Life is a Crock…Pot…That is…


This morning…I rolled out…dark and early…so I would have plenty of time…to get all dolled up…for…picture day at school…and…still cook dinner…

I love the fact…that I can literally cook dinner…in the comfort of my pajamas…using none other than my trusty slow cooker…AKA…Crock Pot…so this morning…I started what will be a barbequed roast…when I get home this afternoon…then…all I will have to do…is cook a couple of veggies…and voila…dinner is born…

Bertha…decided to get her two cents worth in…as I cooked…saying…that this meal…the roast…and veggies…reminded her of my life…

Huh…maybe I wasn’t hearing clearly so early in the morning…but…how could a pot roast remind her of my life…

Of course she was eager to explain…reminding me…that some things in life…are better…when…I allow them…to cook slowly…like the roast…let them develop over time…don’t rush them…and…some things…like the veggies…are better…when…I cook them quickly…just jump in…and…get ‘em done…

She went on to chide me…for…wanting to rush things…for wanting everything…now…she said…it’s like mashed potatoes…I might like the convenience of instant…but I sure don’t like the results…

Hmmm…I guess…I’m slowing down today…letting things happen at their own pace…and…maybe…peeling a few potatoes to go with that roast…

PS…I’m sure we’ll talk more about…speeding up…in the near future…she wouldn’t let me off that easily…

    • It sure is, Christy…I do get impatient some days, though! I hope picture day was successful…I need a new name badge and I do hate the thoughts of wearing some of the ones I’ve taken in the past!
