Slow cooker round two.

I need to get better with this whole blogging thing (have I said that before?), I promise I will!

Today marks the second time I have used my slow cooker, in over the year and a half I have owned it. I don't really know why I don't use it, maybe it's because I have to start thinking about tea time food either 9PM the night before, or before work (which is never going to happen!). I always think it's going to be a faff too, but it wasn't, at all. 

So (not the best picture) here is our beef ghoulash:

It was still steaming when I took the picture, so couldn't avoid it! Oops. I served mine with two slices of bread, whilst OH had some rice and about 6 slices of bread! It's very yummy and low in fat too, and really simple to make! 

So, over the next few weeks I am going to investigate slow cooker recipes, watch this space...

A new month...

Again, I have been lacking in the blogging department. I just feel like I never have anything to say! Plus I seem to always be busy doing wedding things, or packing seen as we're now moving house! In less than 2 weeks! Mad. 

However, my current obsession is this:

This is half a portion of porridge, made with half skimmed milk half water, with half a banana and 1 tablespoon peanut butter! It is so so so amazing, and very filling. The peanut butter/banana combination is divine, especially as the peanut butter melts slightly in the hot porridge. Served with green tea, of course ;)

I have had this for tea:

A sweet chili stir fry with noodles. Delish!

Now then, where's that cardboard box gone.....
