A few weeks ago, I came home from work to the most delicious smells in the kitchen – Jac had cooked us an Indian-style dinner. I’ve said “Indian-style” as Jac made no claims to its authenticity, having had help from jars! It was great, though! She made a chicken curry and a vegetable curry, and […]
Without planning to, I had curry three days in a row! The night before Jac made a Thai green curry with fish, eggplant, zucchini and peas. She didn’t cook the fish in the curry; she panfried a couple of fish fillets, placed the fish on top of the rice, and spooned the curry over the […]
