|Chicken and Leek Pie (and yes, I was a dork with excess pastry)|
To add to this, I tend to be drawn to cooking things that take forever, and require me to be standing at the oven stirring things, or chopping vegetables for infinite periods of time, or using about five different pots.
For this reason, Sunday tends to be a really good day in my household - that's when I make yummy things like this Chicken and Leek pie or Slow-cooked beef stew with dumplings. Yummo!
But during the week, my after work efforts extend to cheese on toast (if husband is working) or terribly lazy things like store bought ravioli and a jar of pasta sauce. As I've been brought up on home cooked meals, this has started to bother me!
|Slow cooked beef and dumplings|
So I was wondering - does anyone have any tried and tested slow cooker recipes they can recommend? I tried one from this site last weekend, but it was a little bland. I tend to prefer recipes with a bit of a kick to then, or at least some strong flavours.
Or, just how about other quick and easy dinner ideas? My husband and I eat just about anything, but hearty, comfort food (particularly this time of year!) would be perfect!
My plan is to write up a shopping list, order our groceries on line, and then next week will be my "cook everyday" challenge. I reckon I can do it!
Thanks so much for your help!
