It is a bit of a disappointment, when upon going to check on your supper simmering nicely in the crockpot….
Which you added to the plugged-in crockpot several hours ago,
That you spent lots of time chopping and mixing together a little before that,
Because you wanted to enjoy a warm, homemade potato soup with your family on a chilly day,
And after all, you had several potatoes on hand which needed to be used,
And you even threw in the remnants of the bottle of Chardonnay that was opened a few nights ago (Because we all know that recipes just taste that much better with a bit of wine added in!)
….to find that the supposed-to-be-simmering soup is not simmering. Not exactly. And truthfully, it’s not quite yet hot. Or, patient reader, even the tiniest bit warm. Because for whatever reason, the outlet you’d plugged your trusty crockpot into IS NOT WORKING!! Bummer.
Cold potato soup with crunchy, uncooked potatoes and other veggies doesn’t sound as appealing as the warm and cooked variety. So, I’ve moved the crockpot to a different spot on the kitchen counter, picked a new outlet, and plugged the soup in. For real. At this rate it should be done by about 10:00 tonight. Which, to look on the positive side of all this, means I’ll have supper ready for tomorrow evening with no additional effort on my part.
But tonight, dear readers, we shall dine on omelets!!
What sort of meal (whether cooked or uncooked!) are you enjoying at your supper table??
