Cooking

Since being at home more, I have started cooking again......my OH is delighted as he normally cooks.

Ages ago he mentioned a Bread Maker, and I poo pooed the idea saying bread is cheap enough to buy in the shops!

I bought one....and the results are terrific, the smell in the house is scrummy, so have been out and stocked up with ingredients, along with a few mixes already prepared, and cake mixes. Made a carrot cake this afternoon - looks good, not tried it yet though.

Also bought a slow cooker, thats got Carribean Chicken in it at the mo, so will let you know how that turns out.

How domestic have I become, I suppose it comes with the territory of becoming a mum again - to Harvey x

I bought a bread maker some time ago. For a few months I only made bread, never bought it. Unfortunately the novelty soon wore off. The great beastie of a machine is now residing out of sight in a cupboard. If I want nice fresh bread, I buy it

Haven't got a bread maker and daren't by one now since joining Weightwatchers! But I do have 2 slow cookers and I swear by them, they're the best thing since sliced bread! , especially with a husband who always comes home late for his dinner (only coz of work - I checked that out!!) plus I don't burn his dinner anymore when I get sidetracked on DW either

I dont do bread either, find it too hard going, but the OH loves it, plus he is normally late home from work......good thinking, I can stay even longer on here !!

His mother once told me she had cooked in a slow cooker, left it for the family, Nigel came home and ate the lot!!!!!

Glad your all domesticated again Trace and post some of that carrot cake my way it sounds delicious
