After careful thought, I choose to stop the slow cooker calendar. My boys didn’t think I would really do it to begin with and after seeing what it has done to my grocery bill, it is simply too expensive to keep doing. On the bright side, I have bunches of leftovers in the freezer because well, they weren’t here to eat it. I’m still using the calendar and I will make some of them. One thing I do miss is a hot meal ready for me when I get home. I simply need to use the slow cooker more but with recipes that don’t cost me a more week than my monthly electric bill.
