vegetarian slow cooker ideas.
