Decided to get the all in one.  This one has a sous vide setting.  I know folks who are just sold on that technique of cooking.  I haven't been on board as I like hands on and mostly cooking with fire when it comes to steaks.  BUT this is supposed to make it easy to make a.top.round (cheaper cut/lower fat) super tender as it is very slow and low cooking.  We shall see.  Anyone have one?  Or anyone do the sous vide thing?  Tell me what you think, please.  I am thinking it is a hipster fad.  OK with that if it actually works.

I had a pressure cooker in my 20s I never felt happy using it. I did buy a slow cooker this year, haven't got around to using it yet. My appetite has been off recently and some sleepless nights too.

On top of that I've had a funny tummy for a couple of days.

I had a prawn cocktail earlier and I think that went straight through me.

Going to try a Pizza next and salad.

Sorry to hear (read) you are feeling bad, @KOMMA   Hopefully that is just a passing (pun intended) thing.  Making pizza dough now for dinner.  Have leftover rotisserie chicken from last night and a chicken pizza sounds just about fantastic right now.  It may not in a few hours, but have already committed to it.  Ha!  I was waiting for @Frigg  to chime in about the sous vide, but whatever.....asshole.  
Am a big fan of the pressure cooker.  I inherited mine from my mom.  It is good for more than stew.  That's what most think of.

My meat pizza was reduced to 35pence at the supermarket and due to a sleepness night I don't have the energy to cook my own tonight.

I'm having an advocaat with extra brandy to settle my stomach and if that don't work I shall have to have Greek yogurt for breakfast. Then cook a soup with pearl barley.

I've just had a coffee and a small donut. I've had an allergic reaction too going on as I put on some make-up last week. I think it's the eye shadow so shall throw that out. Although I can also have an allergic reaction if I have too much bread. It usually only lasts a few days.

For sure, I only do chuck roasts, pork butts, etc.  Chicken thighs do well in a recipe like this....and oh man the flavor.... https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015...ecipe.html

I like chicken thighs best part of the chicken.

Me too. Great minds and all that stuff. I used to only cook chicken breast because that is my gal's thing. Now I do as it is lower fat and that is kind of a thing I am having to learn to embrace with necessary diet choices. I do have a preference for the dark meat.

I didn't get time to eat that pizza last night.

Tummy is better today, not 100% though.

So I've had another small donut.

Going to try some more proper food now I've had some a couple of Advocaats and brandy with tonic.

I think the advocaat is making my tummy better.

I found some brussels cooked in honey and oats in the grill that had been cooked in the oven and they taste lovely.

Sometimes I cook food and then forget about it, far too busy.
