Curry in a hurry

Another quick easy and oh so yummy in my tummy dish!

You will need (feeds 3-4)
500g chicken thighs
2 large brown onions
Ghee( olive oil is fine too)
1 can of chopped tomatoes
3 small potatoes
Mustard seeds
Ground coriander
Ground cardamom
S&P for seasoning
Lime juice

Chop n dice your onion and fry off. Add a teaspoon and a half off ALL the spices. Cook until aromatic. Add chopped thighs and cubed potatoes and stir until coated.
Throw in a can of tomatoes,add a splash of lime and a shake of brown sugar.Season to taste with salt n pepper. I prefer white pepper in curries. Depending on the thickness of the curry you made need to add a splash of water too.

Cook on a slow heat for at least an hour. Or in an oven proof dish on 180 degrees.
Serve with rice, mango chutney and papadums!

Super easy. Super tasty!

Killing me softly with your heart

Killing me softly ....

I admit I cry. I cry quietly because I can

I made the biggest decision of my life and it pains me daily. I moved interstate and left a child behind.

It's taken me a long time to write this one. I miss him like you wouldn't believe. My baby. My first born. My shining light.

Who leaves a child ? I did. Not by choice. He was old enough to make his own mind up. It didn't make it any easier though.

I find myself explaining that I have three boys. My eldest is not with me and it breaks my heart.

I spent many years where it was just me and him. Precious years picking up the pieces. He has grown into such a beautiful young man. A kind and gentle soul. A brilliant big brother. A friend.

I miss him. A lot .

Follow me..........

When my eldest was over from Adelaide on school holidays we decided to take the boys to the Zoo.

We love Zoo's and try to visit a Zoo where ever we travel. Seeing as we had just moved to Perth,this was an ideal time to see a new Zoo!

It is a very pretty Zoo with a lot of shady areas to walk around or to sit. There are also a lot of open area's that cater well if you decide to take a picnic.

We walked, we talked, we had ice cream.

My eldest  remarked afterwards. "I thought that was going to be lame. But it wasn't."

No indeed- time spent together is never lame ;)

My Boys :)
