And see, it's just like real food! Bubbling away there under those vegies are chicken pieces. Of course, I am also cooking lamb soup tonight. (The result of a webbered roast lamb dinner last night.) I just can't resist making stock after a roast! Soup is my favourite food I think. Enjoy the rest of your easter!

No. This isn't a photo from the 70's! This is really my kitchen (pine cupboards/lime benchtops which was made in the 70's I'm pretty sure). And the new appliance in the photo is not a crockpot, but a modern slow cooker! My Mum had a crockpot in the seventies and I remember pot roasts that she cooked in it. I have been thinking about getting one for a while now and on Saturday when Bradley and I were wandering the appliance aisles looking for a new toaster, (Ours died. It must have been all those hot cross buns!) we both wanted to get one at the same time, so we did. This morning I put food in it for the first time and it has been cooking away all day. It's pretty exciting, but I'm not sure what it will taste like! I'm sure Bradley was thinking that if he bought it I would quilt all day and there would still be dinner! ('Cause he knows that I am going to quilt all day, no matter what!) We'll see. So far it's been very un-labour-intensive. It might just work!
