Keep It Simple Sweetie

Thursdays are a very long day for us in the Rodriguez household.  We leave our house by 7:25 for our commute to school and don't get home until about 7:15 because Paulo has soccer practice.  I decided to put my indentured servant to work for me and started dinner before I left the house.

Actually I started the process the night before.  I precut two yams and one sweet potato, two apples and one onion.  Then I tossed them in the fridge.  Took me about 5 minutes including scrub time.

In the morning I dumped them into the crock pot and seasoned them with sea salt, cinnamon and garlic powder and plopped a half dozen bone in chicken thighs (partially frozen, that's the beauty of the crock pot, it doesn't care if you remembered to defrost your meats!).  I turned it on low...and left.  When I came home all I needed to do was wash hands, put napkins on the table and plate the food, dinner was served!  Ah, the crock pot, I love my crock pot!  Hot dinner ready with roughly 10 minutes of prep time, that is the beauty of the crock pot!
