I do not know how I would manage my busy household without my fleet of crock pots. I personally think they are the greatest modern household invention. Put the food in at 8:00 a.m. Cover and ignore. Open and eat at 6:00 p.m.
Why, you may ask, am I mentioning my crock pot as a Frontline Moms tip? Because the crock pot answers for me dozens of parenting excuses:
We are just too busy to cook dinner at home.
We didn’t have time for family dinner. No one has time to cook.
We had to go through the drive thru. I forgot to get anything together for dinner.
