This public service announcement brought to you by HoneySmacks during a Not Too Bright Moment (TM).
So, I put the 5 pounds of chicken pieces into the crockpot, pour a jar of my brandied apples over it, add a handful of dried onion, a handful of red pepper flakes, a sprinkle of cayenne, and some salt. I turn the crockpot on, put the lid on, and wait for it to start smelling good.
After an hour, I'm wondering why it doesn't smell good yet! I go in the kitchen, check that it's on, touch the lid and it's stone cold. My thoughts go like this... "Wtf?! Why isn't it working?! What's wrong with my stupid crock... ohhhh. Duh! face palm"
So, now it ON officially. Hopefully, it'll be done in time for dinner, now! I hate it when I'm dumb.
