I have to tell you that having a slow cooker is the best thing ever – besides my Mangle! You do a little prep, throw it into the slow cooker, walk away for 6 or so hours, and come back to DINNER! It is so nice after a day at work or hours spent on a sports field to know that dinner is ready and waiting for you at home.
The hardest part of having a slow cooker is finding good recipes. My husband and I buy every cookbook we find for the slow cooker, but they may only have one or two recipes we like. I am going to share with you our favorites, hopefully once a month or so, as we take this blog journey.
My husband is taking one of our sons to camp and my other son and I will be picking him up tonight right at dinner time – Father’s Day Night! It will be a mad dash to make dinner when we get in from the airport – so I thought to avoid all that – I am making Martha Stewart’s Slow-Cooker Sausage Lasagna
I am timing it to be ready when we walk in the door, have a green salad prepared in the fridge and throw a fresh baguette into the oven to warm. I also made just the mousse from an earlier post, Chocolate Tart Bake Off, for dessert. My husband and youngest son love mousse! I think it will be a simple, easy and delicious Father’s Day meal.
