What a crock!

In the fridge... all the right fixings for super soup. All I had to do was clean, peel, and chop all the veggies. Then pop it into the crock pot for a long simmer's night. Set my cook timer and go relax... right?! But, oh no! An hour went by and the timer went off, but guess who left the crock pot unplugged. Midnight came and I felt like I was "Moonlighting". That feeling when you can't go to sleep yet... there's work to be done.

If I'd thought a bit longer, I'd have left it off and instead, started cooking in the morning. But no... wouldn't that make sense? I'm such a night owl. Early morning is too much for this happy cook.

Oh, what the heck... the song came to mind and it's a favorite. I'll call you when the soup is ready.

  1. I remember the Moonlighting show. Whenever I see it now I can't help laughing at Bruce Willis's young face and full head of hair! Crock pots are awesome. Good luck with your soup! :)

    1. I know, Lexa, and often wonder if that was Bruce's real hair back then. Smile.

    1. I love my crock pot, Alex. I make enough soup to put in the freezer for later.

      You're old enough to remember Moonlighting?

  4. I loved MOONLIGHTING series as a kid! Is Sybill Shepherd still active? Crock pots are nasty things, either way, you really get nothing healthy from them :)

    1. Wait! You're "The Hollywood Spy" asking me if Cybil Shepherd is still active?? I don't have an answer.

      You don't like crock pots? Too bad.

    1. Pat, I use mine when I want large quantities to freeze for later. This batch of soup will take me through early Spring. I can also give some to neighbors, or shut-ins.

  6. Why did you have to stay up? Doesn't your crock pot turn itself off? Much easier when they do. I can delay start mine too if I need to. Maybe you should treat yourself to a new one?

  8. "A long Simmer's night"?
    Wow! DIXIE POLKA, is it already Simmer where you live? Well, I guess that groundhog foretold it, eh?

    I love 'MOONLIGHTING' - both the show and the song! It's still one of my Top 3 or 4 favorite TV shows of all time and I own every episode on DVD, plus the official soundtrack on CD.

    Did you ever see 'ATOMIC SHAKESPEARE'? Their spoof of 'Taming Of The Shrew'? Golly, that was funny! What a classic!

    1. Nay - it's not simmer or summer yet.

      I thought it so coincidental posting this, while you were posting comment and blog bit, elsewhere. Sure thing, I knew you had a thing for "Moonlighting," but you throw in an episode that leaves me with the thought: 'what a crock!'

      That said, yeah, I stepped back in time and watched it again. It doth leave me laughing this time too. (smile).

      Thank you for sharing!

  9. I love homemade soup. :) I've done things like this all the time. Like getting coffee all ready and coming back to find I never turned the coffeemaker on.

  10. I loved that show.

    I put dinner in the oven the other night and forgot to turn it on. Ended up ordering pizza.

  11. I bought these NuWave burners (they're pretty awesome, btw) BUT there is a learning curve on them. After you plug it in you must hit the start button. I don't know why I can't remember to do that, but I've stood and looked at the pan several times wondering why nothing's happening. And then my brain kicks in and reminds me that I have to actually hit the start button. So, I feel ya on this one.

    As for Moonlighting... what a great show!!!

    1. Start button or switch, probably makes no difference to my brain either.

      I hope you watched Stephen's link!
