Today I shall go to Target and purchase a 4qt crockpot. Every circular in the Sunday paper had red stuff advertised. If it is red, it is advertised in one or more of the pages. Which works out well for me, I love red.
We simply are not eating as well as we could. Plain and simple.
I am learning to cook for a family that does not share in the standard American dream of, working 8-5 M-F, home for dinner together. I have not learned what I need to learn to make this work out better for us, as far as meals are concerned. Honey is real good about opening a can of chili to eat, but the poor guy is eating a lot of chili here lately.
And I have said it before, I need to use the pressure cooker as well. I tend to forget about all my kitchen equipment, and fall back on old habits. I also will be happier when the kitchen has been updated and I do not have to search in one of many places throughout the house to find a piece of equipment. Currently kitchen equipment is located in the kitchen, the linen closet in the hall, the coat closet in the living room, the pantry storage area at the end of the hall, and the closet in the Beatles/TV room. I tend to be of low vision when I come home after a day at work, and only see what is before me; forgetting all the rest.
I have a 4qt crockpot, a round one. The gasket that insulates the heating unit from the crock is deteriated, and it is a concern to me to keep using it. But I will keep the crock and lid. They will be used as ovenware, maybe even to bake the no knead bread recipes.
Time to change the linens on the bed, shower and get dressed and go out for a while to see the world and purchase that red crockpot.
Have a great Sunday,
