$20 Find

I've been searching quite some time for a floor model stereo, I've
come across several on CL only to be told sold! When I inquired
about this one I was told that someone had made arrangements to
pick it up the following morning, oh well another one bites the dust!
A few days later I received an email saying they had failed to do so
and if I was still interested it was all mine. 

While talking to Mama recently I discovered that she was on the 
hunt for one as well so I've decided to redo this one and surprise
her for her upcoming birthday!

Sorry for quality of photo, taken with my cell.


OAN: Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong as far as the font
goes? I click on Trebechet and that's what I get while composing but as 
soon as I post, I get the cursive font, call me slow cause for the life of
me I can't seem to figure it out. Help!

Sears Slow Cooker

Last spring I attended a Church Rummage Sale, I came across this slow cooker.
There were 3 of them priced at $5 each.  I picked up one and carried it around
while I looked for other goodies. By the time I got around to paying for it it was
half off time! Payed for it and went back for a 2nd so yeah I got 2 of these for the
price of one.  Looking on ebay and etsy I see that they start off at $25 & up so I
feel like I scored once again!

Other than heating some water in it when I first purchased it to see if it works I
 hadn't used it til today! At this very moment I'm trying a Pot Roast! Will let
you know how well it does tomorrow.

Want a great recipe for an easy Pot Roast for crock pot or slow cooker?

3-4 lbs boneless pot roast
1pkg Au Jus mix
1 pkg Italian seasoning mix (dressing)
1 10.5 oz beef broth
1/2 can of water

Place roast into pot, mix all the ingredients together and pour over roast. Cook for
9-11 hours or until tender!
