I've lived in several states too --
Missouri -- where you can buy anything at the grocery store or the gas station even
Kentucky -- the county I lived in was "moist" and you could buy drinks at restaurants and bars, but anything packaged you would have to go to another county (or state) to buy wine/beer/liquor.
Pennsylvania -- like it's been said - beer at one store, wine and liquor at another, total pain if you need more than one option

We have this pan and LOVE it and use it all the time. Mostly we use it a lot like a skillet, but some of the things we love about it are

-- plenty of space to cook nearly anything.
-- the handle of the lid is perfect, you don't even need a hot mitt to protect your hands when you remove it, unlike a lot of knob handles
-- the little loop handles make it easy to store too, because there's no giant skillet handle getting in the way
-- also love the loop handles because its easy to carry to the table, the weight is distributed between both hands, instead of one trying to balance a heavy skillet.
-- it's durable, we can use pretty much any utensil we have in the kitchen in this pan

Sadly, Kroger is the best grocery store in the small town where I go to school.

I'm seeing those filled with about three cherries each, with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Framed photos maybe in b&w or antiqued shades, hints of team colors, shadowboxes with memorabilia, subtly sports themed items.

I like brown leather furniture, that deep chocolate-y brown.

I've also seen some neat displays of old tickets, programs, etc under the glass on coffee tables.

Constant Comment from Bigelow. My aunt used to serve it when I was little, and I "refound" it a couple years ago.

I'd hide my PJs in there, and maybe my cell phone at night, since I like to keep it close.

Chili is great for big groups... You can even have several types going in different crock pots. We usually have crackers, cheese, sour cream, noodles and such going for toppings.

We've also done the pasta route, with the sauces in crock pots. One was just a marinara, one with meatballs in the sauce, and one a meat sauce. Just remember to toss the noodles in either butter or oil to keep them from sticking to one another since guests are adding the sauce later. Don't forget Parmesan cheese, and lots of crusty bread.

If you do a big pot of stew, but don't have a lot of bowls, we've also served such items in coffee mugs, so we would have less waste when the whole thing was through.
