Why the crock pot obsession?

Okay, so some people have already been asking me…what’s with the crock pot obsession?

I really don’t have a crock pot obsession. What I have is a need for instant gratification. When I’m hungry, I want to eat. Now. If there is no decent meal ready, I will opt for the bag of chips in the cabinet and make dinner out of that or hop in the car and hit the Sonic down the road for a cheeseburger. In my twenties, that worked out fine. I had good genes, I was physically more active — I could eat pretty much whatever I wanted and never gain an ounce.

Now…not so much.

So by throwing dinner in the crock pot in the morning when I’m not so hungry, I am able to indulge my need for instant gratification in the evening when I am ready to eat. Dinner is ready, hot and welcoming. And much healthier than chips and cheeseburgers.

Mystery solved.

Tomorrow – day one of the new book!

Also, if anyone is interested, I was thinking of posting an excerpt of Legacy of Stone sometime this week, since so many people have been waiting so long for it. Let me know if you’re interested.

    What a great day to check in on your website! I am so excited about a new gargoyle book. Thank you so much (in advance). I know a good read is on the way.

    Oooooo, count me as interested! Was really glad to see your site pop up in my Google Alerts. Legacy’s still on my Amazon.com wishlist, even though they pulled *everything* off – info, image, etc. I still know what that spot is thanks to the pointer to Amazon.co.uk, and now I can point my note to your updated website. Yay! 🙂

    I LOVE my crock pot! I just wish I was better about using it (esp with a full time job and two kids and writing!)

      It took me a while to get good at using the crock, too, and to figure out what recipes I liked best. Here is a site where I learned a ton and got answers to all my questions from a wonderful group of crock pot experts: http://www.cafemom.com Once there, do a search on “crock pot moms” and then click on the link for the crock pot moms (from the link in the column on the right with the header “groups”) and join. It’s free and a wonderful resource. Crock potting makes writing so much easier!

      Hittin’ It looks wonderful, by the way. I’ll look for it in March!
