Home Cooking

I have been trying to find ways to make it easier to eat well.  I’ve noticed that I get tired around 5pm and sometimes I just can’t be bothered cooking.  This can lead to eating fast food or snacking to try to increase my energy levels.  While I was in America my friend used a slow cooker to make breakfast.  I hadn’t seen a slow cooker in years and had forgotten how useful it could be.

I bought one at the weekend and at the minute the room smells of the beef and ale stew I prepared at lunchtime.  I am hoping that being able to prepare dinner in the morning will stop we eating rubbish at night.

    Excellent work! Crock pots are one of the best inventions ever. I love that it just has the food ready right when I walk in the kitchen. So great. Can’t wait to hear about all the delicious stuff you make!

    Today I’m making Chili. I am quite excited by the slow cooker. The recipe book I got has some interesting dessert ideas that I want to try.

    Mind you yesterday I seemed to spend hours chopping vegetables. As well as the stew I made a Tomato and Red Pepper soup. It did take a while to chop everything and remove the skin from the tomatoes. Tasted amazing though. I was really surprised as it was the first time I had made a blended soup.
