As you’re learning to cook, do you ever get that feeling that something in your house is going to blow up? I have that feeling right now. I just popped in my first meal into the slow cooker that Bestie gave me for my birthday. The only thing is… I put it on high instead of low. Why? Because I woke up at 4am and realized that stoopid me forgot to read the directions before bed. It’s a 7-8 hour cook time on low, so I’m guessing if HIGH is 2x the amount of heat then it should take 1/2 the time, right? Here’s hoping.
Well, if you’re wondering what recipe I’m using it’s this one from Apron Strings Blog. I’m hoping that it turns out okay. I just don’t have raisins.

Well, the lady did call it Joyful Almond Oatmeal, so what did I do? I added some milk chocolate chips. I think less is more in that category, but my brain didn’t know that. While it was good, it was a bit on the rich side. It didn’t need any sugar though. Daddy Bee just ate it and he likes it too, so I think I’ll keep the recipe.
