I got a new slow cooker!
Please see our pulled chicken post for more info on the demise of the previous one. I’ve promised my husband I will treat this one with a little more respect.
I need to start using my slow cooker more. I say this each time I use it, because each time I use it I marvel over what I genius I am.
There really is nothing like having a no-brainer dinner hot and ready when you walk in the door at the end of a long day. Especially when it’s cold and dark by 5:30pm.
And a no-brainer dinner with just a handful of ingredients that makes plenty for dinner and leftover lunches? Sign me up.
Ginger adds a zip and a freshness to slow cooker meals. I find the best way to prep it is to freeze it and grate with the small side of a grater.
Prepping the ingredients the night before, in this case chopping up the sweet potato, grating the ginger and adding the curry powder, will save time and allow you to add the wet ingredients and slip out the door with less than 5 minutes work in the morning.
Adding fresh greens right before you eat will ensure they stay bright and fresh and will add great texture.
Now, to plan my next genius slow cooker move…
