I’ll be perfectly honest with everyone right now. I have writers block/motivation block. I want to curl up with a book and stay there, needless to say, I’ve read a few books in the past week or so. Then yesterday getting ready to start supper, I discovered my slow cooker had moved on to a worse place. It was headed for the garbage. Not good.
We went grocery shopping last night with the intent to buy a new slow cooker, I’ll admit I almost forgot about it TWICE! Walked right past on at Costco then remembered. But it stayed there, I couldn’t bring myself to pay $49.99 on it. It was the perfect size, digital actual Crock Pot brand, but I’m cheap.
Side note: Have you ever noticed how many different options there are for slow cookers? Different brands, sizes, styles? There can be a lot to think about.
At Walmart we were headed the check out when I remembered for the second time. All I can say is I am so happy I waited to get one there. I am now the proud owner of two, yes TWO, slow cookers again. WOOHOO! I had been thinking about getting a smaller one for doing side dishes in plus we need a larger one for full meals.
Hubby asked me how many slow cookers we’ve had in the 5 1/2 years we’re been together. Hmmm…. probably too many. The “pot” ceramic always ends up broken or cracked. But we used them at least a few times a week, every week. I love throwing something into it and at supper time it is ready to go without a worry.
