    What was the last new recipe you tried? Do you often try out new things or tend to stick to what you know? I really what to cook more new things Pinterest has loads of ideas, it's just getting on and buying what I need.

    This is the one I plan on doing this week.

    Well I sorta did this, I was sure there was a shoulder of lamb in the freezer, and it turns out there was only a leg of lamb, so that was the first change, I got to use olive oil on it, nevermind! I think I should have taken it out of the slow cooker a bit earlier, it tastes okay but wasn't falling off the bone like I hoped.

    Maybe it needed longer to cook so it was falling off the bone. When I use the slow cooker it should cook until the meat starts to fall apart...that's how I do it, even for a joint of meat rather than a stew.

    I tend to stick to what I know but occasionally I'll find a new recipe and I'll enjoy it. Especially in the Slow Cooker. There are a few slow cooker recipes on Slimming World that are good. Like diet coke chicken and pulled pork.

    I need to look up more ideas for the slow cooker, and maybe try and get a better control of the portions

    Going to make a chicken curry in the slow cooker this weekend, usually just make a curry out of the jar, but I'm going to attempt to make one with spices and everything! Well I've found an easy korma recipe on pinterest so we'll see!

    I don't know if this is new for you, but it's totally a Brazilian thing:

    * 1 can of condensed milk
    * 2 table spoons of butter
    * 2 table spoons of chocolate

    Stir it all on low fire, past boil, until it gets a harder consistency/texture.

    It is Brazilian's favorite sweet. - Careful: It is really sweet!!!

    The BBC good food website is great for recipes, and they are usually already on the Myfitnesspal app as well so I don't have to figure out the nutritional values.
