It seemed like a good idea at the time to buy a big slow cooker, so I can cook food to bring for lunch. I started doing that a few weeks ago. It is a device that moves at a snail’s pace.
But it caused another dilemma for me which was having a container to put said food in to bring with me. I have heard of and seen people use a device called Tupperware, but I have never had it myself nor knew where to acquire said Tupperware.
Then one day in the store while buying paper towels, I saw something called Ziploc plastic containers and purchased the aforementioned item. Problem solved.
My other frustration with the slow cooker is its name is a bit deceiving. For a guy who is used to using the popcorn setting on the microwave, which is still the ultimate cooking method, I think the contraption called slow cooker should be called- Really Really Slow Cooker.
I mean it took hours for the food to cook. Sure the end result was good, but my gosh. 8 hours to cook food!!!
With so many confusing devices like Really Really Slow Cooker, is it any wonder that the realm called kitchen escapes my understanding. This is frustrating for a guy who interacts with diverse cultures every day and can speak three languages. The realm called kitchen humbles me.
What are your thoughts? Really Really Slow Cooker or Popcorn Setting on Microwave?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
