Supplies List: Here’s what you need.
- Crock Pot Liners
- Pre-made Slow Cooker Sauces
- A happy dance… because you now have an extra 20 minutes of free time per day
You’re exhausted, on-the-go, and your to-do list is so long you don’t know where to start.
I’m guessing you also do not have time to scrub the Crockpot every night or sit down with your pristine cup of coffee for a Sunday afternoon of “meal planning.”
Meal planning and cooking are time consuming. If you have multiple children under the age of 5 years old, spare time is not something you possess. And don’t even get me started about dishes or scrubbing the crock pot.
Unfortunately, we can’t all get takeout every night.
Here’s a time-saving hack that requires zero meal planning.
Recently, I’ve been seeing more and more pre-made slow cooker sauces at the grocery store. You literally just pour the pre-made slow cooker sauce into the crockpot then add a meat. Done. It’s so easy.
Finish off your meal with a bag of steam veggies in the microwave for 4 minutes and you have just completed dinner, like a boss.
These pre-made slow cooker sauces are really good. They come in many different flavors and range from $2 to $4. There are multiple brands making these sauces. Frontera, Campbells, and McCormick, just to name a few. I’ve also noticed the Frontera brand has zero preservatives and no gluten.
Also, here’s a life-changing tip for you. If you don’t know what a crockpot liner is, the next couple of sentences are going to change your life. Forever.
We love you crockpot. You cook our meals and feed our families in the most frugal and efficient way possible.
Until…we start scrubbing you at 10:00 pm…exhausted and considering cursing…but knowing it’s not what Jesus would say if he was scrubbing the crockpot. Sigh.
Enter the Slow Cooker Liner. Slow Cooker Liners are magical liners for your crockpot that enable you to never clean or scrub the crockpot… ever again. You place the disposable liner in the crockpot before you add your food. Afterwards, you toss the liner in the trash. Fast and easy cleanup, no scrubbing required. And, in case you are wondering, there is no BPA in the disposable liners.
This is how we mom-so-hard y’all. Now we can all go back to stressing about that huge pile of dirty laundry.
I’m out so save you time, even if it’s one slow cooker liner at a time.
