hamilton beach slow cooker on Mediterranean BabyMy friends at Hamilton Beach just made it a whole lot easier!  Not only did they send me a Set ‘n Forget 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker, but they’re offering one to one lucky Mediterranean Baby fan as well.  Just let me know the name of your favorite slow cooker meal in a comment to this post and you’ll be entered to win.  I will post the winner next Tuesday morning and Hamilton Beach will ship the slow cooker to the lucky winner.
. . .
This hearty tuscan soup has a variety of ingredients from lite sausage (or sauce-see-gee as my kids call it) to protein packed beans and heart healthy veggies that are sure to please all of your friends and family.  Set ‘n forget it for the perfect weeknight meal or halftime offering.  Afterall, it’s finally football season!!
The Set ‘n Forget Slow Cooker lid easily snaps and locks to contain all of the flavors inside and provide for easy transport to a party across town.   Even better, the Set ‘n Forget has a probe that’s inserted through the lid and directly into a large roast, chicken, or tenderloin.  You simply set it to cook to the exact temperature you desire and it will automatically shift to the warm setting thereafter.  As an added bonus, you’ll also receive a serving spoon!
. . .
Thank you again, Hamilton Beach.  I absolutely love my new slow cooker.
It’s easy to use and the tightly sealed lid allows for extra savory meals that can easily be taken on the go! #slowcookermeals

      The hotnsey of your posting shines through

    • Tak já dal taky 50, ale příjde mi, že to zadání je nedostatečné, abych mohl odpovÄ›dÄ›t. PÅ™ece když neznám moji ochotu platit za koncert Madonny, nemůžu říct, jaký jsou náklady obÄ›tovaný příležitosti. Co když sice mám lístek zadarmo, ale Madonna se mi hnusí tak, že abych Å¡el na její koncert, musela by mi zaplatit 40 Kč?

    • MehThe world’s most overrated writer by a mile. The second half of Persuasion is inept. P & P is 30% too long. The French have the right idea – they just ignore her.  

    • the reason why he does not have a lot of C. U .M is cause he jacks off a whole lot so tell him to stop for 2 weeks and don’t give him any for a week so that it can build up and then after that give him some and watch him bust open like a fire hose right in your face.

        “…many Palestinians and Jews share a common male ancestor who lived in the early days of the current era…”I always wonder about these ‘common male ancestors.’ One gets this image of some rural Don Juan, seducing and impregnating all and sundry for miles around.I know, I know, but still — that is the first inference that comes to mind. ‘Our founder.’

        Congrats! Amazing pacing. I ran the exact same time this weekend in a 5k- we've always been pretty well matched pace-wise. But my splits were NOT even. I wish! Well done.

    • I would be happy to learn from someone as passionate about flowers as you are! I am a florist and gardener from California, and I’d love to be on your team! Started out as a delivery driver and learned from the ground up, and learning still every day!

    • ich hätte nichts gegen eine schnell lesbare zeitung, aber bitte eine die weniger parteiisch ist, und sich an bestehende gesetze hält!und faz – warum nicht direkt taz? das fänd ich geil! Antworten

    • The premise sounds like a blend between Batman and Watchmen, but there certainly sounds like The Victories has its own thing. Great job on the write up. Sounds like this could be a good pick up.

      2 reasons to check out the new Monocle – someone I knew writing, and someone who has obvious taste, interesting thoughts and a palpable passion earning a mention, all on pg. 140. Great interview and I’ll have to add his blog to my listB

    • Jo jag kikade lite pÃ¥ kritiken mot artikeln innan jag publicerade, hade dock inte läst den intervjuen sÃ¥ det tackar jag för. Ska sätta mig in lite mer vid tillfälle. Tack för kommentaren!
