Crazy for my crockpot
Most people count down the days, hours and minutes til big events - like birthdays, weddings and first dates with cute boys. Me? I count down the seconds til trying a new recipe!
This long weekend (thank you for having a birthday, Queenie!) I'm trying out my new crockpot -sorry, make that my mum's old crockpot circa late 1970s. It's hilarious - it's bright orange with kind of a browny/olive ceramic inner that you can't remove from the outer shell. I'm guessing it's going to make cleaning a nightmare, but my housemate's away for the weekend, so it doesn't matter how much mess I make.
Lots of my friends have been gushing about their slow-cookers lately (albeit the funky stainless posh types) and when I mentioned it to Mum she was more than happy to make room in her kitchen and gladly hand over her ancient pot to me. Who knows if the wiring still works or whether I'll short circuit my power board - I'll guess we'll have to wait and see!
Any suggestions for crockpot recipes? They can't be too hard, can they?!?
