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.
