Dinner Success

I almost completely ruined our dinner. Thankfully my husband came home a little after I put everything in the crock pot and lifted the lid to see what was cooking in there. I had put my pork shoulder ribs in there and turned it on and just assumed dinner was cooking. Well, turns out you have to actually plug in the crockpot for it to come on. Who would have thought right? Anyways my pork shoulder ribs turned out great and I served them with green beans and a pasta salad.

I certainly got lucky there! I probably wouldn't have noticed until I went to serve it.

I did something like that before... I was cooking rice using a rice cooker... After sometime I wondered how come it's not done yet while I knew it usually didn't take that long to cook... Turned out I never did push the 'cook' button down - there was a light on the cooker already, I thought it's on and all ready to cook when it was actually just a power light...

Did you check it many times before you noticed? I am constantly having these moments.

@farbuoloxusy At that time, my husband was the one who noticed that I had not pushed the 'cook' button down... But yes, since then whenever I use the rice cooker I keep pushing the 'cook' button down again and again making sure I did turn it on.

@sishy7 Thank goodness for husbands who notice those kind of things! My husband noticed it because he couldn't smell it cooking.

It is better not to do any other things when we cook, because it is very dangerous if we forget it.

The whole point of a crockpot is to be able to leave it alone and let your dinner cook. Just needs to be plugged in of course.

In the end the dinner was perfect and you were glad. I forgot once to turn the stove on when I was cooking a roast. when the alarm went off everyone was starved and the roast was raw.

I cannot say it is the first time. I can be such an air head at times.
