Slow Cooked November Round Up - St Andrew's Day

Happy St Andrews Day!

Saltire at Wallace Monument, Stirling
At the end of November, what you really want is something warming to eat.  St Andrews Day falls on the 30th of November and the November Slow Cooked Challenge was all about warming dishes or dishes with a Scottish theme.

First up it's breakfast at Kevin's Crafty Larder with Slow Cooker Oatmeal, the perfect breakfast to come home to after early morning dog walking.

A Simple Beef Stew is the offering at Jo's Kitchen, it's an old fashioned stew with lovely suet dumplings, the gravy looks particularly rich and tasty.

Now we head across the channel to France and the kitchen of De Tout Coeur Limousin for a bit of chilli heat in this Thai Curry Pork Noodle Soup

Time for a little snack? I'm delighted to introduce Nasifriet and her entertaining blog By the Way. Slow Cooked Zesty Pumpkin Jam sounds amazing and is definitely going to feature on my post Halloween pumpkin cooking next year.

Beef is popular this month, let's hope it is Scotch Beef for St Andrews Day.  Anyway Beef and Vegetable Casserole looks like a lovely warming dish entered by Deon at Food Jam.

Venison is definitely associated with Scotland and Lucy at Baking Queen 74 has made a lovely warming Slow Cooker Venison Sausage Casserole with Borlotti Beans.

We interrupt this comfort food fest for a bit of a domestic!  You'll have to pop over to Lavender and Lovage to find out what was the cause of the temporary marital disharmony, while you are there you should bookmark the recipe for Sticky Christmas Marmalade Chicken.

A bowl and spoon is the recommended way to eat Bonfire Bangers, Pumpkin and Lentil Stew the bowl of comfort food from Dominic at Belleau Kitchen.

It's always nice to finish with a chocolately dessert, so thanks to Sarah of Tales from the Kitchen Shed for sharing these delicious looking Slow Cooker Individual Pear and Chocolate Puddings

Many thanks to all the entrants to the Slow Cooked Challenge, if you are looking for some more St Andrew's Day recipes you can find them St Andrew's Day Menu

The December challenge will be published on 1st December, so remember to come back and find out what the theme will be.

I am a huge fan of slow cooked oatmeal - but also excited by the selection of recipes as I would like to put my slow cooker to more use.
