Butter Chicken

Midweek is upon us yet again, and its the perfect time for an easy tasty meal that’s going to leave lots of left overs. Tonight’s midweek meal is a curry, a family friendly curry at that. It’s Butter Chicken! Yeah yeah you probably already knew that since you clicked the link but let me live a little.

The nice thing about this butter chicken is once you get past caramelising the onion (which is a must because it adds just the best flavour and depth to the meal) its really just a matter of chucking it all in the pot and walk away. There’s not a million and one spices you have to worry about, and if you have made just about any curry in the past you probably already have the spices needed.  So give it a try and let me know what you think!

Prep time – 10mins, Cooking time – 40mins, Serves 4

One Pot Cottage Pie

A great comfort food that will give loads of left overs, this cottage pie is especially great in the winter time. I however am a crazy person and have made it smack bang in the middle of summer. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

This is a great pie to make when you have lots of left over vegies that just need to be eaten. With a cheesy potato-y top, it’s a sure fire way to get kidlets to eat their vegies!


Prep time 15 mins, Cooking time 50 mins, Serves 8 – 10
