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.
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.
