Fill Crockpot Before Going Grocery Shopping.

This Sparked Me!

Before I leave to grocery shop. I clean out my refrigerator and put all the leftovers straight into my crock-pot. Add a can of low calorie soup and fat free broth and put it on my balcony. When I come home from errands, it's lifesaving, quick, tasty and a smart food choice.

I put the crock-pot on our screened in balcony in the summer to keep it cooler in the kitchen plus the added benefit of not smelling it making me hungry all day as it cooks.

    Sounds good. Why do you put the crockpot on the balcony?

    Your a genius! I rarely use my crock-pot because I am home and the smells make me hungry all day and smells up the whole house. Thank you!

    I was wondering that myself. Does it cook faster out there. emoticon

    This is interesting. I might do this! I am forever trying to use up everything in the house before I go shopping again, and it never works out that way. I have cans of beans and frozen veggies that would be great simmered in a broth.
