It's all in the bag

Here's a time-saving cooking tip I thought I'd share with you today. We all know how convenient it is to use a slow cooker, right? Just put your food in it in the morning, turn it on low and at dinner time, you've got your meal ready. What could be easier?

Evidently, someone thought that clean-up could be easier and I'm thrilled with their invention.

Several months ago, I started using these slow cooker bags and found them to be the next best thing since sliced bread. Have you seen them at the store? They look like this:



You place the bag inside the slow cooker, put you food in it and cook it as usual, and the best part comes after the meal. When it's time for clean-up, you just throw away the bag! The inside of the cooker stays clean so no more soaking and scrubbing. Pretty smart invention if you ask me.

Now, why can't I think of things like that?!

Yes I have tried these as well. Makes cleanup much easier. Love my crock pot, am using it tomorrow. While we're in church our chicken will be happily cooking away! Enjoy your day!

Hey There! Just checking in to say "Thanks" for stopping in the Sista-Hood!

I love your tea room - I'm a collector of tea pots - When I find my digital camera I'll take a pic of my tea pot light fixture that hangs over my dining room table. I think you'll like it!

Have a Merry Christmas!
It will be less the mess with the Slow cooker liners....they are neat!
Sending blessings from Georgia!

These look like a very good idea. I like cooking my turkeys in bags, would probably really like this too. Nice and tidy!

Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment for me. These slow cooker bags sounds like they were made just for me. Most meals it is just hubby and me so I don't usually have a need to pull out the larger of my two slow cookers, except when I know I won't feel like a lot of complicated clean up. It is then that I pull out the larger one simply because it has a removable crock cooker that can be just submerged into the dish water. The smaller of the two can not be submersed which equals cleanup headache. Nothing can put a damper on a wonderful meal like a complicated cleanup. I will have to look for a box of these when I go to the store again.... I have a nice prok roast waiting for New Years Day!

May your Christmas be blessed with the warmth and love of the season.

I LOVE these things! I make a ro-tel dip with them in the crock. I also add about an inch of water UNDER the bag and it keeps the cheese from scorching.
