if I started a cooking blog it would be called ‘Burnt Offerings’…

… because cooking is hard. It’s a minor miracle I haven’t died of scurvy or malnutrition yet. If I ever get re-married I need to find one of those patient and understanding types of men to say soothing and comforting things to me …

I burned a roast in the crock pot. I’m actually amazed at my own culinary ineptitude. How can you burn anything in a crock pot? A crock pot is almost magical – insert meat, switch on, come home from work 8 hours later, eat juicy meat.

This is clearly a new low, even for me.

    Even better than “one of those patient and understanding types of men to say soothing and comforting things”, might be one of those patient and understanding types of men WHO COOK TOO!

  • Gayle

    Put the beer in the crock pot with the roast…a few spices…YUM!

  • Michael

    What no “Holy Cast” offs?

  • Mimi

    I giggled out loud. Sorry. Have you tried the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day theory? I love it, I keep dough in the fridge, put yummy stuff on top of the dough, and bake. Easy peasy.

    I would totally watch that show. I’ve burned stuff in the crock pot before, too…. let’s pause for a moment to show our respect for those roasts and (in my case) sausages, who’ve gone before us.

    Fear not.  I’ve been cooking since I was 17 (30 years now)…and I’ve given my fair share of ‘soothing aromas by fire to the Lord’ via the crock-pot altar of burnt offerings.

    I feel for you!  I have burnt soup, melted spatulas into eggs and pancakes and set tea bags on fire making iced tea.  (The good news is there is hope… I’ve gotten better!)  🙂

    The lime in your gin and tonic has protected you from scurvy. Also, you’re safe from malaria.
