The highlight of the day is always dinner. I made this slow cooker beans and eggs earlier in the slow cooker that morning and by dinner time it was ready. I feel almost embarrassed about how easy this is given how fabulous it tastes. It's just a matter of emptying some tinned beans, sauces and chorizo sausage into a slow cooker and turning it on. Just before you serve it, you turn the slow cooker up to high and then add the eggs in. It transforms into the easiest, most delicious shakshuka or breakfast/dinner egg dish you can imagine. I urge you to give this a go if you are short of time or bed bound. Mr NQN immediately requested it for another night after slurping up two bowls of it.
They always say that men make the worst patients when sick but I have to say that I'm up there with the worst of them too. Despite the fact that I am told to lie in bed, I succumb immediately to dramatic bouts of boredom. When I was sick with the flu recently I had my computer and Netflix to keep my company but there is only so much television that you can watch. My schedule went a little like this:
10am: Put dinner in the slow cooker. Watch a few episodes of Orange is the New Black.
11:30am: Make lunch. Get scolded for leaving bedroom and scuttle back into bed.
12pm: Watch episodes of "Keeping up with the Kardashians"
2pm: Take a nap. I dream that I am now a member of the Kardashian family and they have changed my name to Klorraine Kardashian" and I have to show off my bum in a bikini a lot. Dream has transformed into a nightmare...
7pm: Dinner time. Bliss. Something to do.
8pm-midnight: Read a book.
Midnight to 3am: awake, of course having slept for much of the day.
So tell me Dear Reader, are you a good patient? Do you cook dinner when you are sick or does someone else or do you order in? And when sick how do you pass the time?
