At the most recent 50% off sale at Savers I picked up a crockpot for $2.50. So for just a little more than the price of gas I picked up a used crockpot.
It works and so yesterday I made Sweet Potato Chili. This will probably feed me the rest of the week. Why have I never had one of these things before? How did I get so far into my life without a slow cooker.
Best $2.50 I have ever spent.
