cashew chicken

People are so busy these days with family activities, work, school etc that the biggest reason I get for not cooking is time.

What I suggest to all of my clients is to make your crock pot your new best friend! It is so easy and you can just throw everything in either the night before and microwave when you get home. Scenario 2 is you can throw everything in the am and let cook on low all day so it will be nice and warm for you when you walk through the door.
