This is what I do with leftovers:
Mix shredded carrots, cabbage, onions and mushrooms with a cup of mashed potatoes and curry powder, spread thinly onto an oiled cookie sheet or skillet then bake in a hot oven until crisp and golden. Top with hot sauce or salsa and fresh cilantro.
Throw in your pressure cooker:
-Chicken legs and thighs
-1 large diced onion
-6 cloves of garlic
-2 cups chicken broth
-1 tablespoon grated ginger
-1 tablespoon grated lemongrass
-Juice of 2 limes
-4-6 hot Thai chilies
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-1 teaspoon ground coriander
-a pinch of salt
Set to high pressure and cook for one hour. Let depressurize naturally (takes about 10 minutes).
Add 1 diced red pepper and 1 can of coconut milk, adjust seasoning if needed and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with a handful of fresh cilantro and basil.
I’m not a dessert person but when I do indulge in a sweet treat I want it to be lemon flavored. I made this wonderful tart a few weeks ago and have been dreaming about it ever since. If I remember correctly I loosely followed this recipe.
Here are a few photos from our last BBQ party of the season.

So much has happened over the last few months yet my blog has remained untouched. I have a folder filled with fun photos just sitting on my desktop waiting to be edited and posted but this constant heat is making me incredibly lazy.
