Last year I ordered a small slow cooker. I got instead one big enough to feed all the parents of the PTA. At the same price. I used it a couple of times, and it took up too much room in my small studio apartment kitchen. And it would have cost me an arm and leg to send it back. I gave it to Spike and he is thrilled with it.
Well, now my daughter wants to give me hers. She doesn't use it for just the two of them. And I did ask. "Is it small or family size?" Family size! But it is round as to oblong as was the one I received. Hopefully, with winter coming upon us fast this year, I can make some stews in it.
My daughter has been on a mission to do as much as she possibly can since my surgery. Anything to make my life a little easier. So I am grateful. She recently bought me a toaster oven. Much larger than my toaster. Not enough counter room for it. And we only would make toast with it. She has a larger one, but she uses hers for everything. Pirate and I do all our cooking from scratch. She took it back to the store and traded it off for a floor fan for Pirate's room. With the heat on, it all seems to go into his room first before it heats the rest of the apartment. She is my first born, and I love her dearly. But please, daughter ask me first if I will use it or even have room for it!
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
