When A Slow Cooker Isn't The Answer...
Wednesday, I decided chicken would be a nice supper... Having an attack of the lazies, I decided to cook it in a crock pot, or slow cooker. I made a platform of Yukon Gold potatoes, seasoned a couple of large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and called it good..I would sauce it later in the cooking process. I went back to the kitchen, wondering why I didn't smell the aroma of cooking poultry- to find I had four settings on my fancy, new slow cooker- not three! Old one had off, low and high..new one has off, warm, low, and high... To make a long story shorter- It wasn't on at all! I put the sauce on, and jacked to high, and called my wife coming home from work to tell her she could take her time! We ate an hour later than planned, but it was pretty good!
None of us are perfect, me being one of them- but sometimes knowing what to do when you screw things up is part of learning to be a good cook!
My son is coming over for steak fajitas and a trip to Sam's Club- hope I get out of there for less than $100!!!
