New acquisition

So yesterday our Crock-Pot officially died. The base was pretty thrashed and the handles broke off long ago. Now the temperature switch cracked and couldn't be used to adjust. I threw out the base but kept the crock itself (want to try to use it as a souffle dish) and the lid (use it to cover eggs as we fry them). We hit Target today to get me some bras. I got those and a brand new slow cooker. It's oval and meant to hold whole chickens. I'm terribly pleased.

Today was the monthly concert by ebenbrooks and caprine at Lestat's. I went there to promote Writing Day Against the TSA and the flyers were eagerly snatched up.

Home again, home again. Steve is fixing up the TV area to have fewer cables lying about. Me, I'm typing this. Maybe tomorrow I'll cook something in my new slow cooker. Otherwise, tomorrow will be dominated by football and being inside, away from the weather.

I have one of those oval crockpots; they're outstanding. And that 'fitting in a whole chicken' thing comes in really handy when making stock!

And I applaud Writing Against The TSA Day. That sounds like a fun activity.

Thank you so much for coming last night and handing out the articles. Hopefully certain people will get the message. It may take a while, but I'm optimistic.

I've been eying those oval crock pots. Mine is pretty beat-down, but it's not yet broken, so I don't think I can justify replacing it yet. Sigh.

Apparently today's White House press conference was dominated by the TSA issue, and the press secretary said something about how the rules will evolve, and travellers' feedback will be a factor in decision-making. So yes, any way we can make our opposition (outrage!) known, it is worth doing!

One of these days I think I'm going to get a slow cooker. I'm just hesitant since I feel like I'm already lacking storage space for kitchen things. Yay for new kitchen toys!
