I don’t know about you, but when the weather begins to warm up, I want to spend as much free time as possible outdoors. I’d rather not spend it in the kitchen, and using the slow cooker allows me to set it, forget it, and enjoy the beautiful weather. When I’m finally ready to come back inside, a delicious meal will be ready to eat!
