  • Slow-cookers offer good option for tasty meals

    I have had lots of visitors lately, and I have had to plan menus that are easy to prepare and quick. One particular family member flew in from California late in the afternoon.  We had plans for 7:00 p.m. and they had not had anything to eat on the plane. Actually, they had been given a menu to choose from (they had to pay for their meal), but everything they chose, the flight attendant said they didn’t have. Consequently, they had nothing to eat. It pays to plan ahead.
