I LOVE my slow cooker, and agree with previous posters: you can totally live out of a crock pot, and enjoy it!
I've made roasted chicken and potatoes, chili, soup, rice and beans (as a meal or as tortilla stuffing), oatmeal, apple crisp, pot roast, meatballs, lasagna, etc, etc. etc. There are some great blogs on the internet for crock potting.
There was one lady who did a different crock pot recipe every day for a year - yes, 365 days in a row! I think she ended up writing a cookbook from her experience, but you can find the blog and get the recipes there for free if you just want to try. I think one of her kids was gluten intolerant, so she even had adjustments for that.
good luck - I hope you have fun and are happy with the repairs when they're done!
