Don't ever make chili in the crock pot and then forget and leave the leftover stuff in there until a week later. It may get a bit nasty. (But still not as bad as the stinky socks) Don't ask me how I know this either. Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't ever try out a new recipe from a famous gourmet cook and try it out on family when their tastes are much simpler. Hillbilly simple. ;)
What a gorgeous day! It's in the 60's here and it's just sunny and beautiful. It's supposed to be like this up until Monday and it's fine with me, especially after 4 days of on and off rain. I've been hanging out all the laundry and my clothesline is full. It is kind of satisfying to be hanging out clothes in the sunshine while the leaves are fluttering down from the trees and birds are singing in the background. Speaking of leaves, if anyone wants to come help me rake up millions of them, let me know please. I'll make homemade oatmeal cookies if you do.
Since it was just Thanksgiving and we had turkey it made me think of a turkey I cooked years ago. It was summertime and it was not unusual for me to cook a turkey on the gas barbecue grill. Yes it can be done and it's easy. Anyhow it was done and I went to bring it in and did not notice that some of the juice spilled out of the pan just as I was putting it down. The whole thing slid across the table in the juice and didn't stop until it reached the other side and hit the top of the chair. It was so funny and was like it was happening in slow motion. This is just one of many crazy things I've done when it comes to cooking!
