My trusty slow cooker...got quite the workout over winter!

Slow cooker meals are a staple during winter...But now that the weather is warming up (here in Australia anyway!) what is everyone cooking / preparing for dinner?

The weather is not warming up for me as I'm in Ireland! :)

Though in Summer I prepare lots of salads etc. as I'm not as interested in hot food.
I cook a lot of BBQ meat to serve with salad or flat bread. I don't normally use my slow cooker in summer, but this year am trying to eliminate using the oven which heats my whole house up. Slow cookers dont give off much heat at all. I've found some great slow cooked recipes online like lasagne, meatloaf etc. So will try those out.
I don't really change what I cook according to the seasons, I just don't make as much soup as I do in the winter time.

I am doing a Lot of mixed veg dishes, we are on a health kick, well I am.
Next Monday will be 12 weeks, and loosing weight really nicely. :)
So something like in the pic I have left, and a few other different ones.
Nothing much changes, just that will increase intake of yogurt to keep the body cool.
I'm having a little trouble with the change of weather...I LOVE my slow cooker because it is do darn easy. I can put dinner on while the kids are having their nap and then not have to worry about it! But it is just too hot here in Cairns for big hot meals and I am really craving salads...which take a lot more prep. I'm loving a quickly grilled piece of meat (fish, chops or steak) and salad at the moment.
I am cooking the same as I was in winter though I am not eating soup which I did.

It is not yet hot enough to have cold meals and fruit.

So I am cooking normal meals and actually do not change when summer comes -just perhaps have more salads than in winter.

Weather warming up? Where are YOU?
It's been warm here since Nov14 & still getting day temps in the 30's, so am NOT using crock-pot at all!
Usually, will start end of May, when I cook my soups from starters......Beef Consommé & Pea & Ham Soup. Thick crusty buttered bread.....yum!
