I was a lot younger and had more time. And it seemed to me waiting several hours for my soup, when I could have it in an hour, was a waste of time.

Now, I learned that you can do so much more with a slow cooker.

For example, I LOVE making my oatmeal in the slow cooker and have it waiting for me in the morning. This gets my day started right: no rush, no worries and waking up to the aroma of cinnamon (or other spices you love) in the morning is priceless.
