Slow Cooker is how my kids can work & feed the kids at the end of the day.

Big improvement over my suppers of cold cereal and peas.

It’s hard to find the right food for a passel of kids (defined as 1 or more).

Bet this yellow-tabbed, electronically-monitored Big Mama is thinking

“Wish I had help.”

I remember the “Sale! Mothers!” signs and my Far-Side reading of them:

What a good idea.

Another Mom!

Or, a slow cooker.


*I constantly wonder what’s going on inside the mind of our bears. I was inspired by this WordPress Challenge to ponder what the meandering mom of triplets was trying to figure out. I empathized.

    1. Another coincidence: I needed to interrupt my drive recently so as to wake myself up. I went into a bookstore and fingered cookbooks. For about a half hour I read from The French Slow Cooker by Michele Scicolone. I concentrated on her slow-cooker baking that as I remember it involved putting ramekins atop a ring of crumpled tin foil. Then I drooled over cassoulets and choucroute recipes and found that somehow following first do this and this and then did you know if you do this sort of narrative I was all rested up and resumed my travels.
