    I gave up on my slow cooker, I had thought I was going to get amazing casseroles, curries and soups.

    Never really produced anything that wasn't as good or better from the oven. Though that may be down to my skill rather than the cooker!
    It isn't, there is a very very good reason pressure cookers aren't popular! They turn stuff to tasteless mush.
    Pressure cookers != slow cookers

    Meat comes out amazing in a slow cooker - so tender as to fall apart on your fork. Only trouble is it's a bit of a pain to make sure you don't poison yourself (slow cookers don't get hot enough to kill bacteria, so you need to seal the meat in a hot pan first) and frankly I don't have the time in the morning to prepare my evening meal. Also I don't believe in making stews in anything less than olympic quantities, and my slow cooker is just too small. Stew = prepare once, eat like a king for days.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    When you say "some mix", you're referring to flour, milk and an egg right?
    I think he was referring to Irish men, whisky and water.

    In my student days I cooked some right horrors;

    undercooked sausages & rice with 'chicken tonight' sauce
    moldy pasta sauce with hard pasta
    stir fry noodles without veg or meat (only soy sauce)
    microwaved pork steak with hard jacket potato

    ...i'm surprised i'm not dead

    I think one that really stands out in my mind is the time I decided potato and cauliflower soup would be great... And maybe it would but what I actually made was liquid mash and cauliflower. Dusgusting!

    Potentially bookmarking this. I've got a lazy Ken Hom ready meal planned for tonight (wife out), upside is a fridge full of beer and a horror bluray.

    Anyone a fan of Homs? ;)

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I remember getting a mix of beans in a pot that i was going to make into a thai curry. Spent all my money on prawns, those beans, sauce and nice rice.

    Whatever was in those wretched beans made the meal smell like old socks and tast like soapy water with a hint of B.O. Couldn't finish, due to it being minging so I fucked it out the window to feed the pigeons.I ended up sleeping for a solid 24 hours and waking up the next day to see a dead pigeon on top of what was left of the curry.

    Heh, good times.

    I don't think I've ever cooked something so bad it could kill wildlife. That's impressive!

    Were they the sort of beans that ought to be soaked for eight hours prior to cooking by any chance?

    I once had a meal that was potatoes, chips, pizza bread and salad. I poured too much salt on too.

    It was carb central, and made me feel sick.

    @THFourteen pizza, chips and beans. you're missing out.

    As for my horrible dinner, made one last night. Was supposed to be chicken arrabiata with penne and cheesetopped garlic bread.

    It started going wrong when i realised i'd got turkey thighs rather than breasts.

    then i left the pasta in too long.

    then i left the plastic colinder draining the pasta into a saucepan... this is where it goes horribly wrong;

    i forgot to turn the heat off, came back 5 mins later to find the colinder melted into the pan and the pasta stuck too it :(

    to top it off the garlic bread got burnt on top and was left cold and soggy on the bottom.

    not my finest meal.

    Nasty dinner earlier. Morrissons Pepperonni pizza. Tasted like plastiscine. I kept this to myself but my youngest confirmed it by saying his tasted like playdough.

    Made a pad Thai last night. Put in a tablespoon of shrimp paste rather than the stated teaspoon. I'm still emitting fish odour today because I ate it all, workhorse that I am.

    Indeed.

    What is it with these supposed ready made naan breads? On what planet do they taste anything like authentic naan?

    They're not so bad if you give them a liberal sprinkling under a running tap before baking.

    I just buy naans from my local kebab shop when I need them for homemade curries. Usually get 2 for a quid.

    We had pizza for tea.
    Papa John's \o/
    Trouble is, my baby is currently possessed by the clingy insomnia demon, so I got to stuff 2 slices down my neck before a 2 hour exorcism commenced, leaving me with indigestion and cold pizza :( That was pretty horrible.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Cold pizza can work.

    Stick it in the fridge and crack out the salad cream.
