Why I have two slow cookers going early in the day......

My "What's for dinner?" survival plan I learned from Children's Literature: Always be six steps ahead of the rest of the family.

I like to go ahead of the wolves and have the slow cookers started before they even know what happened.

"Then, in a very sweet tone of voice, the wolf asked the little pig to meet him at Mr. Jone's turnip field the next morning. "All right," said the little pig. The little pig got up early and was back home safe and cooking his turnips by the time the wolf arrived.
Next, the wolf asked the little pig to meet him by a very nice apple tree. "All right," said the little pig. But, again, he got there early and hid in the tree while the bad wolf looked for him.
Finally, the wolf asked the pig to go with him to the fair. So the little pig got ready before sunrise and was there when the fair opened. He had lots of fun on the merry-go-round. When he started for home, he bought a crockpot to take along. Then he saw the big, bad, hungry wolf coming to the fair, late, as usual. Into the slow cooker leaped the little pig and the crockpot rolled safely past the wolf right into the little pig's house."

I love this! First of all, think this totally makes you Mom of the Year for being so on the ball in the a.m. Secondly, I have oft wanted to do this but thought, no, that would just be too crazy...thanks for normalizing :)
