Long time no blog but I have an excuse :) 

I ended up in emergency last week- not being able to breathe is a bit of a problem.
On the mend now- just been busy with other bits and pieces and a MIL visit thrown in as well.

Got cold...blah

I'm as sick as that proverbial dog. I had great posting plans and ideas but alas my face is aching, nose is running, chest is wheezing and MIL is coming end of the week.
Miss A is sick (but still has WAY too much energy!- but only when she's at home...if I take her to an activity she refuses to move- go figure!) 
Mr Z has a cough and is farting alot (not related I am sure LOL!) but is otherwise a delight.

Mastrad Oven Glove

Cooks Kitchen: Appliances: Mastrad Orka Large Silicone Oven Mitt - Blue
Well I have loved this glove (Mastrad) for a long time (kinky eh?) and it got burnt -yes burnt the other day- and has a little slit up it on one side....don't ask me how it happened but a stove top element was involved. It's still useable but the burn mark bothers me! It's a great oven glove and a nice design.

Slow Cooking

Ok its the season for slow cooking delectable meats that are mega soft and full of flavour.

Some sites specifically for slow cooking

Also I made the Chocolate Guiness Cake- and its a good one! It's very much like the texture of a Devils Food cake.
