"Oh I would never dream of assuming I know all Hogwarts' secrets, Igor," said Dumbledore amicably. "Only this morning, for instance, I took a wrong turning on the way to the bathroom and found myself in a beautifully proportioned room I have never seen before, containing a really rather magnificent collection of chamber pots. When I went back to investigate more closely, I discovered that the room had vanished. But I must keep an eye out for it. Possibly it is only accessible at five-thirty in the morning. Or it may only appear at the quarter moon - or when the seeker has an exceptionally full bladder."Harry snorted into his plate of goulash. Percy frowned, but Harry could have sworn Dumbledore had given him a very small wink.- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Chapter 23 (The Yule Ball)
So last night I made Portobello and White Bean Goulash from Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker by Robin Roberston, the recipe can be found here. It was good. I seem to have a love hate relationship with the slow cooker in theory it's amazing however in practice it tends to be meh. I've had a few recipes completely flop(bland) but then when I made the SAME recipe on the stove top or in the oven it's magic or at the very least WORLDS better. I wish I'd bought one of her other books to be honest the recipes I've made have all be okay-good, where as the ones I've made from the internet have been much better. I did say love hate so let me explain I LOVE using it to cook dry beans. That said it's a me thing this simply isn't the way I prefer to cook.
