- they don't always seem welcome at the time, but I try to make the most of them! The cooker went out yesterday morning; bit grumpy, as I couldn't make tea.... I did however, take the opportunity to give a good clean behind and around, which is difficult and dangerous when it's belting the heat out. So it was out with the scrubbing brush, and an hour later, nice and clean, raked through, emptied, relaid and re-lit.
It had heated up well by supper time, so I took the opportunity to roast some vegetables in the fast oven - couple of different squashes, plus some onions and a few carrots from the basket; served it with couscous for a change, lovely meal, really enjoyed it.
