Much as I hate frying beef and onions at 8 o'clock in the morning when it comes to the middle of the afternoon I LOVE the fact that dinner is done, quietly cooking away and will be ready as needed. I had thought I would do some ginger egg fried rice with it, with the rice leftover from last night's tea, but as it's been cooking today I realise that, although there is a lot of ginger, the dish is more meditteranean with the bay leaves and balsamic vinegar. Maybe couscous, maybe jacket potatoes? Both easy and effortless!
The crock pot came out of the garage last week and I have been busily looking for recipes. The local library had about dozen books on the subject, of which 8 now sit on my unit! I wasn't aware of crock pots, aka slow cookers, until I came to New Zealand and my repertoire is somewhat small. I plan to try out a few of the delicious sounding recipes over the coming weeks and hopefully there'll be some winners in there.
And for pudding?
Fruit and greek yoghurt topped with homemade granola - yum!!!!
What are you and yours having to eat tonight? x
