In the eye of the beholder ...

I had thought ahead and put a pot roast in the slow cooker before I went to the eye doctor. My new follow up instructions from the doc's office said to lie down for two hours, nose pointed at the ceiling, after arriving back home. Not in those exact words, you understand, but close. So as not to expire of boredom, I turned on the television. The room was dark. I could only listen, not view.

When I woke up (I defy almost anyone not to fall asleep under those circumstances), my mouth was dry and the house smelled like dinner. The cat thought the aroma was some
new kind of air freshener.

Before my next eye appointment, I really should get an audio book from the library.

Maybe take a bottle of H20 for your bedside table as well. The smell is dinner is so nice and to sleep while dinner is cooking, priceless.

What's next, Pot Roast Candles? Pot Roast Incense Burners? Pot Roast Perfume, guaranteed to entice a man to follow you around the supermarket....

I think we're on to something. If you are trying to sell your house, say, then pot roast candles would make it smell homey. Apple cinnamon candles can be found everywhere. But pot roast? We should patent it!

Why stop there, the pot roast candle is a good idea. Why not include bbq chicken, steak, and other red meat delicacies.

Yankee Candles has a few fruits and vegetable scents, but none in the area of beef or pork.
