I may end up with my name on a line of linens at the discount store

This blog is all about honesty, y'all and I have to be honest- I'm on my way to becoming Martha Stewart! Without all the legal infractions, of course.

It may be a teeny bit of a stretch to claim to be achieving the domestic godessness of Marty (that's what I call her- we're BFFs) because I still don't know how to zest a lemon or fold a fitted sheet properly.

But this weekend? I roasted a chicken in the crockpot and then used the bones to make HOMEMADE CHICKEN STOCK. After that, since the crockpot and I were getting to be so buddy-buddy and sharing all our deepest secrets with one another, I used my crockpot again to make HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE. And it was DELISH!

But then J. said "Depart foul spirit of Martha Stewart, in the name of Jay-eee-zuhs!" and I was exorcised right then and there. Because after the chicken stock and the applesuce experiment, I caught up on DVR'ed shows and then went to bed, leaving the kitchen in shambles, 5 or 6 (maybe more!) loads of clean laundry unfolded and innumerable other chores unaccomplished.

Domesticity is exhausting.


  1. how do you made applesauce in the crock pot? do tell...

  2. For whatever reason - I am always on my CSS blogger profile when I comment on you. It is really just me - Holly at I Heart Bowheads :)

  3. @ Penny & @ CS- Homemade applesauce in the crockpot equals simplicity! I cored, peeled and cubed/chopped 8 apples. I used pink lady apples b/c I got a bunch of them for cheap, but they were a bit too tart for my angels and I didn't want to waste them. Put them in the crockpot with 1/2 c. water, 1/2 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon. I cooked on high for about 2 hours, but my crockpot usually cooks faster than any recipe (this one called for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 on low). Then I poured it all in a bowl and blended it with my hand blender. It was perfect! Go make some!
