I work alot too and hate to come home & cook at the end of the day, I like to cook a whole chicken (or two) in my crockpot on the weekends, let it cool & debone it and then you can make all the yummy sounding recipies listed above, and you have chicken for salads, to make chicken salad w/ etc. Pot roast is VERY easy in the crockpot, add your roast, seasonings, 1 can FF chicken broth (yes chicken, not beef) and pot to rim w/ water. Oh, add your veggies too, unless you are doing carrots (they get very mushy), turn it on low and off to work you go. When you get home, all you need to do is heat up some veggies or grab a salad & you are done.
Hope this helps
