Are you ready to be so proud of me?! After a year and a half of collecting dust, my crockpot was actually used this weekend! I found a yummy recipe here and decided to try it out
So I pulled out my crockpot, washed the dust off (cause I wasn't kidding about the dust!)...
...and put all my ingredients in (kinda looks gross...but just wait, it gets better!)
I kept thinking about my crockpot through all 3 hours of church. I was worried that the chicken would still be raw (cause I've had a bad slash funny-now-that-I-think-about-it situation involving feeding my bishop raw chicken), so I was way super excited when I came home and the chicken was perfect. It shredded easily and tasted yummy
...TJ liked it too!
Overall, here are my thoughts on the crockpot:
A. It was awesome that I only had to clean one thing (cause not having a dishwasher is lame)
B. It was awesome that lunch was ready as soon as I walked in the door.
C. It was awesome that I didn't have to stand over the stove, stir anything, or defrost stuff.
In summary, my crockpot is awesome.
