Crock Pot General Tso's Chicken

There are a lot of things that I’ve experienced over the years that I thought would be amazing but wound up being terrible ideas, like pregaming open bars, volunteering to do favors that I can’t possibly fit into my schedule, or watching Juan Pablo be this season’s Bachelor.  (Seriously, by the end of the Finale After-Show, I was ready to throw my TV out the window.  Anyone with me there?)
