Lissa G here... Wow!, This recipe had all the promise of an amazing treat for my lovely husband Jimmy. I mean, it says pork roll and roley poley all in one sentence. Anyway, It was a Tuesday and I had to leave for "work" extra early cause some big shot bosses were coming down from corporate just to see me and my boss says I should "take care" of them. So i hurried up, got dressed and as I was leaving, gathered up the ingredients and place them in the crock pot for 12 hours on medium heat. I left a note to Jimmy that when he gets home from his copier operators job to just roll up the pork and other stuff and dig in. What I didn't anticipate was that when you cook thyme and sage in a crock pot for 12 hours at 300 degrees, it vaporizes some long chemical compounds that mix and form some dangerous gas. That night at 7 when he got home, Jimmy took off the crock pot lid and promptly passed out from the fumes. He woke up about 10 hours later as I was just getting home at 5 am. After cleaning myself up a little, I helped him down to the basement where we keep a cot for him so he can recouperate. We now learned a valuable lesson and will never do that again, I'll always clean up fefore I get home that way if there's anything going on, I'll be ready. Jimmy has almost completely recovered, the loss of memory and cognitive reasoning is almost abated and pretty soon, he's be eating solid food again. Thank God for the dog who he fell on instead of the concrete floor in the kitchen.
