Fast forward a few years later and we now love her crock-pot - even Catherine. Last Thanksgiving we made pulled pork in her condo in the city and it was AMAZING! My mom has also cooked many meals using her crock-pots and in the cold Chicago winter months, they were perfect, warm, and delicious.

My mom and I had talked about it a bunch this past weekend because she wanted to make sure that if she got me one, it would be what I wanted, etc. We also debated about me getting it in Chicago at Christmas and shipping it back or her just having it shipped to me... So much for surprises... (jk!)
Imagine my surprise when, as I was leaving my house yesterday, I literally walked right into a huge UPS box on my front stoop. I almost tripped over it!
CHECK IT OUT!!! - What a Beaut?!
Now, I have already gotten approval from my mother and she says that I am allowed to use it even though it's not really Christmas yet, at all. Yippeeeee! Let's flashback to my birthday, when she sent the gifts early and then made me wait until the actual day to open them. It was torture, but lucky for me, Derek helped her enforce it. Boo.
Thankfully, I will be able to enjoy this treat soon...as soon as I find a recipe!
What are you favorite crock-pot recipes? Please send one my way so I can try it out.
Thank you Mom and Dad!!
