When daydreaming of my future self, I always thought that I would whip up some genius meal in the crockpot that my family could just come home to. Now as a mom, wife and vegetarian, my poor crock pot sits abandoned in a cabinet that requires me to set up a ladder to access. I love making homemade soup and prefer to do them fresh on the stove and almost all of the crock pot recipes call for meat. My husband is a meat-eater so most of our nights we make a basic dish that he then adds meat to after I serve myself. Now that it's winter I am yearning for the delicious smells of dinner in the crock pot that I remember from childhood.
