Not good! My spice mix was too hot for the kids. I didn't have any chilli powder so substituted with cayenne pepper and I quartered the amount.

The sauce was too thin and the chicken had no flavour underneath the spice.

I can see it would be nice if I pan fried the chicken or used thighs in the slow cooker instead of breast. And a thicker, more flavoursome sauce.

Not a total fail though, the kids still ate most of theirs.

DH was trying to put a new head on the tap outside and I don't know what he did, he had to turn off the water at the mains. But he got it fixed eventually with my BIL's help so it's all good :)

That sounds nice WACM. You could always try rubbing a marinade on the chicken before putting it into the slow cooker?

Steak and pan fried potatoes and grilled asparagus for us tonight

That looks yummy Shell. I have a slow cooker version which I like very much, the kids not so much.

We had bibimbap with beef bulgogi.

I want to do pulled pork, but I'm afraid of stuffing it up!

We had salmon cooked on the BBQ and salad. Didn't like the salmon, I thought it was overcooked and hubby said undercooked. Go figure....

Tonight I used up pumpkin from our neighbour, zucchini from my dad, bacon leftover from hubby's fishing trip & haloumi from my sister. I made a pasta dish with pesto & pan fried the leftovers. Was pretty good for a throw together meal :)
