    Morning MG.

    A very interesting read and full of info.

    Being a team that are retired we have plenty of time on our hands and don't have to start on the evening meal after arriving home from work.

    I see the the benifits of the slow cooker and a change in variety of what we eat is always good and doesn't get boring.

    Take care and have a nice day.
