In fact, my inability to cook was one of the first things I told Eric before we started dating seriously. I felt that he should know that by getting involved with me we'd be eating out.... a lot. Lucky for Isabelle and I though, my husband is an amazing cook and loves to do it! It is because of him, my daughter and I stay nourished. And we have the perfect arrangement: Eric cooks, I clean. He hates when I'm in the kitchen when he's cooking, I hate when he cleans it! When I clean, I know there won't be any germs left. When he cooks, he knows it'll be edible. Win, win!
The exception to all of this though, is our crockpot. Soups, roasts, chicken, anything... it doesn't matter, it all comes out of a crockpot perfectly! And makes it look like I know what I'm doing in the process!
Here's another thing: The electricity is different in Germany. I Googled why Americans use 110 voltage when it seems that a good majority of the world uses 220 voltage, but then I got confused with the "transmission/three-phase alternating current electrical generation and distribution/larger windings and magnetic core materials in transformer construction" and decided I didn't care that much.
BUT, it is very important because.... you can't use 110V appliances with 220V plugs-ins.... or you'll fry your appliance. And the little adapter thingys only work if the appliance is "dual voltage."
My trusty crockpot wasn't dual voltage, and I had no idea.
I fried my crockpot......
And very literally almost started a fire....
No one else was home but me. I'm fine, the crockpot isn't.
