This post, from December 2009 has new meaning. New meaning because yet another slow cooker has passed. It became a cracked pot. Slow cooked meals for two years in the fancy pot with the timer. This is a big deal because I depend on that slow cooker many times a week. Plus there’s the twice monthly slow cooker batch cooking. Time for a new one. But, thankfully unlike two years ago, the coffee pot still holds its own…
It is with mixed emotions that we recognize the passing of two great pots. First, our faithful crock pot of two years. You gave us deliciosity at least 104 times or more.
We bid you goodbye when you started to boil and fry. Our meals were no longer slow cooked.
And on the same day your replacement arrived, all shiny and new…
…Ye ol’ trusty coffee pot produced – sludge stew. EW! Though two men tore you apart and studied your very heart, alas… they could not save you.
Breakdowns and repairs usually come ‘round here in twos. So to two former pots… we now bid you adieu.
And for the Christmas present, dear family, we say thank you.
Then we’re off to start a new brew!
Counting the gifts of appliances. Those household helpers that help fed and infuse caffeine. Plus…
- little, heart-shaped leaves appearing on the red bud in the front yard
- irises with buds ready to burst, turning their long stems toward the sun
- children singing in big church
- a glorious weekend of friends, song, encouragement, challenge and renewal at Apologia Live
So what type of new slow cooker do you think we should get this time around? Should I get a basic, programmable slow cooker like I’ve enjoyed (loved that thing) the last two years or a customizable crock pot with photos? Please share any slow cooker opinions!
