Thanks for the great advise. Looks like I will be buying a crockpot as soon as I can fit it into my budget.

I'm single and have 3 crock pots and am going to buy a larger one, 6 or 7 qt oval will be my next crockpot. Yes you can use frozen veggies, just don't cook them as long.

I just wanted to add that you can use frozen veggies in your crock pot recipes. In my mind fresh is always nicer, but frozen will certainly do just fine. And if you use frozen veggies and find them getting overcooked you can always add them in toward the middle of your cooking time.

There was much rejoicing!

I love my crockpot and you can buy a little one. I got both but i don't like to leave any electric things on when i'm gone so i put what i am cooking for the next day in the evening and then refrig it the next morning and put it in my bowl or plate and warm it up ! Just my idea !emoticon

The Lord is my strength and i know i can do better with the Lords help. The Lord laid it on my heart to start a team called GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANYBODY THAT WANTS HELP TO LOSE THEIR WEIGHT TO JOIN . I KNOW I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT THE LORDS HELP !

Yes it would be great investment for even one person and freezing the left overs are awesome.I own 2 crockpots and they are both 6 litre ones and I always freeze the left over in to dishes that are microwaveable in and are a serving for one person this way when I am not at home my children can microwave and healthy and awesome dinner.

emoticon Hi,

I just joined the team, but to be honest, I don't even own a crockpot yet. However, I am thinking about buying one. I'm just not sure if it's the right decision, because I live on my own. Most people that are using the crockpot, seem to be cooking for a family or at least a two person household.

So my question is, does a crockpot make sense if you are cooking for just one person? What about freezing or re-heating the leftovers? I really like the fact that I could be cooking my dinner while at university, and I've seen some great recipes for soups, stews and veggies. But I won't buy a crockpot, if it just doesn't make any sense to use it for just one person. Any advice?

Another question I have is, would I be able to use frozen veggies or do they have to be fresh?

Thanks in advance for all your help.
