Slow A'Cookin

Working hard. But found some time to sample the new slow cooker, one of my favourite wedding gifts.
I make Caponata quite a lot, a delicious summery dish from Sicily. I made it in the slow cooker and it worked quite well but the vegetables were a bit mushy. I think I need to use the slow setting instead.
But it was nice to have the vegies bubbling away and enjoy a cup of tea! And then back to the sewing room.

PS: I don't use the Cook and the Chef recipe but it looks yum! I make my caponata by heart and I always add cinnamon and some pine nuts. Yum!

It does take a while to get the hang on the darn things. I baked a cake in mine on the weekend but we haven't tasted it yet. It was banana and pumpkin and I had both ingredients almost ready to toss in the pantry and fridge so decided there was little to lose. Also used a gluten free flour, which could have drastic results. It's in the freezer for one of those "when folks pop by" moments.

Wowsers. My mum has that white bowl behind your cup of tea with the mushrooms on it.
