Potential Cooking Disaster
Maintaining two blogs and having a life are a bit challenging for me! I have eaten since my last post, believe me. I went to the co-op this morning to fill up on all my bulk ingredients. I bought barley, split peas and dried marjoram for a pea soup I'm making for tomorrow in the crockpot. I pulled the crockpot out and plugged it in (I have no idea why because I wasn't planning on cooking it today). Then I unloaded my stuff and just tossed the plastic baggies with the barley, split peas, marjoram and a fresh onion into the pot to keep it all in one place until tomorrow morning. Well, I'm vacuuming about an hour later and just happen to glance at the crockpot and see that it's turned on HIGH. With my plastic baggies in it. I pulled out the pot and stuck it outside. Miraculously, the plastic was only melted in one spot. Good thing crockpots take ages to heat up.
