Three weeks ago my lovely auntie gave me some very important advice. First was do not leave the house without lipstick on and the second wonderful piece of advice was to buy AND use a slow cooker. She was right about the two. I have since used my slow cooker. In the morning I feel like I am mixing a magical potion. Depending upon what I took out of the freezer the night before to defrost and what fresh veggies are in the fridge, I literally empty them into the pot, add whatever spices I fancy that day, sometimes I add a can of chopped tomatoes, I switch the button on, set the timer and voila I come home to a hot and tasty meal! It’s really that easy.
