Oh hey slow cooker, hey.
You’re looking really great over there on the counter, all warm and stuff.
But not too warm that you heat up the whole dang apartment like that gauche oven. No. You’re super classy and independent You take your time, do your job well and I don’ t even have to supervise you. You’re like the perfect job candidate.
I was just…ah, having a fake conversation with my slow cooker to provide a weird/funny introduction to a recipe that I cooked in my slow cooker. NBD, guys.
Slow cookers make me think of meaty stews and thick soups, so at first, they don’t really seem to fit in with summer cooking. But they’re actually pretty perfect for summer (and obviously winter, spring, and fall.) No oven, no stove. Just toss a bunch of things in there, leave it alone, and come back to find a whole meal of cooked food!
I love our slow cooker, it’s easy to clean and takes everything from pork neck to big summer eggplants to flavor nation.
