what a crock

my hopes were high that a much-hyped ice storm would hit last night and force us to work from home (best.office.ever) today but, alas, there was no commuting treachery this morning and so off to the real office i went.


the day was not a total bust, though, because i made delicious pork chops for dinner in my new crock pot. this was my second crock pot outing and i have to say, i am a convert. i love coming home to something ready to eat, plus my house smells delicious as soon as i open the door, plus my crock pot is a delightful shade of red, plus using it makes me feel like a real grown-up. and saves me from eating cookies for dinner, which is something a real grown-up would never do.

if any of you are feeling the itch to do something nice for me, you could send me one of your favorite crock pot recipes. or you could pray that a work-from-home ice storm hits tonight, instead. either one will do.

Sweet Potato Stew

2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 c. chopped celery
1 c. chopped carrots
1/2 ring of turkey kielbasa, sliced
1 can diced tomatoes

Delicious and colorful and even better as leftovers

I personally think eating cookies for dinner is a sure sign that you are indeed a grown-up.
