Dinner is in the slow cooker. It should be good and a nice meal for a stormy way. We didn't get much snow but now we are having freezing rain and the winds have really picked up. We are expecting heavy rain this afternoon which will cause a lot of flooding in the low lying areas. We live up on a hill so we have nothing to worry about. Most businesses have decided not to even open today. It is a good day to stay inside if you don't have to go out. Do you use a slow cooker? If so, what is your favorite meal to cook in it?

We have a slow cooker, but I usually only use it when we are taking a dish to a potluck as it holds so much. We're having chicken and dumplings for supper tonight-comfort food on a cold day. I hope that you stay safe during this storm, you are really getting a little bit of everything aren't you? The sun is shining here today, but it is bitterly cold and windy out.

I wish I could convince the kids that chicken cacciatore is a delicious meal. It has too many vegetables that they hate and *gasp!* chicken with bones! I'm using the Instant Pot a lot more these days, but I still enjoy using my slow cooker from time to time. I make kalua pork in it, plus I like to make steel cut oats for breakfast in the slow cooker. I get slow cooker liners from Dollar Tree to keep the oats from sticking to the crock.

@Happy2BeMe Oh, they're wonderful! I've even been known to put all my dinner ingredients in the liner and to store it all in the fridge overnight (with a twist tie at the top keeping it all closed). In the morning I put the whole thing in the slow cooker, remove the twist tie, pull the sides, down put the lid on, and let it cook on low all day. They are so convenient!
i'm not really familiar with the word slow cooker... we use pressure cooker...maybe its just the same.. i dont know... we mostly cook meat in the pressure cooker...the name of the dishes are in local language so i dont know the exact name for it in english..

I do use a slow cooker..Alot of things are good cookied in it. I made a homemade pea soup a couple of weeks ago, my favorite thing I ever cooked it though was spaghetti and Italian sausage. It was excellent. Chicken Cacciatore sounds good.

Yes, I've had a slow cooker for a long time, but never used it. A couple months ago, I got it down off a shelf and made some chicken stew. It was delicious, so now I use our slow cooker often! Probably our favorite meal was a pork roast, with potatoes, carrots, and onions. Ribs are good, too!
