    Slow cooker recipes anybody?

    Hi everyone Haven't been on the forum for ages and just thought I would check in and see what was happening and I am soooooo glad that people are experimenting with the Ras el Hanout spice mix I introduced to this thread. I made it this week for the first time in ages and I realised that I looooooooooooove that spice mix. Happy New Year to you all. Sel x

    Slow cooker recipes anybody?

    Hiya Dreamy and Ickle Pickle Glad you are experimenting with the Ras el Hanout, everyone I have given it too has loved it. I also bought some at Christmas and everyone who has used it has adored it. As for using fruit in recipes, I use alot of apples and cider with pork recipes and they are lovely.................. I have also used sultanas, currants and apricots in recipes but have yet to use figs. Oh, I have also used prunes in beef recipes to great effect. (getting hungry now) Enjoy experimenting, that is what it is all about. Sel

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hiya Dreamy and Giddy and everyone else thereafter Both of you have hit it on the head (or is it nail? crickey my brain is still sleeping....lol) I know I haven't been on much lately due to bits and pieces and knitting like a loony but I have to say also that everyone of you has helped me through a really hard year. I may not post all the time but I do read threads and laugh and cry with you all. If it wasn't for my knitting, my knitting mags and you my knitty buddies I probably wouldn't have an outlet to get away from it all. I want to wish you all a happy jolly time with you and yours and a lucky prosperous and wonderful knitty 2010. And yes, I can't remember who mentioned it before me but wouldn't it be great to meet in person? What a party we would have right enough. Lost of love best wishes and hugs Sel x PS gonna be in the kitchen today, and have a fingerless mitt to finish........................is there enough time? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

That seems to be it.............I honestly thought I had more...........mind you I have finished my ghosties and pumpkins for le weekend. Selmoon x

    I dont like Mondays

    Hiya everyone Haven't been around much, I am usually on at the weekend but was visiting friends for a change. The best bit was actually having a whole train carriage to myself and knitting away happy as larry. When it was time to get off I was soooo disappointed as I was enjoying myself that much. I have had a laugh reading all the tights/knickers stories and it made me think of my tights/stockings moment. It must have been about 15 years or so ago when I was seeing the boyfriend that night (now husband) I remember making a big effort and getting all dolled up with make up, wearing a skirt and stockings ( the ones that are supposed to stay up themselves without the suspenders) ................... anyway after getting off the bus and walking down the busy main road with loads of people and traffic I was struggling to keep one of the stockings up as it kept slipping down no matter how many times I kept howking it up.........the other was ok...............eventually the blinking thing fell down. I was mortified as this thing was lying on my foot......I just bent down took my shoe off and stuffed it in my jacket pocket. The other stayed up and I just took it off when I got in. Embarassing then, but easy to laugh at now. BTW, I have never worn them again because they do not stay up, better with the sussies... Anyway, have a good night everyone. I am busy knitting wee ghosties and pumpkins for the office. Ohhhh and my subscription confirmation came thro with my freebies..........yipee..... Selmoon
