My continued adventures with a slowcooker…

Hi everyone 🙂

I’ve never had a slow cooker before, but have finally decided to take the plunge and purchase one (a 6L one at that!).

The 1st meal I cooked with it was a true DISASTER…but I’m not going to let that stop me!  So, onto todays adventures 🙂

I started with this recepie as a base and then changed a few things…

Here is my version of Spaghetti and Meatballs

600g beef mince
1 cup cornflake crumbs (add extra if you need too)
Fresh Thyme
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 small brown oninon (finely chopped)
2 eggs

1 jar leggo’s bolognese pasta sauce
1 x 400g tin crushed tomatoes
large squirt of tomato sauce
2 small – med carrots (diced)
1 med – large zuccini (diced)


1. Mix the ingredients for the meatballs in a bowl

2. Roll the meatballs (makes 14 – on the large side)

3. Brown the meatballs in a frypan

4. In the slow cooker, mix the sauce ingredients and add the meatballs (ensure they are covered with sauce).

5. Cook on LOW for 8 hours (stir once or twice during cook – you probably don’t have too, but I did 😀 )

Serve with cooked pasta

So here is what I thought about this meal:

Will I cook it again?

YES – it was YUMMY 🙂

Did the kids eat it?

The LOVED it 🙂

What do I score it?

I scored this one 5 yummies out of 5 🙂

Did I add or subtract anything from the recipe?

See above recepie 🙂

Would I add or subtract anything from the recipe next time?

Nope I would do it exactly the same 🙂

What recipes will be coming up soon?
(Not in any order – I just want to make them coz they look yum!)

Here is the receipe:

Chicken Tacos – but mine will probably end up being Burritos, as T loves Burritos more than Tacos 🙂
Hoisin Chicken

Chicken and Spaghetti
Apple Butter

Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Chicken burrito Bowl
Corn on the cob – it’s not one of my favourite sides, but the Boys in this house LOVE corn!
Spaghetti Sauce
Butternut squash and coconut risotto – we are big pumpkin risotto eaters in this house so this will be a must try.
Asian chicken lettuce wraps – this one might be good when the weather gets warmer too 🙂
Beef Bourguignon
Honey Garlic Meatballs
Do you have any favourite recipes you think I should try?  Leave a comment for me if you do!
I’ll probably add to this list as I go…I’m sure to find more I want to make! 🙂
Happy tummy makes a happy mummy ;P
