my mom gave me a slow cooker (crock pot!). we are initiating it's use on the same day we got it! that's pretty rad. me and the asher and the morgan decided to make a beef stew: carrots, onions, garlic, 17 beans and lentils mix from tj's, potatoes, and some kind of beef stew meat on sale. it's going to cook overnight and when i come home from work tomorrow, dinner is served!
