This will be the last of the winter slow cooker recipes.
I’m ready to put away the slow cookers and have mon mari get out the barbecue grills.
It’s his turn to cook.
I had a strange thing happen with this recipe…. It cooked dry. When I went to stir it after about 5 hours, it was dry. Not burning on the sides of the cooker dry, but dry. I added a cup of water and it turned out fine.
I didn’t change the recipe as I’m assuming I did something silly like not make sure the lid was on tightly. But, in case there is something wonky with the recipe I thought I should tell you.
Update: I reduced the tapioca to 1 tbs in the recipe.

I use tapioca as a thickener in slow cooker recipes. For me it works better than flour. You can add instant tapioca at the end, or cornstarch.

I was shopping today.
Online, again, of course.
This time I’m getting a new mobile phone / portable / cell.
If / when i lived in the US and I wanted to buy something, particularly something electronic, I would go to one of the electronic stores and talk to a tech person. The tech person would tell me a lot more than I needed or wanted to know,
Actually, I would go to several electronic stores and talk to several tech people.
Armed with this abundance of information and opinions, I would make my selection, more than likely spending more than I had anticipated.
Here I have to do all of that work myself.
First I have to determine a price range.
Then I have to figure out which of the bazillion makes of phone are worth looking at within that range.
Next come the review site comparisons – of which there are probably 10 that I trust and look at.
Once I get it narrowed down to a reasonable number, I compare features – and decide which features are more important than others.
When I get it down to just a few I start googling for personal opinions.
By this time my head is spinning and my fingers raw from typing.
I put all the possibilities in a hat and pick one.
Shopping is exhausting!
