Crockpots and I, to be honest, haven't had the best of relationships. I mean it's fun at first, and we get along for a while. But then it always ends badly. I like to say it's not me, it's them. Remember this one? Shortly after, I was lucky enough to receive a free one. This particular crockpot had a hairline fracture in the ceramic dish. As time went on, I pressed my luck. "One more dinner before this thing breaks in two!" It lasted.....just long enough for the silver and black beauty featured above to arrive.
So far, we're getting along swimmingly*. I have a feeling this relationship has lasting power.
*I have never, in fact, used the word "swimmingly" before now. I can see why.
