When you use your crock pot, you walk in the door and the end of the day and the house smells warm and inviting. I can do most of the prep in the morning before I go to work and when I have just a tiny bit of energy.
Well I browned the oxtails...
Sautéd some onions and garlic..
On my way out the door I checked the crock pot and it was hot and steamy. I turned it on low and left for work.
When I got home I was excited to open the door and be met with the warm, delicious aroma. I walked in the house...and nothing. Hmmm, I must really have a stuffy nose. I walked straight to the crock pot and lifted the lid - nothing. I hadn't plugged the damn thing in.
We went out for dinner.
