There are some things I don't like from the slow cooker like anything that includes the chicken being cooked in it. It turns out gross with a weird texture so I don't use it for that. It's really handy when you have limited time or don't want to tend to anything. I like beef roast and pork roast and if I'm doing something with chicken (like a green chicken chili I've got going today) it's already cooked and just added at the end to heat through.

My neighbor was telling me that a lady she works with left some beans cooking on the stove top while SHE WAS AT WORK. They all urged her to go home immediately and check on them and she acted like it was totally fine! I'd hate to be her neighbors. That lady, she needs a slow cooker.

I wouldn't leave beans on the stovetop because beans are done in no more than 2 hours so long as they're soaked (which they should be, brined, really), but leaving things on the stovetop is not the end of the world as some people think it is. We leave things on overnight in restaurants all the time.

I don't even run my dishwasher when I'm not home.

The lady eventually went home to check on them and guess what, they were dry. Duh. I just can't fathom leaving my stove top turned on unattended while away for 8+ hours.

Some stove tops have slow cookers built-in. My mom has one.

There's no open flame, it's electric. I don't see the difference between that and a crockpot?

Damn, why are there no quality fabric stores in Puerto Rico?

I hate ordering fabric online. It's never what I expect. I want to see it and touch it.

I have been craving Mexican food for like a week now (side eye to Spring), I cannot wait to go back to KGN and strong arm someone into going with me.

Took all the Christmas down today and packed it away until next year. The house seems so incredibly blah now.

DH and I went to see a movie last night. It was The Impossible, about the 2004 tsunami.

Note to self: never, ever go to Thailand. Not to the coast anyway. Those tsunamis are some crazy shizzle.

Also, I found it a bit distracting that Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, both with blue eyes, had two brown-eyed sons in the movie. That's genetically impossible, right? Right??

Eye genetics are far more complex than what that taught is in biology class.

My family is a carrier of the blue eyed gene even though most of us have brown eyes. Blue eyed kids coming from brown eyed parents isn't unusual for us. My parents both had brown eyes, my bro and sis ended up with blue. I inherited their brown eyes, and ended up with kids with green and blue eyes.

I admit that I am no expert on genetics, so I am open to anyone correcting me. My understanding is that blue eyes are recessive and if both parents have blue eyes, the children will always have blue. If both parents have brown eyes, they could have a brown gene and a blue gene and the kids could end up with either. I'm not sure how green fits in. I have brown and my husband has blue, and one of our kids has green and the other has brown.

Before DNA testing was common, I believe they tested paternity with blood types. I have A+, and my husband has B+, and I've joked to him before that that is the one combination for which our children could have anything. So that blood test would be totally inconclusive.
