I’m a Work at Home Mom, But I Still Use My Crock Pot

Most of my friends work outside of their homes. That’s not unusual. There are a few of us, but, who have chosen to stay at home with our young children. We’re the minority, but still not unusual.

What should be considered unusual is the discovery recently uncovered among my group of busy female friends. ‘We-who-work-at-home’ utilize our crock pots approximately 75% more frequently than those who have traditional j.o.b.s.! This statistic is of course in no way official, just a quick sampling of local gals; but a shocker nonetheless. We also thought the new ‘cupcake carrier’ was awesome. Go figure.

Why then, do the ‘moms-who-work’ choose to neglect the one piece of equipment capable of solving a multitude of meal-plotting/creation problems with just the flip of a button? After a brief survey, I have concluded that their error in meal prep judgment stems from merely a lack of information. Even in the twenty-first century, a large number of intelligent mothers still reckon that the lowly crock pot stashed away in their attics is useful only on occasions calling for ‘meatball appetizers’ or baked beans to take to ‘Aunt Shirley’s’ house on Labor Day. What? How can this be? Naturally this information gave way to many shouts of ‘oh, no’ and ‘my goodness’ from the ‘moms-who-stay-home’ but yet use their slow cookers religiously.

I too used to be one of the ‘quick cookers’ who worked away from home. During those years I probably used my crock pot two or three times a year. We also ate way more quick-food in those days than we do now. Running around like I did from job to home to kid activity, it’s a wonder we weren’t malnourished. Dominoes did a very brisk business on our street as well.

Strangely enough, many folks believe that since I’m home all day, just playing with kids and checking my email (yeah right,) meals should be a total breeze. Heck, to hear them tell it I should be preparing gourmet meals everyday with a smile on my face while sporting a pearl necklace and high heels. Again I say, ‘what?’ Hello, twenty-first century here people. If we’re working at home these days, most likely you’re finding us not only minding our young children, but simultaneously running successful home businesses. Without some effective meal plotting, we’d still be keeping the pizza delivery guy running in style.

So how does the crock pot make life simpler? Not rocket science folks. I don’t even spend time plotting out a month’s worth of meals. As long as I have a excellent supply and variety of meats and other staples in my kitchen, along with some simple crock pot recipes that my family will really eat, I’m set. Getting it all started in the morning takes anywhere from five to ten minutes. While I’m making coffee and listening to my small ones delight in yet again another episode of ‘Dora’, I plop the ingredients into the pot, and after putting the lid on and setting the button on low, I’m done. There’s nothing more to reckon about, and my house smells fantastic all day long.
