For the Love of Crock-Pots
May 10, 2012
Do you love something? I am kind of at the age where I don’t love too many things. I love my family and friends, but I’ve reached the stage when I know loving people is where my heart is and getting attached to materialistic things doesn’t matter; well not too much, unless we’re talking crock-pots.
Yes, I have to say that I love my crock-pot. YUP! Those adorable one-pot plug-in goodies are the best. I love them because there is nothing like walking into my home after a long, hard day at work and smelling my crock-pot wafting yummy scents all through the house. My crock-pot gets a lot of use year around. While many people are firing up their grills this time of the year, I am still plugging in my trusty crock pot.
It’s kind of an obsessed type of love, but it is what it is. So what! It’s an inanimate object, but I don’t care. My crock-pots are getting old, but so am I. They have age spots, but so do I. My crock-pots and I have had a long, truly connected relationship. I rely on them to cook well, and they rely on me to clean them well. From the words of Emeril Lagasse after showing a well prepared one pot meal, "It’s a beautiful thing."
The library has only increased my love for my crock-pots. It has fabulous ONE POT, CROCK-POT, SLOW COOKER cookbooks. Come on in and browse our 641.58 section for our mouth-watering cookbooks for your cooker.
