My Slow Cooker’s Partner in the Winter – the Bread Maker
In winter my slow cooker has a partner. They are always out together. They go together like bread and butter and by saying that it’s almost correct because it is my BREAD MAKER. They are both such time savers and really if I didn’t have the bread maker then I wouldn’t try and make it myself. You can make bread in the slow cooker too but as I have the bread maker I can do the whole meal at once.
I love to make soups in winter and fresh hot bread is just the ultimate accompaniment. I can set and forget both of them, but I must admit the bread doesn’t take as long to cook unless I set the Programmable Crock Pot for the time the bread will be ready. I then have both cooked at the same time and ready to serve. The smells coming out of that kitchen are just hard to explain, especially when its a week day and I return home to a house smelling like heaven.
It takes me back to the days when I was young and I would walk in the front door from school to a warm house and the comforting aromas of home cooking. I have to thank my mother for that as she was always a good cook. She cooked for 8 people for many years so home cooking was the most economical way to go, and there was not much take away at that time either. I think I have just admitted I’m old here though….oops.
The bread machine and the crock pot/slow cooker are two great appliances I wouldn’t be without especially in winter so, if you have that bread maker stored away, get it out or if you don’t have one you can buy one at Amazon at a reasonable price right now.
