My cooking tragedies
When I was first married, I wanted to please my new husband. So, I bought some shrimp from the market. I had NO idea how to cook it and I figured it must be cooked already so I peeled it and served it to him when he got home. (My mom had never served shrimp). He strongly suggested I boil it and wow then it looked like what you get at a restaurant...soooo not a tragedy exactly but definintely a funny story!

Slow Cooker Chili II
Fantastic. The servings count was a little low - no serving size mentioned, so we used 1 cup. It was absolutely delicious. We'll be doubling the recipe for our next go around. This served 5.
