So, I have reached a new low. I actually burned something in the crock pot. I didn’t even realize it was possible.
I use the crock pot a lot, owing to our crazy schedule. I rarely have time to cook dinner. I find myself using the slow cooker at least once a week, so that the food is ready during the 90-second window we have for eating.
I put in some chicken and gravy at around 1 pm, and we ate dinner at about 5:45. Then, Brooklyn and I left for art class and I forgot all about the dinner. After class, we sat down to watch a little tv. When I went upstairs to go to bed at around 10:30, I discovered the baked on gravy. It had cooked an additional 5 hours after we ate dinner!! How gross!
Generally, I believe the crock pot makes my life easier, but in this case, all I got was a giant mess to clean up. And, I think you guys know me well enough to know that I hate cleaning giant messes!! Ugh!
