Wink

(no subject)

I was pushed into be a good person and now I regret it.
I was guiltied into baking something for an event for the humane group I help with (I foster cats) so I made a simple innocent lemon pie.
but they wanted me to get up at 7 am on sunday to walk like ten blocks and give it to a person who'd be picking up donations from my neighborhood.
And I don't want to get up early...*kicking and screaming on the floor* I refuse to get up at 6 something in the morning on a sunday!!!

what should I do? get up early? drive to the event later on, give them the pie and buy other stuff?
ignore everything; get up around 10 am and eat pie for breakfast?

have you ever done something like this for charity?

DK/DC; is my icon stupid or something? people from other com made fun of it...

I did something incredibly stupid the other day.

I have an induction stove, and I thought - why not make some pulled chicken? So, I made pulled chicken. I left the stove running on low with barbecue sauce, stock etc., and intended on letting it sit an hour. Problem is, I fell asleep at my computer, and I woke up 4 hours later to the strong smell of barbecue sauce. I realized the stove was a liiiittle higher than it should have been for what I wanted, and it may have burned a little.

Which leads me to my question. I don't have a crock pot. Could I just turn the induction stove on simmer - a lower heat setting than I left my chicken - and let something cook for several hours (like with a slow cooker) and get the same result? Or is that not safe?

High School Reunion or lack of

My high school reunion was supposed to be this summer but it never occurred. I was undecided if I wanted to go but it just surprises me that not even one of the 300 people I graduated with showed any interest in planning it. My sister went to the same school, graduated one year ahead of me, and yet her class had one. My parents were also always invited to theirs. I'm not pointing fingers- life does take you in different directions after all, but I am curious if this happened to anyone else. Is this actually pretty common?
