I finally downloaded music to my iPod. I've had it for a while now, and I had some music on it, but a friend gave me some gift cards...and I just now used them. I just don't listen to lots of music, so I didn't have a clue what to get. And what I ended up with is totally random...a little Black Eyed Peas, Kutless, Hope for Haiti, etc. Strange mix...but that's me, I guess.
So what does that say about me? I guess I am a little random. Just read the rest of the post and you'll figure that out.
I started a Crockpot Cookers group on Facebook. It already has 76 members! I don't know why that excites me, but it does. I've been using my crockpot at least once a week and love coming home to homecooked food already done. It makes working out at the Y a lot easier knowing dinner isn't going to waste all my hard exercise.
Speaking of exercise, the song I'm listening to now is one we dance to in Zumba...makes me want to get up and dance. And I don't dance. Because I don't have rhythm. But I still want to.
My mom did give me one of those hip scarves they use in belly dancing to wear in Zumba. Too funny. Too fun.
The apple dumplings I made in the crockpot yesterday turned out so well. I impressed myself. And now I want some. I've got a yummy cup of decaf coffee with cinnamon and homemade whipped cream (thanks to that Magic Bullet thing). A warm bowl of apple dumplings would go so nicely, but that would require I go to the freezing cold garage to get some out of the fridge there.
I need another crockpot. The one I have is big, really big. I need a smaller one. I have a slightly smaller one, but it cooks way too hot. Boils soup even on low. I'm in a serious cooking mood. I want new knives too. Well, not knives. Just one. I want a chef's knife, but not a huge one. They had a 7 inch one at Target for cheap, but that's just too much knife for me. I'm not much of a knife person anyway. I also need some glass bowls to use for double boiling chocolate, and just for mixing stuff in general.
And I want one of those vidalia onion choppers where you chop onions in one hit. Very cool. One of these days I'll be one of these people that can prep all her veggies for the week at once and have cute little bowls of pre-prepped ingredients in her fridge. But not now. So I need to be able to chop and cut quickly...hence the Seen on TV Vidalia cutter and the chef's knife...and a bamboo cutting board while we're at it.
