The weather has been pretty miserable as of late, so I've been taking the opportunity to take advantage of our favourite comfort meals. As my baby decided to actually take a nap for longer than ten minutes, I found myself with some spare time (that's a once in a blue moon moment when you're a parent). Rather than have the usual rush at dinner time of trying to prepare and cook dinner before the little, but very loud one lets us, and the neighbourhood know he's hungry, I thought I'd get the slow cooker out.
I'm pretty rubbish at remembering I have a slow cooker, despite the fact that every time I use it, I say 'I must do this more'. I love the ease of slow cooking and how the whole room just soaks up the aroma; literally making you count down the hours till dinner.
As part of their #ThankGoodness campaign, Britmums & Dolmio kindly sent us over some ingredients to help us out with creating a simple, good for you mid-week meal. I opted to make our firm family favourite - Spaghetti Bolognese. I'd never thought of slow cooked bolognese before but I'm so glad I did, this recipe is really simple to make and it's absolutely delicious.
