Crock Pot Habits

After a good ten years of being advised to utilize a crock pot, I have finally paid heed.  Last night we had sausage and pepper pasta and tortilla soup is on the menu tonight.  I am obsessed with this thing.  So my question is...do you leave your crock pot unattended?  All day?  Usually I'm home but I left it for a while today without really worrying about it.  However, some people do (and, admittedly, that is one of the reasons I never used it in the past).  They say it uses as much electricity as a lightbulb, but I don't put a gallon of liquid in my lamps...

It took me almost 4 years to leave my house with the crock pot going without worrying about it the whole time... baby steps :)

The liquid part would be a problem if it were on or off! Your fridge or dryer being left plugged in = way bigger issue. And we do that every single day. Embrace the crock pot! And buy that cookbook I posted about. It's the bomb. And won't turn your crock pot into one : )
