I truly have a love affair with my slow cooker. I prepare everything the night before, turn it on in the morning and there is only one pot to clean up. I tend to do something in the slow cooker on Monday's, as that is a night we run. By the time I get home, I am mentally spent and the most amount of work I want to do is open a bottle of wine. It's easy to have everything there waiting for you. I have been experimenting a lot with pulled pork and different flavors.
