Good Things

Come to those who wait ... at least that's what the back of my new cookbook says ...



I can't wait, I mean, I'm excited to make some slow cooker dinners that actually taste like something. I have had the opportunity to enjoy several of these recipes at the hands of generous friends so I know that this book is a winner.


The funny thing is I really did have to wait to get this cookbook. I went to the store where both of my friends had purchased it and it was out of stock - twice! The second time they took my number and said they would call when it came in ... that was 2 months ago! I totally forgot all about it and then the call came - they had one left out of the six they ordered. Yup. I went out that day and got it.


I'm going to try to adhere to the 'good things' approach this year ... slow down and take care of my family, my home, my spirit. Bit by bit. Letting things simmer and not boil over. Tackling one thing at a time. Adding just enough spice. Yes. That is the recipe for 2009. It will be the art of the slow cooker indeed.

Funny, that. As I type, I am sniffing the delightful smells of savory goodness wafting from my CROCKPOT...Chicken, parsnips, carrots and potatoes. With a secret ingredient known as Lipton Onion Soup Mix...
