I was running my Crockpot overnight to cook a new batch of legumes. Different ones than last week. There are so many different legumes! This batch will last me about a week. I put it in pots and tubs once it’s cooled down. In the microwave, I then cook a batch of brown rice, with some white rice mixed in, every few days.
That Crockpot provided some heat, so there was no need to run a heater.
My feet were cold, however, and weren’t getting any warmer. So I got up, put the kettle on and filled a hot-water bottle.
