thanks for that, i must have been brain dead to have forgotten that! i have managed with the good ol snipping tool that is part of visita operating system (one of the few good things about it!) now i just need to save up for some more ink cartridges - mine have all emptied at the same time for once- i'll have to get into a pattern of buying one color cartridge per fortnight (mind you i did see a brother multi function unit that would scan and print up to A3 and that was $150 when all my cartridges for my current printer is almost $90- A3 would be handy for my hobby of graphite sketching- have to do some research to see what kind of reports they give for the new printer

but thanks for the reminder again!, my computer may be on its last legs i fear as i had the Blue screen of feath last week, thanfully going to safe mode and restarting in a previous time when the system was stable worked- i just lost some minor files -good reminder to use restore points but the blue scrren of death is a real worry!!

OK - now this is one of the things I do if I haven't slept or I am having a bad day. Don and Tom will cringe here :lol:

If you have a slow cooker, put whatever veggies you have on hand in the bottom and then add a small chicken or any piece of meat that you would roast. A small piece of lamb is nice but it is almost unaffordable at the moment! Onion, celery and sliced carrots always give a good flavour and then you can add some potato or sweet potato and mushrooms. Then take one of those prepared sauce mixes that you have bought when they were on special for occasions just like this and pour it over the top. That's it! It actually works. Don't add any water or it will all get too watery. It is not like a traditional roast that you do in the oven, but it is good, nutritious food and you won't have had to do much. It is also yummy. You might want to thicken the gravy with a bit of cornflour but it isn't always necessary.

You can steam a green vegetable if you are able or you can add some peas or beans to the slow cooker about half way through.

Obviously, you can also add chopped meat on top of the veggies instead of the roast, it just depends on how much energy you have and what meat you have at the ready.

I can't tell you how long to cook it for because all slow cookers are different and the newer ones seem to cook faster. I usually do this at around 1.30-2.00pm on high and it is ready by around 6pm.

Not rocket science but it has been a lifesaver for me on many occasions, both home and away.

PS. If you want to chuck a tad of red wine in there or some fresh herbs - that's nice too.

Not every day is a good day, but there is good in every day.

Mary love using the slow cooker especially in winter for good hardy meals, the only bit I object to is the prepared sauces, they may be quick and easy, taste not my cup of tea.
