>>>Make your crock pot your new best friend? You can toss dinner into it in the morning and it’s magically ready at dinner time. I cook with 10 hour work days outside<<<< To that I would add, make your bread machine your next best friend. It takes 5 minutes in the morning to throw the ingredients in and set the timer. You have a fresh, hot loaf of deliscious bread ( up to 2 lbs & for half the price of store bought ) to complete your meal.
