1. What’s the last thing you baked?
As usual, before my kids leave for college, or before I leave after visiting them, I will cook/bake up a storm. It makes me feel much better leaving them with something I’ve made with my own hands that they can enjoy away from Mom.
This time, I baked 2 types of cookies for Steev before he left to go back to college – chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal cookies.
2. What’s your favorite thing about fall?
I love the colors and crunch of fallen leaves. So beautiful and oh so romantic.
3. What’s your favorite room in your home?
My home office which is where I spend most of my time working hanging out. Or wherever my computer happens to be.
4. Who handles bill paying in your house?
Me… and man, would I quit this job in a minute 🙄 !!
5. Tell whatever you’d like to share with our chatting friends.
I’ve been sitting here thinking about my slow cooker all this week. Yup, I have a slow cooker that’s been sitting pretty on the counter for ages. I can’t even remember the last time I fired it up. I think it’s time to explore its hidden potential. Better to have the slow cooker sweat it out than me, right? Do you use a slow cooker? Do you have any tips or recipes for an absolute noob like me?
