Conversation held in my kitchen this morning:
Hubby: (Stirring stuff in the Crock Pot.) Why isn’t this getting hot?
Me: Is it plugged in?
Me: Is it turned on?
Hubby: (In duh tone as he once again carefully stirs the potato chowder that’s almost over the top of the dang thing.) Yeeesss. (More duh tone.) The outside feels warm but the food’s still cold.
Me: You just filled the darn thing five minutes ago. Hence why it’s called a “slow cooker.” And FYI, you should have used the larger one. That one’s almost too full.
Hubby: (Blink.) Ohhhh…
(I should add Hubby is becoming a very good cook, but he hasn’t used a Crock Pot very often. That’s usually been my domain. But he’s trying a new potato and ham chowder recipe that already smells delicious. And yes, he’s still The World’s Best Husband(TM).)
