Our first slow cooker has arrived and it's rather overdue. It should probably be in every home ed. family's basic supply kit! Now the boys are getting bigger we are out and about so much that we get back home late a lot. That, (combined with us having to, you know, earn a living), means that this is the only was to come in late to proper home-cooked comfort food before a good nights rest to re-fuel for another busy day.
