Suburban Invasion


I am afraid I am turning into a typical suburban housewife - the other day I watched Oprah AND cried, let my children run around pantless all day, and cooked dinner in a crockpot. Heaven help me.

Incidentally, if anyone has good vegetarian crockpot recipes, let me know.

Damn it, there I go again!

THAT'S the typical suburban housewife? Heaven help me, too, then. I was hoping that the pantless thing made me a little more whimsical and/or gritty. BTW, LOVE my crockpot ;).

hey girlfriend... i've been trying to use my crockpot too - i dug it out this week and wiped off 8 years worth of dust. check this website out. it's not all vegetarian, but she does all kinds of cool stuff and you can find some veggie ones and/or modify. we're planning to try homemade yogurt this weekend!

I take it back then, Wendy. I like the idea of being gritty much better.

Thanks for the link Melissa!! The idea of eating crockpot food every day for 365 days makes me want to gag, but I'm excited for the recipes ideas!

Cassi - I was just going to leave you the link to crockpot365, but looks like I'm a bit late! I love her recipes and use my crockpot all the time. I'm not quite sure what that makes me since I'm not yet a wife nor a mother. :-) Hope all is well. Love ya.

It just makes you very resourceful! :)

I love to make homemade spagetti sauce in my crockpot... oh so tasty! You should give that a go...it really beats the pants off the jar kind.

I love my crockpot! I'm not a housewife, but it's great to put stuff in the pot and have a warm dinner when Darrell and I get home form work. Oh, and if I were home all day I would wear my pajamas for the duration as well. I've been known to live in my pajamas for an entire weekend, and I don't have any children. :)

i have a crock pot cookbook you can have when you get here (i have 2 copies) also i have one of your shirts from 2005 when you were here. and like the suburban mommy thing, it just gets worse. you lose a little of your "edginess" slowly and the next thing you know, you spent a minute and a half admiring your child's bowel movements and wondering why one of the little nuggets is darker than the rest.
