    my eye is actually looking at the giant/pearly couscous! i tried to cook some recently, followed all the instructions on the packet – but it was gluggy and horrid! not what i expected!

      Oh that is not good e, it can happen if you cook it for too long. Strange that the instructions were not correct on the box. I hope that you get to give it another try.

    Lovely looking recipe Kyrstie. I do love pomegranate molasses.

    I use my slow cooker all year round. In summer I stick it outside and use it to cook large batches of beans and chickpeas for tossing in salads and for dips. You can freeze those that you don’t use immediately. This summer I am also going to try making chicken stock in the slow cooker for cooking grains. I usually let my stock tick along on the stove for a couple of days and can’t bear the thought of this in summer.

    Oooh, lamb shanks! I had some going in my slow cooker last week, but with simpler flavours than yours. The beauty of the slow cooker and lamb shanks in the slow cooker is that humble ingredients are transferred into insane flavour. I also love mine for soup to stock the freezer with – pea and ham was made last night. My kids love a slow cooker chicken satay that I make which is a bit less wintry than most other things.
    I had breakfast at a quirky little cafe a couple of weeks ago with my husband on a very rare kid-free outing. I had what they called Turkish eggs, basically pide bread spread with babaganoush, topped with a poached egg then spinkled with sumac and around that was drizzled a pomegranate syrup. It was delicious!

      Ohhhh Slow cooker satay sounds like something I would like to try. Your Turkish egg meal sounds divine! Lucky you getting a kid free outing, I understand how special that is as we rarely get one of those :-)
