Not All It's Crock-ed Up to Be
Monday, September 25, 2006
Tried to cook Panamian Pork Stew this weekend, and by "cook" I mean "put a bunch of shit in the crock pot and wait while it does the cooking for 4 hours while I sit and watch Divine Design and make fun of the way she says "iverything" instead of "everything" because she is Canadian.


Turns out that I can't even make a Crock-Pot meal well. The sweet potatoes were mushy (should have used regular potatoes) and the pork was tough (should have used beef). Aaaah! Even the industry-approved recipes are out to get me.

At least I didn't set off the fire alarm.

Other random things accomplished this weekend

- Purchased dog's "outfits" for possible holiday card photoshoot. Includes a red, satin bowtie and a santa hat with long, white beard attached.

- Played game of Life with some friends for the first time in a LONG time. I forgot how much fun that game is! I retired with a paltry $632,000. Given my financial skills, I see this as a harbinger of things to come. Anyone want to make me a budget?

- Joined Netflix. Soon to arrive will be "Akeelah and The Bee," and "Bride & Prejudice." Stop laughing.

- Took dog to vet where I was praised for my superior skills at keeping another living being alive. (probably because it doesn't involve cooking)

- Finished a product review for DeLush on a set of vegan, organic shampoo/conditioner. It makes my hair real purty - see below.
