Bulletins For My Daughter: 1


At our house, we each take a night to decide what we will have for dinner and cook the dinner. Although you are (mostly) exempt from cleaning up after that dinner, you will most certainly be on the cleaning crew for someone else’s night.  If you’re smart, you’ll angle for any night except the dog’s night – he cooks something in the slow cooker every Monday and while it’s super to have hot stew waiting when we come home, he’s a devil about getting the cookpot clean.

So whether you choose to cook spaghetti pie like your Aunt Stephanie (every. single. wednesday. for. three. years.) or turkey tetrazzini like Aunt Elizabeth (rinse, repeat.) you’ll be finding yourself elbows deep in sudsy clean-up a few evenings a week.  On top of it all, we’re going to require the injustice of putting your dishes in the dishwasher at any time of the day or night.  I know, the cruelty.

If you don’t, I might just take a page out of one of my co-workers’ books and inscribe this on the bottom of the sink (found this morning when I very much needed a good laugh.)

  1. That’s funny! Have you tried the crock pot liners? They really help in clean up.

  2. do they make anything taste icky? I’ve always been hesitant to try…

  3. Oh, that is just too funny!! We try to be good about putting stuff in the dishwasher but, some nights I just don’t care!

  4. I love the liners, mostly because I hate washing dishes and the crock pot would take up too much room in the dishwasher. I haven’t noticed any difference in taste.
