  • @notthefather I hate it too. And I hate how if there's anything with fat it all sits in the fat all day. Blech.

    hate cooking in a crock pot. Sure, it’s nice to just throw everything in there and hope for the best but they’re so difficult to clean it’s just not worth it.
    This is terribly unpopular with me.  My crockpot is my best friend some days.  They do have those liners that make it easier to clean if you are ever interested.  
    I’ve looked at those before but it feels like I’m cooking in plastic and that makes me anxious. I want to love a crockpot, I really do. 
    Ya, I wouldn't be comfortable doing that either.

  • @notthefather I actually just throw mine in the dishwasher. Super easy!

  • Am I the only one who gets burned on crap on theirs they can't get off? I soak overnight and put in the dishwasher but there's always stuff still stuck to it. Maybe I just really suck at crockpots!


    On our way to baby #2!

  • @notthefather Nope, same problem here. I love using the crockpot, but cleaning it really is a chore. The dishwasher itself definitely can’t complete the job.

  • Everything cooked in crockpots just tastes the same. I use mine for chili or soup, that’s it. Otherwise I kinda think they’re garbage.

    Mine only comes clean via soaking, wiping and hand washing. When I had a dishwasher it never got the job done. 

    But crock pots are my life. Had anyone ever had crockpot lasagna or chicken tacos? Yummm

  • @Gingermom15 Mmmm crockpot lasagna. I'm making that Saturday because I have to take the kids to the Santa Claus Parade.

    Men are FAR more dramatic and emotionally volatile than women (so when women bash other women for this and claim that's why they don't have female friends I roll my eyes)
    I feel like this is in response to my post this week about my friends and the baby shower planning (or at least sparked by it). I get the vibe from you that you’re a huge advocate for equality & feminism (I could be wrong though!) so for me it seems strange that while defending one gender you’d put down the other. 

    I would say rather than one gender being drastically more dramatic than the other, it is just a person to person thing. Most of the men I know are waaaaay more chill than the ladies I know. When they get rattled about something, they may over react but they are less likely to get rattled (in my experience). I don’t not keep female friends because they are dramatic though, I choose to keep very few female friends because they (again, this is just my experience) require more work and maintenance than my relationships with males. I don’t have time (or the care) to chat on the phone or see each other very often. MY male friends wouldn’t bat an eye if i didn’t make time for them for months on end... but my female friends require checking in.


    Anywaaaay, all this to say, I don’t think either gender is necessarily more dramatic than the other... I just think men and women are dramatic in different ways. 


    Also - I think Blake shelton has always been sexy ;)

  • @antoto I hear you, especially with teenagers lol.... they feel like a different species as an adult. Kudos to you for dealing with them all day hahaha. 

    I absolutely think youre you’re right about a lot of men stifling their emotions because they were taught to do that. I love seeing my son show emotions and I’m hoping that with society becoming more forward thinking, men being able to openly emote will become more acceptable and taught from a young age.

  • I guess I should ammend my crockpot statement- I liked it before I got my instant-pot now I don't use it and can't remember the last time I did.

  • @antoto YESSSSSSSSSSS to all of your UOs. I seriously side-eye people who say they can’t be friends with women because they’re too dramatic. My female friends are in general the most laid back and chill people I know. (But I also stick to the save the drama for your momma mentality so all of my friends are pretty chill regardless of gender.)
