Well after much research, thanks girls for your advice i joined the cult. I was hesitant, there is something about eating food that's been cooking all day that grosses me out. i like my food fresh and not quite cooked ( still crunchy) so we compromised a SC and salad for me.
Conor loves the SC and is getting quite good at cooking dinner, when he remembers to turn it on that is - otherwise it's a very slowcooker indeed; but after only 3 days of cooking with it i have enough food for a month LOL
Here's Conor with my answer to the battle of wills that is developing in this house over chores.
if it doesn't work i will abandon all hope and run away. Here's the thing why is it called abandonment if i leave home and running away if Conor leaves.
Ok am off to bed, yeah i know it's the middle of the day but new meds are making me feel queasy
