I recently purchased my first slow cooker. As part of this blog, I have planned to publish a mini cookbook based on what I believe is a nutritious, easy to prepare diet. I have made several attempts to produce a meal in line with that. I have nothing that I feel worthy of inclusion. Creating a cookbook has some unanticipated problems. What do I do with the food? I want to explore many recipes, but with only one person eating, I already have a backlog in my refrigerator and freezer. I must change my eating habits in an attempt to keep up. The tightwad in me won’t let me throw it out, although one batch did go down the disposal because even I wouldn’t eat it. Cooking in a slow cooker takes a whole new mindset. I have always considered myself a good cook with few failures (more about cognitive bias another day), but slow cooking is a new challenge. I have $17 invested in the slow cooker. I will forge ahead. I will produce a cookbook. It just may take a little longer than I first estimated. Please be patient.

I would say, for the most part my life has been low key, but I do have some experiences not everybody has. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Business degree majoring in accounting. I have worked for two of the components of the Dow Industrial Average index. I was briefly a member of the 1% club and misplaced my membership card. I have ridden motorcycles, wrecked a 40’ boat, had a 36’ boat destroyed in a marina fire and spent two weeks in court being sued for $500k (I won). As a self-employed builder, I built over 300 homes and had 20 people working for me. I still have a couple of dragons to slay, this blog being one of them. View all posts by PDR
