Well I never follow recipes lol.. and I admittedly cheat and use pre-made green curry paste to start the sauce. Here's my approximate recipe:

1-2 T (or more, to taste) Green Curry Paste
1 Can coconut milk (not coconut cream!)
1 t fresh grated ginger (if you don't want to grate it, just peel it, smash it and cook it with the sauce, and remove before eating)
1 t lemon zest
1 t lime zest
Fresh chopped basil leaves
Veggies cut bite sized
(Meat cut bite sized if you like, I'm a vegetarian so I don't eat it..)

Fry the curry paste in your wok with a bit of oil for a few minutes, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until thickened. At the end, add the basil leaves.

Usually I stir fry the veggies in a seperate pot (zucchini, onion, eggplant, tomato, butternut squash), and then stir in once the sauce is done.

Pour a spoonful over some steamed white rice, and enjoy!!

It was ridiculously good. I love how some of the best meals are made very simply. The secret ingredient: Several hours in the crock pot :-D

How about Welsh rarebit?

A real Welsh version of rarebit that is made with sharp Cheddar cheese and fresh thyme. Simple, and delicious! Garnishes are almost endless, from poached eggs, to sliced tomatoes, to pickled onions and piccalilli, to bacon. Really, put anything you think would taste good with toast and cheese on there, and tuck in.

Ingredients
225g (8 oz) grated sharp Cheddar or other hard/sharp cheese
2 tbsp English mustard
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of bread

Preparation method
1. Preheat the oven grill.
2. Combine cheese, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper in a pot over low heat or in a double boiler. Melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth.
3. Spread mixture on bread, and heat under the grill for about 1 minute and serve, or spread on toasted bread and eat immediately.

Bon appetite

Ha, sorry, I missed the request!

Nothing to it really. I'll start from the beginning.

I put the game bird in the crock pot, and cut up a bunch of celery, onions, potatoes and garlic and poured them around the bird. There was enough stuff to come up about level with the top of the bird. Then I added a few cups of water. Finally, I poured a generous helping of various leafy spices on top of the bird, and started the crock pot. 8 hours later I could serve the bird with a spoon.

After the meal, I removed all the bones and left many good chunks of chicken in the broth. I put the whole crock pot in the fridge and went to bed.

Next morning I put the crock pot back on its base and started it up. I cut up about 8 potatoes and put them along with another cup of water in the stock and stirred it up. If you like your soup thicker, you'd prolly leave this water out. I probably added some salt, but I don't remember for sure.

Another 8 hours later I had a chunky potato soup. For a more traditional potato soup you would mash the potatoes a bit.

nothing to it

Calm down Shaun........lol.

Sikki....I must have glanced too fast, thought you were putting out a recipe for Welsh RABBIT I was thinking....eeeeewww! LOL..... but then I did not see the poor, floppy-eared, fuzzy guy in the recipe.......
The Rarebit sounds very interesting, I will give that a try for sure. Swede? Black pudding? You lost this dumb a$$ American on that!!

Thanks for the recipe Goat.......great ideas for a cold winter day!!!!

We will be by TB.........just let us know what and when. I will NOT be there on liver and onions day.
