Using the slow cooker in summer
Posted 11 October 2012 - 04:30 PM
However as the weather warms up the usual recipes I would do in the slow cooker feel too heavy for summer.
Does anyone use their slow cooker in summer. We do use the BBQ a lot in summer which hubby cooks but in summer our routine gets very busy usually do still using the slow cooker would come in handy.
Any summer recipes or ideas?

I occasionally do vego Indian food too.
I was going to suggest pulled pork, I've had it from a smoker before so slow cooking is probably an option.
This website has some good ideas... http://www.myrecipes...00420000011460/

Also do pasta sauces and chuck the pasta in towards the end. Tonight I used it to make veggie and lentil dahl.
There is a good book by Sally Wise that has so many ideas that I'd never thought of.
But I'm hearing you about low energy levels in the afternoon. If I didn't get dinner organised earlier in the day, lord only knows what my family would be eating.

I've just been doing the normal slow cooker things, but I know they're going to get too heavy when it eventually warms up - Will be stalking for replies
