**TIME SAVING HINT: A great time saver is the use of a crockpot liner. Gone are the days of soaking your crockpot overnight then using a great deal of elbow grease to get it clean. Crockpot liners are a busy mom’s dream. You simply throw the bag away and rinse the crockpot. Easy peasy!
I always like to make recipes that lend themselves to leftovers for lunch the next day. That in itself will save me as much as $10/day which as you will notice is almost exactly what the meal costs showing that meals like this can actually pay for themselves.
For this recipe I shopped at my local Aldi. I did not take advantage of any sales.
