Last week was Zack's "birthday week." You may be unfamiliar with this particular holiday - essentially it is the week surrounding his birthday (a hubby declared holiday) during which he spends a lot of time saying things like "It's my birthday week! I can eat this meat-stuffed-with-cheese-wrapped-in-carbs-and-deep-fried if I want!" Which is all well and good, but after a week of eating heavy foods, I was looking forward to something a bit lighter. When Z suggested curry, I was all about it.
We used the recipe from Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes. The summary of this book says that it is about putting "delicious plates of food on the table in no time." Maybe we're just not as fast as a professional chef, because the minutes ended up exceeding an hour and the kitchen pretty much looked like it had exploded by the time we were done. That aside, the curry was delicious!
