What Happens When You Forget To Turn The Crockpot Off….

……..before going to work?   You end up with some super tender awesome meat.  Ha…and I was so worried that I would come home to burnt stew.  It was well done and delicious over some mashed sweet potatoes.

This is the road coming out of our driveway yesterday at 11 AM…..


This was the driveway behind me….


After I got to the main road everything was clear…..


I’m assuming that everything is clear and dry when I head out to Catlett in a couple of hours.  At least I hope so, got to chase a motor coach. 

Yesterday the hot water came back on in the bathroom 30 minutes after I posted it.  Weird!!  This morning it was 5 degrees and the hot water in the bathroom was fine.

When I go to bed tonight, I will have finished 7 days of not smoking.  What a long week.  I do hope it gets better with time.  I miss it!

Time for one more cup a…


…….then I’m gonna hit the road. :)


  1. My Mom and Grandma swore by crockpots but the first time I used my crockpot, in my own home, I worried I'd come back to a burned house. Now, I've got several crockpot cookbooks. =)

    Oooh, that coffee has me Jonesing for another cup of my own!

  2. CJsMonnie.....I love them and have one large one and one small one. I've heard of people making cakes in them???
    Yeah, I know....I'm at work and wish I had another eyeball open slamming cup of mud :)

  3. As long as you have a crockpot on low, it's pretty hard to burn anything.

  4. @Tango Making cakes in them? I'm missing a cookbook!

    LOL I'll have to remember that one (the eyeball part).

    @Donna I was raised to lock all the doors and windows, blow candles out twice and never leave anything on. Which is weird considering the family crock-pot history but I digress. I thought it would go "poof" like a coffee pot when it runs out of liquid. lol

  5. Donna....I left if on for 5 hours on high. Luckily I had added enough liquid, else it would have probably been close to concrete consistency.

    CJsMonnie...lol, I read making cakes somewhere. I do know that someone on here was cooking steel cut oatmeal in a crockpot over night.
    lol....blowing candles out twice. :)

  6. I bet if I put anything in a crockpot I'd manage to burn it. :D

  7. Joe...nope, I think it's pretty much LL Cool Joe Proof!!! :)

  8. @Tango Making homemade concrete was another worry. I was trying to impress my son with my culinary skills not my ability to replace heavy machinery with common household appliances. lol

    Steel cut oatmeal in a crockpot? Something to Google. The "steel cut" part. lol


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
