Plus, if you’re a haphazard fool like us in the kitchen, you can’t go too wrong with it – just need to cut everything up, hoy it all in a pan and allow to simmer, then thicken with gravy. Get it made!

ah you two cubs and your contest. It’s taken me all day to tell myself that a soup-maker is cool but I’ll use it every day for about a fortnight then it’ll start gathering dust in my electronics cupboard.
Could you do this in the slow cooker? 🙂
