The pantry is bare & I'm not about to venture out in this freezing weather so I consulted google for dinner ideas. We just happened to have all the ingredients for the first recipe I found when I typed in "Crock Pot Recipe with Chicken." Chicken, ketchup, onions, and cola (fortunately, we keep a stash of Diet Coke here for when my mom visits). It may turn out disgusting but hey, dinner will be ready when HeRoos comes home & I don't have to leave the house.
Which brings me to the most important part of this post- Time Saving Kitchen Ideas! There are a couple things I've discovered that make cooking much more convenient. I'll share if you will!
If I would've made this discovery sooner, there would be less time spent scrubbing burners.
* Put a little bit of olive oil in the pot of water before boiling pasta. It prevents the water from boiling over & the pasta isn't as sticky.
* I try to keep this in our fridge at all times. We used to keep fresh garlic in the pantry but it smelled up the place and often went bad before we used it. Instead of peeling and crushing, this is fast and I think it tastes just as good.
