    Its just from the steam etc. And the actual pot is really hot. The house does warm up.

    I don't use mine in summer much for that reason.

    Mine doesn't get overly hot itself so would be perfect for summer over the stove/oven, but my problem is I don't have many summer type recipes to do in it but I intend to change that. I'm getting a new slow cooker for my birthday, well when I can find the one I want and tell DH so he can pick it up for me, and I will still keep my older smaller one as I can see having 2 coming in handy.

    I've been on Pinterest finding summer recipes for slow cooker along with dump bag recipes so I can do a stack up before DS3 is born.

    Mine doesn't get hot at all, I just prefer to have summer type foods when it is hot. Like grilled fish and a yummy salad.

    Ugh! Ladies! I made the lamb obsession last night since everyone is so...obsessed...on here. I'm not the hugest fan of lamb but thought I'd make it for DH. Well....DH's response after eating it was that if I wasn't pregnant he'd give me some loving😳...because I can't have loving pregnant😉. BUT!!! I never even tasted it! Pretty much since I put all the ingredients in the cooker the smell has made me want to vomit! And now our house reeks of lamb obsession and I'm gagging 😷. Granted I'm 6 weeks and the morning sickness has started and I'm gagging at anything I find gross but DH better savor his leftovers because I don't think I can bring myself to make it again.

    You not alone. I have seen other people say it too. Others that cook it on their verandas so they don't have to smell it cook or cook it on days they are not home because smell St the beginning I'd worse than the end.
    Btw we were that impressed by it. Lamb is a rare treat here so we don't waste it with this recipe

    Phew! I thought I may be kicked out of the thread! 😉. I was actually a vegetarian before I had DS but have gone pretty slack as I can't be bothered making two or three different meals every night for all of us. Lamb isn't big in America so it's a flavor and smell that has taken me ages to even be remotely ok with but DH, being a true Aussie bloke can think of nothing better than some lamb, maybe I'll give him the recipe to make for himself while DS and I are overseas in November...😉

    Eta: it's freezing this morning but I think I need to crack some windows!! Pewwwwww!

    I just added my dinosaur pasta to my pasta sauce that has been cooking since lunchtime. It smells yummy and kids are restless wanting to eat now.

    Stuffed capsicums - so yum! The filling is so tasty. It's the chorizo & quinoa stuffed capsicums from slow cooker central website. The recipe is with rolled steak too but I find the capsicum filling enough! We have it with grilled asparagus

    I have fudge going this morning which will be Malteser fudge when it's finished. The silverside will be going in the big SC shortly and if I still feel up to it, I will be doing rice pudding this afternoon.

    Your post and the fact that coles has chocolates melts for under $2 which I find works better than the bars. Has put back on the fudge train.
    Hmm now to I make a cookies and cream or a white chocolate with maltesers (on special at woolies) fudge on to cook.
