Saturday Again

Six word Saturday button

Once again it’s Saturday and time for six word Saturday.
Today my six words are

Man in the kitchen making dinner.

My friend has been talking about using his slow cooker for ages.  We have had discussions about what one cooks in it and yesterday he announced that he was cooking corned beef in his slow cooker.

I am very impressed.  He chopped the vegetables and put them in the pot together with the beef and he has now left it to cook for 8 hours.  Meantime he invited his sister-in-law and her husband to join us for dinner.  My only contribution is to make the white onion sauce for the meat.  Easy peasy as they say.

Pot roast

For over 40 years I was married to a chef aka man who loved to spend time in the kitchen and in later years when he had retired, we had a reversal of roles when entertaining.  He cooked and I poured the drinks.  I wonder if this is going to happen again tonight.

  1. I love the Crock Pot. I think I’d use it more if we could store it in a more convenient location. Sounds like a nice dinner and get-together was planned!


  2. Oooh, sounds wonderful … enjoy. 🙂


  3. I love my crock pot as well. One of the best and simplest things I make in it is Beef Rendang – a Malaysian beef curry. It is so easy – just put the raw meat, coconut milk, raw onions, herbs and spices in the pot, leave for 8 hours and its done and delicious. I used to fry up the meat and onions beforehand but discovered that throwing everything in raw actually produces a much more authentic result and for less effort!
    And then there’s soup! Don’t get me started on crock pot soup….


  4. Help in the kitchen, how nice!
