There are many small pleasures in this world — check out 1000 Awesome Things if you don’t believe me — but I think my all-time favorite little bit of joy is arriving home and realizing that dinner is waiting for me in the Crock-Pot.
It’s the BEST.
I can know it’s coming, but the joy comes from the fact that I always forget the second I slide my key into the lock, so when I step inside, I’m hit with the smell of just food and home; it never fails to thrill me.
That is what happened to me last night; I put in a little time before work preparing this French onion soup from How Sweet and then I walked in for a huge return on my investment in the form of total delight.
Is burning the fuck out of your mouth on your delicious Crock-Pot creation awesome? I’m undecided.
