Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, blogging pals. How is everyone? I hope you all had a nice weekend. Ours was both busy and quiet. Projects, leisure time, projects and leisure time. That was our weekend. And we squeezed in a couple of movies. The night before we watched 'Cat Ballou' with Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin. It's an old comedy western musical. Meh. It was alright. I'm not the biggest fan of old movies. Some I like, some I don't. Then last night we watched the crappiest movie in the history of crappy movies. 'Trespass' starring Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage. There are so many flaws in it that it's both laughable and exasperating. Do. Not. Watch. It.

Guess what? I'm the proud owner of a slow cooker. Finally. We went shopping on Friday night and brought one home with us. Do any of you use a slow cooker? I have wanted one for ages. I don't know why I took so long to get one. And since bringing it home, I've already collected about 1,000 recipes to try. Tomorrow will be my first attempt at this beautiful machine. Wish me luck, I'm going in...

Okay, enough of the blah, blah, blah...here's some funny stuff for you.







Have a great day!

  1. I use my slow cooker fairly frequently. It's great for sticking some sort of meat in before heading off to work if I know it's going to be a long day and won't have any time at all later. I think you will be happy your purchased one. -Jenn

  3. Lol about the grandmother and breakfast! Sounded like a good weekend you had. I like my slow cooker. Favorite thing I like to cook in it is chicken. I will cook 5 pounds of chicken breasts then shred the meat to be used in salads, souos, other recipes. So tasty!

  5. hahaha that second one is so me. I would be lost without my slow cooker and my pressure cooker. They are great for people like me who don't like to cook or fuss with food. They are also really great for summer cooking when it's too hot to turn on the oven.

    1. I think that's one of the things I'll like most about it - using it on hot days. This summer was really hot and I couldn't stand the thought of the oven or even spending too much time in front of the stove. I would have definitely liked a slow cooker!

  8. I don't like food from slow cookers. There are too many other good ways to cook meat. On the other hand the slow cooker is a god send for the cook!

    1. They're not for everyone. I will continue to cook in other ways, for sure. This will just add another method.

  9. I think you will absolutely love your slow cooker ... but still use other cooking methods too!

    Love the fifth one.

    Have a great week

    All the best Jan

  10. The grandma one is funny - as is the cat at the drinking fountain! Happy Monday!

  11. Awww poor doggie with the band aid! Love the one with the kitty drinking too. :-D We have a large Crock Pot, but we don't use it much. It's so huge. I'd like to get a smaller one and start making some meals ahead of time to freeze and then pop into the cooker.

    1. Totally understandable about the large cooker. We picked up a smaller one since it's only the two of us now.

  15. We love our CrockPot and one of our favoritist recipes is uber simple but delicious: cubed butternut squash, chicken breasts, cream of mushroom, and rosemary. YUM!

    Thanks for the smiles-that cat at the vet was especially pleasing!

  16. I have a slow cooker. I don't cook fast or slow very often, but I want to keep my slow cooker. It's the kind of thing that really comes in handy when you need it.

    Love,
    Janie

  17. your blog is fun to see -

    we have always had a slow cooker, it seems... for billions and billions of years and I have unlimited amount of recipes i've saved off - billions and billions in fact.

    1. HAHAHA! That's a lot of recipes, Sandy. I've been collecting quite a few over the past few days. At the rate I'm going, I may hit that billion mark :)

  18. I do use my slow cooker quite a bit. I invested in a larger one several years ago for large batches of soups and stews to share with my daughters family. I use a 4 quart when it's just the two of us here. It gets used more in the winter months. I think you will really enjoy it.

    Very funny cartoons. That plane is bizarre looking.

    1. That is wonderful, Cheryl. When we live closer to the girls, I will also be sharing lots of goodies with them. I love cooking stuff they enjoy. Always a mom...no matter how old my kids get!

    1. Oh, lucky you! My grandparents lived too far away and I only saw them all once in my life!

  20. Hahaha, the grandma one is so true. Conversations with mine tend to go like this:
    Her: "Should I heat up some leftovers for you?"
    Me: "No, thanks, I'm not hungry."
    Her: "Should I make you a sandwich instead?"
    Me: "No, thanks, I'm not hungry."
    Her: "All right, I'll bring you some cake."

    (Although it's gotten a bit less now that she's older and cooking/baking isn't so easy for her any more.)
