Slow cooking...

This lovely book arrived in the mail yesterday - I'll be trying out some new recipes soon. We've had a real cold snap with some rain too so it will be nice to come home to a tasty meal, already to go.
I've been a bit slack with my Photoaday challenge - some topics are quite hard to get a picture of plus finding the time...
I've been hard at it with this dish cloth... can anyone spot the boo boo? I obviously purled instead of plained a long row of stitches.. oh well, it didn't throw the pattern out too much! I have about 4 more patterns to do then I am done!
I thought these products were worth mentioning. I love the EcoStore dishwash liquid - lemony and it washes well. We have been using the hand wash for a while now and (I dilute it to make it go a bit further - don't tell Gus!) and I have just bought the dish tabs ($10 for 30!) and they seem to do a really good job - no streaks or sediment left behind. They also do laundry detergent and stain soaker but I am good in that department at the moment. The jury is still out on the homemade laundry liquid - I think it's okay for underwear and towel loads but I use commercial detergent for other loads.
Wet, wild and wooly here today so I had better go get rugged up to go off to work! Stay warm!
Cheers - Joolz


  1. Love the unusual pattern on your dishcloth Joolz! And no I cant see the mistake :)


  2. Good luck with the book Joolz. I have made a couple of the beef stews and they were great!

  3. Hi Joolz
    Please pop over to my blog I have something to give you

    ps. I won't be offended if you do not wish to accept :o)

  4. You are doing well with all your dishcloths and the bamboo/cotton is great. I can spot the little mistake but that is what we have over machines and they are then unique:0)
    I love slow cooking stews and that book looks good.
    I haven't tried those products but will now.
