Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been busy with the kids. And my ex-bro-in-law, a follower of this blog and a really funny dude, died, which was quite a shock for me. Hopefully, I'll be blogging more often again from now on.
On a more positive note, I bought a 3.5-litre slow-cooker at Argos for £7.99 and I love it (the Cookworks round one, which is currently unavailable, or else I would link to it). What a steal. I also bought this book, which is outstanding. There is such a wide variety of food and drink in that book. My favourite slow-cooker recipe so far is the cornbread and beans. I had no idea you could make things like cornbread in a slow-cooker! I also had no idea how tasty cornbread could be.
I also got a Belgian waffle maker, which arrived today, worked for 4 rounds of waffles, and promptly broke. The good news is they are sending me a replacement for free (and I don't even have to bother sending the broken one back). Their customer service guy sounded really cute, too. ;D
That is a veritable spending spree for me. I usually only buy food and tea. Don't worry, though, I did have a gift certificate for the book, so I'm not a total spending fool.
OOH, and I finally got my head around knitting top-down raglans without a pattern. Woo! Lots of sweaters on the way....
Finally, I discovered vegan quiche. I was kind of indifferent to quiche in my pregan days, but now I love it. I started with this recipe for mini crustless tofu quiches and have moved on to crusty quiche with all sorts of different veggies.
What have YOU been cooking? Do you have a favourite slow-cooker recipe? Are you laughing at me for shopping at Argos?
