Today I purchased (with my Christmas cash) a slow cooker. Nothing special about that I hear you say...well if you bear in mind that I used to have one about ten years ago and haven't used one since - you'll realise that it's a monumental day.
When I lived with Voldemort (shudder) he was into cooking in a big way. He'd spend hours slaving over a hot stove, making a god-awful mess and 'pretending' that it was all rather difficult. He'd use every utensil and every pan...and the result was ...well....okay...but I have to say - nothing really special....If I cooked anything he would stand over me to 'make sure I was doing it right' (pillock).
Anyway - I downloaded this recipe - went and bought the stuff - bish bash bosh - and it was bloody lovely. Not difficult at all. Really...and if you remember that I created a delish Xmas lunch for eight people last week for the first time in about 25 years....well - I really can't see what all the fuss is about.
