fast but slow............

Time is flying by...........this time in 2 weeks i'll be in Sydney at the Quilt show.................catching up with lots of friends...meeting some online friends......checking out the amazing quilts.........shopping supporting the shops who make the effort to go to the quilt show............I know it is a huge effort and I was disappointed to find out this last week that a shop I loved visiting last year isn't going this year  :(
Anyway the blog meet is going to be on the Friday and i'll put some details up when and what time etc in the next few days...........

The slow bit is the slow cooker marathon I was on.............4 days in a row I cooked in mine and this in another recipe we used...........I wasn't in town so couldn't try some of your recipes........
heard a couple of girls have tried Lisa's whole chicken and said it was beautiful............
&&&

Butter Chicken........
sort of followed the recipe...........I had a couple of trays of chicken legs and put them all in the slow cooker and added the packed mix and onion, 1/2 cup tomato paste and a large tin of crushed tomatoes (my addition to cover the chicken a bit better)..........it worked out fine and I served it on a bed of rice..........
Thanks to all the girls who put up posts and/or a tip/recipe in the comments............I added that post to the left sidebar and added more links to the girls posts as they have put them up..........i'll still add more as I find them............need to go shopping for a few ingredients for some.........
&&
Supposed to have some friends coming to sew this weekend but rain is forecast so who knows what may happen.............
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  1. Wish I was coming to Sydney. Remember when we met you there! Alas school reports are looming, and I am blog hopping between names on a roll. I must get inspired with my slow cooker!

  4. Still hoping to be there on Friday (fingers crossed). Hope your butter chicken was better than mine - couldn't even post about it, it was very average.
