Hello once again Readers!!! Fall is finally here (in Florida)!! The air is cool. The leaves rustle in the faint breeze. My sweaters are being pulled out and washed! And this weekend we will be carving pumpkins…what!! I digress. So I have recently become obsessed with this nifty gadget called the crock-pot (perfect for a fall attitude). For those of you who have yet to experience this, what the *bleep* are you thinking! It’s like the Holy Grail! It is the missing link! It is the reason I get out of bed in the morning (to throw the ingredients in and turn it on).If you are an on-the-goer, then this is definitely something that needs to be added into your daily arsenal (alongside of Red Bull, a good book, and Advil). Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook. The sizzling sound butter makes when it hits the pan. The fresh spicy scent of freshly chopped garlic. The sound of steel slicing through the many layers of an onion. It’s all mouth-watering and wonderful…but there’s something about a crock-pot that just goes beyond the power of a saute pan.
No, I’m being serious! A crock-pot is the epitome of multitasking. It can hold all of your food groups and provide you with a hearty meal. And something about fall just screams “lets see how much we can cram into one pot”. It’s really quite fantastic.
That being said, I found this on Pinterest: 365 days of crock-pot ideas for every kind of meal. Can you imagine the possibilities? I’m like freaking out over here. Okay, so maybe I’m not, but I had to have something to write about today and the lovely smell of potatoes and meat melding together inside my house was just as inspiring as the star chart I have recently begun studying for my next project that I think I am going to attempt for NaNo WriMo. I am also writing, From the Embers, which is in the baby stages, so it will be my first time trying to tackle two projects at once. We shall see.
I’m not making any promises, that’s for sure. I am just simply…exploring my options.
Any who, have a fantastic day, Readers. It’s the perfect day for a jog/walk (which I am going to do next). Get your butt up and get some fresh air and think about a crock-pot meal or NaNo for those who are joining.
Question of the day: Do you have a recipe you’d like to share?
Echelon out ♥
