I left my crockpot on all night.
I know. I know.
Please don’t tell my mom.
It was so worth it though.
I woke up this morning to the most phenomenal smells – venison, onion, garlic, bay, thyme and just a tad of ginger. The veggies are in there now. When ready, this is going to be a meal that warms, heals and restores.
My home smells like comfort.
Some risks are worth it.
What was the last risk you took that paid off?

Are you not supposed to do that?
I can’t imagine waking up to the smell of venison and spices.
I hope it’s as good as it smells.
This week I had to have half of my rec room destroyed. YUP…. it had to come down…which it did today. It took 25 minutes and 22 seconds.
It had to come down in order for me to keep my homeowners insurance. (Long story!) Anyway, once it came down, I found out that the far corner of that area had been breakfast, lunch, and dinner for many termites. Fortunately, they did not get to the roof for the main house.
The risk was in having it pulled down and not correted some other way. The good thing from the risk was finding the termite damage before they gnoshed their way through my entire house! And now, once my house is refinanced, I will have it treated for termites and annually thereafter!!!!!
As for the crockpot on all night…. I did the same thing last night. I left it on warm and when I let my dog out at 4am, I turned it up to low.
I was slow cooking lentil soup. And it was wonderful waking up to the smells of homemade soup. I had some for lunch, and it was wonderful.
I hope your venison stew or roast was just as good!!!
