MMMmmmm Crockpot/Slow cooker
Ok the only good thing about winter is stew, and since the lovely ladies of my family deicided I need a slow cooker for my wedding present I have been in stew heaven.
Todays dish is a 10hour slow cooked beef stew, mmmm so very very tender. I have always stayed away from cook beef stews and casseroles in the past because the meat came out all chewy and tough, but now the slow cooker fixes everything.
I've also done a Honey Soy chicken and made a batch of chicken stock for the next time I make soup. And I love the way the house smells fantastic when I get home.
Also its helping to save time and money, yay. Cheap cuts of meat come out tasting great and I make big batches of things and freeze them for dinner later in the week.
