I’m not going to lie. My dream dinner option has arrived. I have always loved using the slow cooker to make dinner because you can put everything in that morning and then when the day gets busy and your stomach is more than ready for dinner, you have a big pot of goodness waiting for you at home to eat.
I was REALLY excited when The Crock-Pot Brand reached out to me to try Crock-Pot Cuisine (and when I told my mom ((we text all day long.. it has kind of gotten out of control)) seconds after finding out about them she told me to sign her up too:) I just love the whole concept of being able to have such a convenient, delicious meal waiting for me to eat at home with my Brookers at the table (ehhh counter) after a busy day.
I can just put everything into the slow cooker right after I finish my workout and then know that I’ve got something delicious waiting for me to eat for dinner.
How it works—> they send you your meals in a styrofoam cooler box packed with dry ice to keep the meals frozen. I then just put the box of ingredients in my freezer and took it out the day I wanted to eat my meal for dinner.
Does it get any more simple than this? I think not. Ohhhh and less time to prepare a meal= more time to run which we all can agree is a win-win situation.
All of the ingredients come chopped just the way you need them so that it takes approximately 2 minutes to put everything together. PS I am buying these meals to be delivered to one of my good friends that lives in a different state for when she has her baby in a few weeks. I can’t take her dinner to help her out but I can send her an amazing meal that is crazy easy to make. These are so awesome to have in your freezer for those days where life is crazy and you are too busy to cook. You can even set up to be on their subscription program if you want to make re-ordering simple.
PS one of my favorite things about our new place is the toy room right by the kitchen. Whenever I start cooking Brookie runs in to her kitchen and starts whipping up something delicious too.
We put everything inside of the slow-cooker, I took a quick shower and then we were off for the day doing random things until right before it was all finished cooking. I wish I could include a button to click on right now that could let you smell how amazing my apartment smelled once we got home. It was so nice to not have to think about what to have for dinner and to have everything ready for us… especially because our stomachs were growling big time once we walked in and could smell our dinner cooking.
This is what it looked like just a few minutes before it was all done! The rice and green beans were added 30 minutes before it was finished which cooked them perfectly.
I think my parents could smell it from their house and they showed up right away! Each meal kit from Crock-Pot Cuisine feeds about 4 adults so it was perfect for all of us (plus I had a little leftover:).
We all loved it and could eat this meal many many times a month and be happy.
