In today's busy world we often overlook the most precious commodity of all...time. Time to spend nurturing your soul. Time to spend centering yourself to prepare for yet another busy day. There's more you say....oh yes...I forgot about the time you need to spend waking up, taking a shower, brushing your teeth, selecting the appropriate garb (wardrobe) for the day, applying make up (for you ladies out there), doing your hair (this applies to both genders), making the kids lunches, waking the kids up, waking the kids up again (LOL), preparing breakfast, brewing coffee, finding you keys, fidning your cell phone, ("darn it I forgot to put gas in the car"), stopping at the gas station while you zoom in otu an out of traffic like Mario Andretti...yes the list goes on. So you may tiredly inquire, "What can I do to save alittle time?"
Well, not to be redundant but a crockpot/slow cooker goes a long way. I am not going to give you a recipe because there are som many available to suit your family's taste. If you are reading this message, you undoubtedly have the resources to access a myriad different concotions that cook themselves all by tehmselves while you are tending to other things. Quite simply the prep time is minimal and the pot does the rest.
When you arrive home after, getting stuck in the elevator, getting stuck in traffic, getting cut off in traffic, picking up some milk, picking up the kids, calling your significant other, letting the dog and his bursting bladder out, doing algebra equations with said kids, stopping fights between said kids....oh and giving yourself a moment to breath...you will be treated to a savory home cooked meal (the kind your mom used to make).
So, take some time (LOL); look up some recipes and remember to laugh along the way...remember time is a commodity, and it is not just wasted on youth. Live, laugh, love and eat well.
