I love my crock pot! It is an amazing tool for efficiency and bulk cooking. I usually make this recipe when I know my schedule is going to get crazy and limit the time I have to cook for myself. I keep half of it in the fridge to eat over a few days, and freeze the rest in individual servings in quart-size freezer bags. I stack them flat on the freezer shelves and pull them out to thaw and reheat on busy days.
