Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Freezer Kit

Does the thought of prep, freeze, dump, crock and eat tempt you? If the photo doesn’t, then maybe fix it and forget it will. I set the timer for six hours on low and my crock pot does its thing. I mean it cooks the delicious one dish meal while I’m running errands, circles around children, folding laundry and blogging. What more could I ask for?

Hopefully, I have a thawed bag of cooked rice or noodles which I’ve frozen. I microwave a thawed bag for five minutes on 70% power and I’ve got dinner on the table in FIVE minutes when I walk in the door. Oh the pleasure of a freezer kit.
