slow cookers- Budget101 Discussion List

Slow cookers are a blessing in my home. At times, I use two at a time. I am 48 years old mom and wife, take care of my 29 year old autistic son, and study at an university. I don't have time to cook. So in the mornings, I start one slow cooker with whatever meat I'm going to make that

    Slow cookers are a blessing in my home. At times, I use two at a

    time. I am 48 years old mom and wife, take care of my 29 year old

    autistic son, and study at an university. I don't have time to cook.

    So in the mornings, I start one slow cooker with whatever meat I'm

    going to make that day and another slow cooker filled with potatoes and

    water. By the end of the day, the house smells as if I've been cooking

    over a hot stove all day. When its dinner time, all I have to do is

    drain the potatoes, mash them, take the meat out of the slow cooker,

    and make a salad. If you haven't purchased a slow cooker, its a great

    investment. If you can, buy two slow cookers. People will think that

    you slaved over a hot stove all day.

    I LOVE the potatoes idea. I use my crock pot then make the potatoes on the stove. I have always though it defeats the purpose of using the crock pot. LOL Unless I cook everything together. But somethimes hubby does not like everything cooked together, I will have to get another crock pot. Thanks

    I love my slow cooker too! I just made a ham & cheese egg scramble in

    my slow cooker the other day!!! Started it before I went to sleep

    then it was ready the next morning for everyone to have for

    breakfast. I am looking for recipes for oatmeal in the slow cooker so

    if you have one please forward. I have also seen recipes for cooking

    quick breads in the slow cooker (slow-cooker-quick-bread; sounds like

    an oxymoron, LOL!!!) which I may try one of these days.



    There are some great slow cooker sites on the web, including one by a

    woman who is blogging her 365 days of slow cooker use (using it for a

    full year) who was profiled on Rachel Ray!



    Thanks,

    Stephanie

    Another member of this group sent me this recipe:

    DELUXE CROCKPOT OATMEAL

    2 cups milk 1 cup oats

    1 cup finely chopped apple 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds

    1/2 cup raisins and/or dates 1/4 cup brown sugar

    1 tbsp butter, melted 1/4 tsp. salt

    1/2 tsp. cinnamon

    Grease the inside of Crockpot. Put ingredients inside Crockpot and mix

    well. Cover and turn on low heat. Cook overnight or 8-9 hours. Stir

    before serving. Makes 4 Cups (6-8 servings)





    I tried it this morning (put everything to cook last night) and it was

    DELICIOUS!!!!



    I used steel cut oats instead of regular oats, so had to double

    everything b/c 1 cup steel cut oats makes 4 cups oatmeal. And,

    knowing certain members of my family and their picky eating habits, I

    had to omit the apple & raisins. STill it came out great!!!



    Thanks,

    Stephanie

    DELUXE CROCKPOT OATMEAL



    RE: Stephanie's crockpot oatmeal.



    Stephanie,



    How many did this serve? We use 5 cups water and 2.5 cups oatmeal in

    the mornings. We need to serve 5.



    Thanks,

    Sorry Stephanie. I re-read the recipe after I sent that note. It says

    right on it: Serves 6-8. Early senility, I guess.
