Last year, my then fiance, my mom and I decided to do the Black Friday madness, we stood out in freezing temperatures waiting for Target to open (that was my first and last time) I stood in line only to run to the bathroom as soon as we were let inside. We didn’t find anything we were looking for, everything we wanted was already gone. However, later that day my mom went out with my dad and they bought us a crock-pot for when we got married. Forward almost a year and the crock pot was still in its original packaging, untouched and forgotten in our storage. Until one day I came across this recipe: Mexican Slow Cooked Carnitas and I had to give it a try.
Let’s just say after this recipe the hubster is hooked to the crock-pot. I think he might’ve forgotten how to cook the regular way, he wants to put everything in the crock-pot and I am not complaining, it’s easier on both of us. We mix all the ingredients, set the time and we go to work and come home to a house that smells like heaven and a warm meal. Who ever invented the crock-pot, THANK YOU.
To all you busy people out there, if you do not have a crock pot, please do yourselves a favor and buy one. Trust me you will not regret it.
