It's that wonderful time of year to pull out your slow cooker again! Admittedly, there are some that use their crock pot throughout the summer. It's true, the slow cooker is a great way to cook something without raising the temperature of the home. However, what usually cooks in a slow cooker?
Meats. The hubby and I don't eat a lot of meat in the summer, and if we do, it's from the grill.
Soups and stews. We rarely eat soup and never stew in the summer.
Those 3 items make up the majority of slow cooker recipes. They are all things that scream "COMFORT!!!" food. And "comfort" food almost always equates to fall and winter weather in my book.
