Evening all. Need to take the decs down I suppose. I hate doing it
My slow cooker has a ceramic style casserole insert - I suppose so that you can serve at the table and it looks half decent. It's a bit of a pain to wash but fine if you have a dishwasher. Like obelixx, I really prefer using my Le Creuset casseroles and putting them in a low oven, but the slow cooker's handy if I get one of the girls to put something on. I think the tomatoes create the issue of the water more than anything - it's usually goulash I do in it. I do brisket which is really good, but I probably don't use it as often as I could - I should do soup but I still prefer a big pot for that.
Lesley - if that robin of mine doesn't watch, he'll have an a**e the size of two a***s before long, and won't be able to get off the ground if a cat comes by
No 'poky' snowdrops here yet. Crocus have got little nubs showing. I have a weird situation of having an oak leaf Hydrangea in it's new raised bed, still covered in foliage, but I underplanted it with species tulips and crocus and they can't get any light now. What's a girl to do?
Saw that prog advertised T'bird, but I didn't watch it. I should get it on catch up. I did record one last night about avalanches though. Running out of room on the thingy on the tv - too much stuff either not watched or I haven't deleted yet...
