The idea of making a traditionally time consuming dish, like spaghetti and meatballs, does not normally appeal to me.
I do not love the fact that I have to stay home for hours, babysitting a bubbling pot, frankly, nor do I have the time.
There's always an errand or carpool calling me, unfortunately, even on a Sunday.
For meals that require that much of my undivided attention, I turn to my crock pot. It's an easy way to cheat and get delicious results.
