As a morning person, preparing a crockpot meal for evening
wins out over getting started in late afternoon
Bless the person who invented the 'dough' hook.
Pie making is not my favorite kitchen experience
and the dough hook makes a world of difference in
the number of homemade pies the RG enjoys in one year ;)
Running water - I'm old enough to remember the homes
of family and neighbors with no running water.
I give thanks for it often.
The Bread Maker - this is non essential but it was a gift
and we enjoy the breads from time to time.
Aaaah, the Microwave - multiple uses all day long
but a hot cup of cocoa to end the day . . .
