I'm making curry sausages and while I was reading posts I could smell the aroma through the house.
So I thought I'd share this very simple and delicious recipe.

Boil sausages for 20 mins to get the fat out.
Drain.
Put back in boiler with string beans, carrots, sultana's which give it a sweet flavour. Or any veg's are optional.
Boil up, adding as much curry powder as you would like to tamper with. curtsey
Simmer for an hour.
To thicken, simply add a couple of tablespoons of Plain Flour, but make sure you stir it in well.

Serve onto mash potato and bon apetite.

Already one son is not sure about eating the curry, as it smells too hot.
I haven't even dished it up yet!

Here is one for a lazy day

Cider Pork Stew (serves 8 )

Ingredients
2 pounds pork, shoulder roast
3 medium potato(es), cubed (about 2 1/2 cups)
3 medium carrot(s), cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 medium onion(s), sliced
1 medium apple(s), cored and coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1/2 cup(s) celery, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoon tapioca, quick-cooking
2 cup(s) juice, apple
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black ground
celery leaves, optional

Preparation
1. Cut meat into 1-inch cubes. In a 3 1/2- to 5 1/2-quart slow cooker, combine meat, potatoes, carrots, onions, apple, celery, and tapioca. Stir in apple juice or cider, salt, caraway seeds, and pepper.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours. If desired, garnish individual servings with celery leaves.


or here is a quicker one (20 mins) and is my brothers favourite

Mexican Lasagna (serves 4)

Ingredients
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds ground chicken breast, available in the packaged meats case
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
1 cup medium heat taco sauce or 1 (14-oz) can stewed or fire roasted tomatoes
1 cup frozen corn kernels
Salt
8 (8 inch) spinach flour tortillas, available on dairy aisle of market
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar or shredded pepper jack
2 scallions, finely chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil - twice around the pan. Add chicken and season with chili powder, cumin, and red onion. Brown the meat, 5 minutes. Add taco sauce or stewed or fire roasted tomatoes. Add black beans and corn. Heat the mixture through, 2 to 3 minutes then season with salt, to your taste.
Coat a shallow baking dish with remaining extra-virgin olive oil, about 1 tablespoon oil. Cut the tortillas in half or quarters to make them easy to layer with. Build lasagna in layers of meat and beans, then tortillas, then cheese. Repeat: meat, tortilla, cheese again. Bake lasagna 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly. Top with the scallions and serve.

I've experimented many times with garlic cloves. I just use two teaspoons of the jar stuff.

Mine was still yummy because I don't mind too much the garlic  but it could have been better, next time I will put less garlic and parmesan cheese and more basil.
