Warming Joy

 
At the Simple Living classes this weekend, I enjoyed learning how to make some hearty supper dinners for the family. Our teacher was very kind and helpful in showing us how to make her dinners. By the end of the lesson I was confident with taking home some knowledge about both meals and know I can do them comfortably myself at home.
 
 
Potato Bake:
 
Potato peeled. Onion. Ham or Bacon. Thickened cream. Grated cheese.

Thinly slice potatoes, onions and set aside. Dice ham and set aside.

Assemble into small casserole dish and place layers of potatoes on bottom of dish. Then sprinkle onion, ham and repat layering. Pour over thickened cream and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake in oven at 200 degrees for about 35 mins or when potatoes are tender.


 
Curry Base:

Oil. Onion, carrot, potato. Frozen peas. Stock. Creamy evaporated milk. Cornflour. Sausages (or whatever you like).  

Peel carrot and cut thinly. Dice onion and potato. Heat pan and add oil in pan. Cook sausages. Remove from heat and set aside. Add oil and heat then add onions, carrots, and potatoes until vegetables are tender. Stir in curry power, add combined water and stock, add peas, and bring to boil. Return meat to pan, add combine evaporated milk and cornflour. Bring to boil and stir until thickened.


 

There’s nothing more enjoyable than learning about simple home cooked, comforting warm meals on a windy cold day.  And then taking both meals home for supper to enjoy, one for the day and one saved for the next day. Lovely.
