Hearty Slow Cooker and Leek and Potato Soup with Crispy Bacon Bits Apparently we have a rather large storm on the way, which is going to be comparable to the one in the 1987.  However, I wasn’t in the UK in the 80s so I missed it but I have read ‘Rumours of a Hurricane’ […]

Stir Free Sausage and Tomato Risotto Everyone is a sucker for a photo of a cute puppy, right?  Don’t worry it will all make sense soon. I don’t often make Risotto as I don’t have the time or patience to be standing at the cooker for 40-50 minutes stirring.  However, I came across this recipe […]

Meal Planning Monday – 29th April 2013

I do find meal planning a bit of a slog.  I usually sit down on a Sunday with my Slow Cooker Books and start trawling for recipes and making my shopping list.  Sometimes I wish I was one of those people who had a set menu every week but always keen to try new recipes. […]

I’m stuck in this limbo between Winter and Spring.  I know it’s supposed to be Spring but I kept finding myself still choosing winter comfort food when planning my meals this week; Two Bean Chilli, Sausage and Puy Lentils and Spaghetti Bolognaise. I’ve never made the Salt Cod before and in truth I’m using up […]

My daughter has now been off school for 18 days!  18 WHOLE DAYS!  I’m gagging for her to get back to school tomorrow and a semblance of a routine restored.  Her school had an inset today (just what we needed after two weeks off),  but  she was still supposed to go to child-care but threw […]

Week two of school holidays!  I’m on my knees but have ordered in a case of wine so I should survive.  As always, the majority of our meals this week will be done in a slow cooker.  Well, actually they all will be. On Mondays we do #meatfree, but no chance I will convince our […]

Just sitting around on Easter Monday waiting for my groceries to be delivered so I thought I’d post about my weekly meal plan.  My handwriting really is appalling! We’ve done nothing but eat all weekend, so tonight we are just having soup for dinner.  I really can’t face much more than that. As it’s school holidays […]

This week’s meals have been inspired by the weather.  I can’t believe the difference between now and this time last year! As always, I will predominantly be using my Slow Cooker and am looking forward to trying some new recipes.  I’m not convinced about the Marmalade Oxtail but always willing to have a go.  I […]
