    All Day Macaroni and Cheese

    2 cups macaroni

    4 cups grated cheese

    1 can evaporated milk

    1 1/2 cups milk

    In a large pot cook macaroni pasta until al dente. Drain. In a large bowl, mix together 3 cups of the cheese, cooked macaroni, evaporated milk, milk, eggs, and salt and pepper.

    Transfer to a slow cooker which has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of cheese.

    ^ jasminesmum my DH is going to LURVE that. He loves mac and cheese but the recipe we have is a PIA and makes a huge mess so we rarely do it. I'm going to try this out on the weekend

    We do an easy Roast Chicken in our slow cooker:

    You just need a chook, a pack of french onion soup mix (the generic one is fine), and 2 lemons

    Pat the chook dry, rub the soup mix into the chicken all over to give it colour.
    Stick one whole unpeeled lemon in it's bum (poke some holes in the lemon with a fork to let the aroma out). This is optional - still tastes great without it we just like it.
    Cut the remaining lemon into quarters and place in bottom of SC. Place chooky on top and cook for about 6 hours on low.

    Easy as, even DH can do this. We've also used oranges for something different

    Another easy one is Beef Stroganoff

    500g chuck steak cubed
    1 onion roughly diced
    1 satchet beef strog flavour mix (Maggi, McCormicks, whatever)
    1 tin tomatoes
    3/4 tub sour cream

    Put everything into SC except sour cream. Cook for 6 hours on low.
    1/2 hour before serving stir in sour cream to taste
    Serve with pasta or rice
    YUM

    My favorite meal at the moment is Beef Stew. I get a Kg of diced beef from the butcher...doesnt matter if its tuff or fatty...it all gets cooked off. Chop up some carrot,onion, beans, celery, ect....chuck it all in the slow cooker around 12ish...add a couple of cups of water (just enough to nearly cover the meat and veg) and a beef stock cube or two....

    7pm....turn it off, open it up...and YUM...meal in a pot. If you want you just make some mash spud to go with it! Plus you have oodles left over for lunch/dinner the next day or to freeze.

    Another one is a kg of diced beef, half a jar of chilly chuttney, beans, onion, carrot, ect....tin of pealed tomatos, tab sugar, salt and pepper....YUM! It make the nicest tomato based casserole! Nice and sweet, like a curry.

    This is a fantastic thread! I can't wait to get a slow cooker and try some of these out!

    Just wondering, though... Some of you mentioned that you go to work and come home and dinner is ready. Are you able to leave them on when you're not in the house? Do they automatically turn themselves off? I'd hate to come home and find the house burnt down!

    Jane1980 - Most recipies require cooking for about 7-8 hours, so for some people that would be the time they are at work if you know what I mean. Mine doesnt turn off automatically, but some might. Ive only left the house with mine going for no more than 3 hours.

    Thanks, Briannabear!

    I think I would get too nervous to leave it on, but it would be great for weekends still!
