like magic

I had some really big plans for my shiny new crock pot. We've all heard the tales. Toss in this and that before you go to work and let the savory smells greet you at the end of the day. Pour yourself a big glass of wine, adjust the seasonings in your magic crock pot and call the family because it's time to eat! Sadly, I dropped my brand new crock pot and now it's sitting on the floor all busted up, a mocking reminder of the culinary conveniences that might've been. This is the soup I would've made in my magic crock pot. It's one of our family favorites. Back to my trusty stock pot. Dazzle factor? Low.

  1. pooh Shari - a big ole ruffer snuffer! Sorry you dropped your pot and to top it off you probably had to spend extra time cleaning it all up. But there is nothing better than the stock pot!
