Thanks for the birthday wishes.
Decided to make some braised brisket in red wine the other night so I whipped out my old crock-pot. It’s been in my family since I can remember – maybe 25-30 years? My mom used to make this killer spaghetti sauce she learned from my Italian neighbor Dot. It’s also where she made chili from a Mexican neighbor and how I made a lotta my chili too.
When I moved outta my family home, my mom asked me what I wanted and I asked for that.
Her: This old thing? Why don’t you buy a new one?
Me: Cause I want that one.
Anywho, put it on the counter top and noticed the back had cracked and a leg had fallen off. Managed to prop it up on a stacka bank checks to make the brisket but it was clear it was it’s last dish.
You don’t love a picture causesa the paper it’s printed on, y’love a picture because of what it represents.
Man, I loved that broken old thing.
Ha – suppose someone’ll say that about me some day. One would hope, anywho…
