I got a slow cooker for Christmas last year. I’m usually anti-having another huge appliance in the kitchen (read: NO Thermomix!) but I’d been sold by the promise that a slow cooker would answer all the big questions in life. The main one being of course: how do I get huge output with as little input as possible? Because that question applies to every single facet of life, amiright??

There’s this show on TV at the moment called This Is Us. Have you seen it? It started playing on free-to-air here in Australia probably three months ago. I stumbled upon it purely by accident (believe me, I do not watch TV at night because I’m usually in bed as early as humanly possible but that guy that plays Kevin is kinda hot and so is Peter Petrelli that actor Milo whatever the dad on the show) a month or so ago and oh my god you guys, it is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

I try and get fish into them at least once a week, and my go-to dishes (which I know they’ll like) are either steamed barramundi with ginger & black bean sauce, or salmon & sweet potato patties. Last night I tried a new one on them – baked honey soy salmon.
