It is nearing midnight an the yokels' firework supply seems to be endless. I'm glad we took Chester to the vet to board for the weekend; he'd be a mess by now.
This petty, misanthropic annoyance may be to blame for me breaking my silence on one of those facebook facts of life that I've kept my mouth shut about, until now. (And, the reason this rant is going on the blog and not facebook is because I don't wish to invoke the looting villagers wrath of those who know their sin.)
HOW EFFIN' LAZY DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO USE YOUR CROCK POT FOR FOODS THAT NEED NEVER SEE A CROCK POT?
First, it was an intern who told me that she sets up eggs in her crock pot at night so that her breakfast is ready to eat in the morning when she wakes up. I cannot even begin to imagine how dried out or rubbery crock pot scrambled eggs must be like. And, how lazy do you have to be to run an appliance over night for EGGS! (Seriously, when I come in from the gym, I slug down a glass of kefir and then scramble two eggs for my breakfast while the cats have their breakfast. It takes all of 5 minutes to pull eggs out of the fridge, heat some butter in a pan, whisk the eggs, cook them, and slide them on a plate.)
But then I saw, on facebook, people going ape-shit happy over some giant pancake in a crock pot recipe. WHAT THE EFF? I get the appeal must be something like putting peeps in the microwave to see them puff up, but really? I find that novelty foods rarely are foods you actually want to eat.
Tonight, someone posted a crock pot french toast recipe. Really? You would go to all the trouble of putting together the ingredients (milk, eggs, flavorings and bread) but then leave it for hours in a crock pot rather than spend 10 minutes at the stove?
You people are strange. Crock pots are a crock. There. I said it. Crock pots are a total waste of time and space.
