Yesterday I bought myself a new, red, Crock-Pot Brand 6-quart Manual Slow Cooker from Target. Had I the luxury of time I could have bought one of the NFL or Collegiate varieties. Pity. The bare-basics model I purchased cost me a whopping $25 because it was on sale; normal pricing for this model is $30.
Now that I’ve opened the box and prepped all of the food for today’s lunch I believe that I have mistakenly thought that my previous Rival Slow Cooker had a 6-quart capacity. Perhaps it was 5-quart? 4-quart? Who knows. Now I am feeling compelled to seek out a replacement ceramic insert for the older slow cooker just to have another size at my disposal.
All I need to do now is let the slow cooker do its thing, until 11:15am when I will have to add in the coconut milk, stir everything up, and let it cook for thirty minutes more.
And if you are having a party and are in need of a really large Crock Pot, just let me know.
What Did I Do Last Night?
Well, if you followed me on Twitter you’d know.
After sitting at Brass Tap Beer Bar for awhile I made the decision to drive to Masquerade and try to see Eskimeaux perform again. I wasn’t sure that there were any tickets left when I pulled out my iPhone (unfortunately still 5c) and paid $5.35 using the ParkMobile app to park across the street from the venue, but I decided to gamble. My gamble paid off because I was able get a $12 ticket and had to wait no more than twenty minutes before Eskimeaux, one of the opening bands, to play! I chuckled aloud when lead singer Gabrielle Smith mentioned that she was looking forward to eating a delicious breakfast at Home Grown this morning. Had I not have to come into the office early to prep my lunch I might have done the same.
The cherry on top was that I was out of Masquerade by 9:45pm and home before 10:15pm, giving me plenty of time to sleep. Until…
That Was An Interesting Storm
I was awaken some time before 1:00am to the sound of loud wind, and fearful that I may have heard some thing that sounded like a train, the sound most people use when describing an oncoming tornado. Fortunately I was wrong about the latter. A quick check of the old iPad showed a massive, fast moving storm, that brought with it high winds, rain, and hail. I don’t think East Atlanta got much of the latter two, but from my bed it sounded like it was a destructive storm.
Tonight, Tonight, Whoa Oh
After a successful day at work (I’m trying to psyche myself up), including getting some personal chores done, I’ll be joining ITP-Reader Stacy for some trivia. Following trivia tonight I will be doing some German homework and some Swift learning before falling asleep. I love it when a plan comes together…
