Hasn't it turned cold? I was chilly in bed on Friday night so I went and bought a new quilt on Saturday, a 10.5 tog. We used a 4.5 tog all last winter, I don't know why I didn't feel the cold then. I changed all the bedding yesterday and I was so snug and warm last night, it was lovely.
My slow cooker makes an appearance as soon as the cooler weather arrives. I don't use it during the summer months but I love it for making stews and casseroles, good hearty meals. I included beef, potatoes, carrots, swede, parsnips and onions, you can't really tell how much food there was but this is a 6.5l slow cooker so it's big. I bought it when the family was at home so it's a bit big now for just the two of us but I make extra and then it does for more than one meal.
Excuse the dribbles on the plate, Mick dished up and he's not the most careful!
It was delicious, even if I say so myself, and plenty of leftovers for another cold day.
