Tonight I cooked..........

I have never been one to criticise your (excellent) food, but surely you could have done better than medium sliced white bread?
Au contraire

I don't get on with brown, wholemeal or seeded breads. Besides white bread is best for toast, well after soughdough that is.

We buy just one loaf a week, toast for the current mrs_mush's breakfast, bread for the soup we have twice a week and a banjo at the weekends.

Home made soup with white bread, lathered with unsalted french butter, then sprinkled with Maldon salt - delicious.

Shin beef stew in the slow cooker, getting a good 8 hours today then resting overnight and reheated for tea tomorrow.

Didn't mean to come across as a bread nazi. Each to their own.
Soup looks fabulous btw

I use whatever bread Farm Foods throws out along with some that Tesco sell off cheap, I've got several white bloomers, malted bloomers and seeded loaves in the freezer at the moment.

That looks really good, apart from the large amount of celery in there. That would put me off trying a spoonful.
I was using up what was left so there is more in there than I'd normally use, having said that by the time it's had 8 hours then stood over night and then reheated for another 4 or 5 hours with more veg and mushrooms added you won't be able to taste the celery and it will have cooked away to virtually nothing.
 
'IN THE BEGINNING':
Mixed veg from Lidl and a tin of anchovies, add anchovies, all contents of tin and stir, put in a hot oven for at least 30 minutes.

I was hungry, so I threw a prime rib eye in the wok...

And turned it into Seolleongtang.
 
Now then, need a bit of collective wisdom.
Muggins here has a slow cooker that we use fairly regularly. Getd put away after it gets scrubbed clean and all that mullarkey. Twice of late it developed a blue mould inside the ceramic pot after storage. Twice scrubbed to buggery as a result. Today, after being stored in clean dry surroundings....blue mould.
Any idea why this is and would a bleach wash help ?

Are you sure it's mould and not staining? If it is mould is the pot being stored with the lid on?

Oh it's deffo mould, blue penicillin type.
Pot stored with lit on ( albeit upside down )

My only guess is that there are mould spores in some tiny cracks in the ceramic glaze and being stored with the lid on is trapping enough moisture for the mould to grow. It's probably worth giving it a soak in bleach, drying and leaving with the lid off for a while to see if the mould grows back.
 
Cleaned out the fridge. So it was “Fridge salad” for lunch. Blackened chicken, egg, artichoke heart, lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumber, red onion and celery.

Italian dressing applied and mushed up a bit:

Or trapped in the seal and/or lid handle. Or possibly in the cupboard where it is kept.
