I thought I had it all together. I put a GREAT dinner in the crockpot this morning.
After a long day at work, I bustled into the house at 5:45, with hungry children waiting, took off the crockpot lid, prepared to stir, and was greeted with a charred mess. Apparently, I had left it on high rather than on low. Dinner and the pot were both burned to destruction*. But at least I didn't set the house afire!
*And at least it was my old pot.
