One of the greatest inventions ever

Who invented the CrockPot? Because whoever it was – I would like to personally thank them. Growing up – my family NEVER used a crock pot. I don’t know if it is a Portuguese thing or what, but we just did not cook with them. When A and I got engaged, a friend told me that I just had to put a crock pot on our registry – I didn’t understand what the big deal was about them, but I figured why not.

It took us a couple of months to start using it (I have this huge fear that it is just going to burn our apartment complex down so I was a little slow on giving it a shot), but after just one time, I am hooked. How could you not love throwing a bunch of stuff in a pot, letting it sit in there all day, and come home to a cooked dinner. It’s fantastic. Especially because right now with my long commute, A and I leave at 630 in morning and we do not get home until 7 – so the last thing I want to do is to start cooking. Having dinner ready and waiting for me when I get home is phenomenal.
Today, after A and I went to church, we decided to go north of the city and try to go to some Open Houses and just look around neighborhoods. So I thought it would be a perfect day to throw something in the crock pot so that when we got home we would have dinner waiting for us.
We decided on chicken.


So thank you to whomever blessed us with this fine invention. It makes the lives of all us working wives much easier 🙂

  1. I got a crock pot for my wedding too, but I have not used it yet – same fear about burning down the house – I mean really, your whole life they tell you not to leave the house with stuff on and then they invent something where you have to go against all of that!! I will have to give it a go eventually though 🙂 Your dinner looks delicious!
