Yesterday I had my first kitchen “catastrophe.” It’s wasn’t horrible, all things considered, but enough to make Luke and I both laugh for a while.
I cooked taco meat up, and transferred it to my crock pot to let it simmer all afternoon and be piping hot and ready to eat by the time Luke got home from work. I turned it on low, knowing it would get hot enough by dinnertime. Luke got home and we were heading out to the grocery store before dinner to do our shopping for the week, and I stirred the meat before we left and tasted it to make sure I’d put enough seasoning in. Hmmm…that’s funny…it’s slightly cold. So I turned it up on high.
We got back from the grocery store and once again I stirred the meat. What in the world? It’s even colder than before!
Ahem. I forgot to plug it in.
At least Luke has a wonderful sense of humor. :) I’ll remember to plug it in tonight, I promise.
Here’s today’s picture, taken January 5th, down at Bethany. We have had the weirdest, warmest weather lately! It’s been in the 70s and 80s! I was hoping for just a little bit of snow, at least. :P
