I got off to a flyer this morning. After getting the usual stuff sorted, I whizzed up some grass fed bison in the food processor and cooked up a chilli, just like the one in the recipe section.
Rather than stand over the stove, I simply cooked it in the pan until I brought it to the boil, then poured it into the slow cooker and went to work. (I always add about a third more liquid when doing it like this, to save it drying out).
When I came home the kitchen smelled lovely and I'm just waiting for everyone else to turn up before I plate up.
Who said proper cooking had to involve effort?
