I find myself going in waves with using my crock pot. We are all busy but sometimes I feel like our schedule is over packed not just for a day but for a week or more at a time. My kids also like to take these times to get sick, which is a whole other ball game.
I always keep a couple of pork tenderloin roasts in our deep freezer. Pork is a great canvas for any flavor you like.
Here is one for you. It is a great comfort, fall apart tender, family meal.
