Behold the magic that is the Crock Pot!
I had no idea the love affair I would have with this item until I was living on my own. While mine is an older, more 70s looking unit (complete with orange and olive dancing motif) it gets the job done.
From tortellini soup to chili to lasagna to teriyaki chicken the thing has yet to let me down. My house smells like delicious stew because I tossed in a can of tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery and potatoes. Nothing better after a Monday then to come home to a home cooked meal that took less than 5 minutes to make.
Long live the Crock Pot! Guaranteed to make Monday simma down.
