Hello Dear Reader,
Sometimes, you’ve got to save a quid! I try to use my slow cooker and my mini-oven instead of my gas cooker or main electric oven. I have a wall mounted energy monitor and I hate seeing my money disappear so I do everything I can to use as little energy as possible. Today, we treated ourselves to a small joint of brisket which requires a very gentle slow roast. I made our supper at 5.30 this morning and at 5.30 tonight, we were eating lovely shredded slow roasted beef. There’s enough for the next couple of meals as well. Why not try a week of slow cooking and check your meter to see how much energy you’ve saved. Using my slow cooker is one of the many ways I save electricity. I only have eco bulbs, I have nothing on stand by, I have no tumble drier, I only have one light on in the one room I am in, I don’t put the lights on until I can’t see, we use the slow cooker, I use my mini oven. In fact, I do everything I can to use as little energy as possible.
Are you with me on this one?
