For my first meal, I scoured Pinterest and found a recipe for slow-cooker chicken pot pie that looked pretty delicious. It took me about a week to hoard all of the ingredients — thank you Target and Tony’s Fresh Market —needed for the recipe. That’s not to suggest that the recipe called for anything extreme. I simply had nothing in my arsenal of spices.
So off I went to gather things like garlic powder, thyme, and three and a half celery stalks to begin the cooking process. I will admit I googled “how to dice an onion” before I began. As an ametuar, I’m not cutting any corners by assuming I know how to do things I don’t.
So after 25 minute of prep and about 4 and a half hours of slow-cooking (on high), my meal was complete.
How did it taste? Deliciously victorious. Or, to put it in the words of my roommate, “You definitely bought this at the store.”
