There are occasions when being creative in the kitchen is a delightful way to spend time. And there are others where you’re feeling rather tired and you want supper on the table ASAP. 

With a bit of planning and a slow cooker, you don’t have to spend ages in the kitchen: start the slow cooker in the morning, and return in the evening to a delicious dish ready to be served.
