What the crock?

You know those food blog posts where people praise their cooking abilities? How their recipes turned out just perfectly? 

This is not one of those posts.

By a long shot.

This post is this:

This is what I came home to one night last week. It was supposed to be Asian beef. But instead it was burnt crap. And the house smelled like burnt tomatoes and vinegar. It was so disappointing. Not only was I looking forward to another crock pot success, but I had actually told people about this great new recipe I found, how I had it cooking while I was at work. Yup, I had this working mama thing down people! 

And then I came home.

I think we ended up ordering pizza.

I can't remember. The rest of the night was a blur.

And it took two days of soaking in sudsy warm water to get that crap out of my pot.

Any crock pot winners you'd like to share? I could use a few good recipes please!

I love that you shared a fail. So much of blogging (not you, just generally) seems to be "look at how perfect am!" Sorry your dinner didn't work out.

Oh no! I had a what the crock moment a couple of months ago. Yech! It was so icky. Hopefully the crock has been punished and know knows her/his rightful role and is back in play again!
