All this decorating is not leaving much time for cooking so I wanted something simple for my evening meal last night. I was cooking a gammon last night for the rest of the family to have and the remainder for sandwiches for the week. I wanted something filling and spicy so made a big pot of veg and lentil curry in my slow cooker for me. This made four large portions and is very cheap to make.
VEGETABLE AND LENTIL CURRY
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, grated
half a cauliflower, broken into florets
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
half a squash, peeled and chopped
2 potatoes, scrubbed and chopped
half a wrinkly pepper I had lurking : ) chopped
2 hot chillies, finely chopped
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp garam masala
2 veg stock cubes dissolved in 1litre hot water
salt & pepper to taste
Just chop all the veg and then throw it into a large pan or into the slow cooker and cook until the veg is tender. Use any veg you have available. This is a simple quick curry. Was lovely with some basmati rice.

Yesterday for my lunch I had some homemade leek and potato soup from the freezer. Never one to waste any food I also had with the soup some rice cakes topped with a little cream cheese and half a salmon fillet daughter No3 left from her meal on Sunday. Can't waste a good piece of salmon : )
Wanted another easy meal today with decorating so this lunchtime I popped all the ingredients into the slowcooker for a bolognese sauce and my lunch today was a bowl of lovely leftover curry, yum. Spaghetti bolognese and homemade garlic bread for tea.
