Slow Cooker

At Ailz's urging I've been using the slow cooker several times a week. It's almost as easy as microwaving a ready meal. At nine o'clock you gather together your ingredients, defrost 'em, chop 'em- whatever- then bung 'em in the pot (which takes about ten minutes all told), switch on, leave to simmer for four hours and there you are. I don't work from recipes. I reckon I've a reasonably good idea of what will go with what. Put it this way: I haven't produced anything inedible yet. (Touch wood).

Today the ingredients are: four chicken pieces, a tin of red kidney beans, a tin of tomatoes, a onion (chopped), a potato (chopped), chicken stock, garlic, herbs and seasoning.
