Too Hot For The Oven

I just barely remembered to plop the roast in the slow cooker and drown it in beer and onions in time. Thank goodness because today it’s too hot to turn on the oven, or even use the stove much.

Speaking of slow cookers, I want a new one. I generally say “need” instead of “want,” but it’s not really technically a need.

Our slow cooker isn’t the nicest model and it’s getting a little old. Its glass lid is chipped and it has ugly, ugly vegetable drawings decorating it. It gets the job done, but it doesn’t have a timer, or automatically switch to the “keep warm” setting, and it definitely couldn’t be described as sleek or modern.

In just a couple of short weeks I’ll be attending school full time and the whole family will be out of the house from 8:30 to 5:30 or 6 in the evening. I’m going to need to use the slow cooker a bit here and there if we’re going to stay well-fed and sane. I might just have to buy a new one. I might’ve just been checking out reviews all evening too.
