    Well, today is one of the reasons why I adore my slow cooker.

    We were working outside all day, so were not exactly warm.

    Last night I prepared the various veg and chopped the steak, this morning I browned off the steak, bunged everything else in the slow cooker, and we came home to a lovely stew

    Good evening Elite.
    Hoping everyone is warm, happy and well. Hugs to those not so.
    Late finish at work so missed the porridge - not going back now! But thanks to OP & testers.
    Thanks to whoever mentioned Grainger Games for trading in the AP Pixies. They paid me 29.70 cash x 2 so 8.72 profit on each after unlocking.
