On a better note, I did manage to get most of the items on my list (I made a list ) including a 2.6kg smoked gammon that was on special offer for £6. Going to cook that tomorrow in my SC in apple juice and have it as our roast. Did one that way on Christmas Eve and it was the best gammon I'd ever tasted. Leftovers will be used in a pie and for sarnies in the week. Spent £60 and another £3.99 in c*-*p on thurs. Both shops I'm including as it was out of january's budget. My budget will go up to 27th this month, as pay day is on the 28th.
Hope everyone had a lovely new year and aren't suffering. I am as I over endulged on the alcohol last night

How do you make your rice pudding, angelatgraceland?
I use the pudding rice, which costs more than shortgrain, so will be interested to hear how it turns out.

Morning all just updating spends. I have done a monthly shop for all the random dry stuff needed and my meat order which is quietly sitting in the freezer.
Am I right in thinking that it needs to be totally full to work efficiently? Should i just put bottles of water in it to freeze and keep up the efficiency? Just until it gets totally full LOL!
Have a good new years day everyone!

The gammon and apple juice sounds lovely! Is there anything else you put on the slow cooker with it?

No, just an inch or so of apple juice and a bit of seasoning. I cooked it on high for about 5 hours then put it in the oven for about 20 mins with some honey and dijon mustard smeared over it. That was a smaller joint though, so I may cut this one in half and freeze before I cook it.
