In mourning

Yes, I'm mourning the loss of my beloved crockpot. You see, this wasn't just any slow cooker! Oh, no. It was the mother of all slow cookers! It's a 6.5 Quart Oval Stainless Steel Slow Cooker, ideal for 6-7 people (great for us since I have a large family and love entertaining), with removable Stoneware and
glass lid. This was a wedding present from one of my aunts and it has become my most treasured kitchen appliance. This baby was heaven sent. I'd just get the food ready, chop up some root vegetables and let that baby slow cook and simmer all day long and when we got home from work, Hubby and I would have our meal all ready for us.

Yesterday something dreadful happened. The stoneware cracked. It needs replacement. How does one replace a wedding present without a receipt or proof of purchase? So sad. I need my crockpot! lol

Well, at least now you know what you're getting for Christmas. LOL! Just kidding. I would seriously CROWN that Prince if he gave you a crockpot. Or steak knives for that matter. Hee HEE

eBay? Call Walmart and ask them...Tell them it was a gift and you've only used it a few times..might work

Thanks, Barb! ;) I LOVE that slow cooker! LOL So sad, I know!

LOL, MsMamma! I'm actually curious as to what Hubby will be getting me for Christmas! Last Christmas he gave me this HUGE box- it must have been over 6 ft tall! In it though, there were two smaller boxes ad a bunch of bubble wrap! The joker! In one little box, there was a chalkboard eraser and a bunch of chalk for the classroom he helped me build, and in the other little box.....a ring!!! Now, how on earth is he going to outdo that?? LOL!
