Show & Tell: My New MAN!!

Join others for Show & Tell!
Show and Tell
Thanks for joining me!

My new MAN!

I decided I needed a new spark in my life.

Someone good looking.

Someone young.

Someone reliable.

Someone flexible.

Someone who makes me look good.

Someone who really knows how to give me what I want!!!

Mr. Hamilton Beach 3 in 1 Crock Pot to be exact.

(above photo taken from web)
When the kids were home we had two HUGE crock pots.
Now, soon, its going to just be us two.
I need a smaller crock pot.
BUT sometimes there will be lots to feed.
AND making extra to freeze is something I'm interested in.
I don't have a lot of extra storage space here.
So, when I heard of this 3 in 1 (2qt, 4qt, 6qt) I was sold!
I know I can count on Hamilton Beach, and this was no more expensive than a regular 6qt.
So far it has proven a good buy.
Three sizes of crock pots in one space.
Easy to use, clean and store.
I'm in love!!! (and so are the people eating the yummy food I fix:)
I am haunting all the wonderful crock pot blogs that so graciously share their recipes.
Here is my handsome new fella with the remaining Sunday chili, and my mom's cornbread.

Because my plate of next day leftovers was so pretty with the crumbled cornbread,
I had to take another picture!

Need something new and exciting in your life????
Or just need to rekindle an old relationship?
Mr. Crock Pot-HE'S THE MAN!!!

Oh yea, when hubby doesn't feel threatened when you bring a new special someone home?
AND he even helps with your new relationship (by making the chili), that's a solid marriage!! (not to mention HE paid for it:) My hubby rocks!

Yep, I have this crock pot and I love it!

Pink Slippers said...

Yes I agree with ALL that. What a hubby you have and I LOVE my crock-pot SO MUCH. BUT I might like yours better--it's a 3-in-1? Hmmm!
I have to go talk to hubby--Honey.....

Little GrumpyAngel said...

Well, way to go! Your new man is a catch! :-) And your hubby is so enlightened and doesn't even mind sharing with the new guy. Yes, he rocks!

Grammy said...

Hi Carla, I love your new man. I have not seen a crock pot like this one yet, Have fun

Hootin Anni said... that you got your 'new man'....can we all come over and you'll share your man's recipe? LOLOL

Looks yummy. I love chili.

My Show n Tell is now posted...come on over if you can! I'd love to have you visit with me this fine Friday!!! Happy weekend to you too.

Schotzy said...

I love how you paired your memes! That is too funny! And that chili recipe would be great for Tuesday's tempt my tummy! Have a great weekend!!

Pamela said...

I've seen this crock pot combo at Target - glad to see such a great recommendation.

Constance said...

Great post today! I loved how you introduced it! I am one with my Crock Pot as well and I like the idea of a 3-1! Just this week I made my White Chicken Chili for dinner. Crock pots are great on those days when I am going 90 MPH!

Last week I shared about my Grandma's trunk, the "before restoration" photos. I got it back and I have posted its transformation on today's S&T.

Missy Wertz said...

Oh baby! I think I want me one of those!

Julie said...

Great post!! I use my crock pot 2-3 times a week. Just made taco soup in it yesterday. Have a great day. Julie

A happy heart at home said...

What a great product! My big, oval crockpot is just right for stuffing an eight-pound chicken in, but it's really big for some other recipes I make in it. I'm glad to have it, though!


onlymehere said...

I'm still using the same old crock pot I got when I got married 26-1/2 years ago!! I don't remember the brand but I sure wish it had different sizes like yours. The only thing I use mine for is barbecue though. If you try any new great recipes I hope you post them since I'd love to learn how to make more! I know how to make roast in it but we prefer my Magnalite in the oven to the crock pot. Enjoy!

Gone said...

How cute...this post put a huge smile on my face!!!

I think I'll have to check out this new crock-pot. Right now, I have 2 different size crock-pots hogging space in my cabinet...and bringing a new fella into the house...could be a GOOD thing...a VERY GOOD THING!!!

Thanks for the visit and prayers.

katylinvw said...

gotta love the crockpot! :) i'm glad your hubby isn't too jealous :)

Nola said...

What a great idea; how come we didn't think of that? Bet it was designed by a woman!
My thoughts turned to chili and cornbread, too. It always does when the weather turns cool. I started a kitchen recipe blog, so I posted about it at ALAMO NORTH today.
I'm getting some coarse ground beef for chili tonight, too!

That looks yummy! Crock pots are one of the best inventions - I don't know what I'd do without mine!


Jen - Balancing Beauty and Bedlam said...

So totally fun and creative...I couldn't wait to find out the man that was going to captivate your heart (and yep, I have lots of those men in my life as well. :)

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a great deal! I have a large crock pot too, and sometimes I'd like to have a smaller one. Maybe I can put this on my list for Christmas. :)

Mindy said...

I absolutely LOVE my crock pot. I don't know what I would do without it really, especially in the colder months.

Jean said...

Interesting item and cute post! Jean

Never saw the three in one crock pot. I so need to get mine out and start using it again. I thought getting an oval shaped one was 'new fangled' : )

Lois Christensen said...

I love my crockpot as well. Actually it's being put to good use today...smells delicious in the house! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Dawn said...

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Well, I want to be Ceekay....but after all the food....cheek-y if you know what I mean...fits! Thanks for the chuckle!!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

LOL! I'm happy to meet Mr Crock Pot!
I have two crockpots and I love them. Right now I do need the really big ones, but it's nice to know there is a smaller choice out there now.
Have a great day!

Being Mrs Miles said...

OK - I'm having CROCK POT ENVY now. haha, what a great idea.

You got some of this chili still on? I'll be right over. Whats your recipe, at the very least.

So glad I stopped in for a good chuckle!


Linda C said...

Thanks for dropping by and believe it or not Weatherford is the peach capital of Texas. I've lived near there all my life and never knew either.

Your new man is very handsome and if he's anything like mine, very hardworking!
