Additions to tabs, book sales & tea

Just to let you know that February additions have been made to the War Diary Year II and Seasonal Food tabs above. Enjoy reading.Oh and I have sold another 3 study books, making a total of 4 so far!
I recently bought a pack of 6 thin pork chops and have thawed 2 for tea. Now, not being so big means they have to have stuff added to them. I hope to get two meals out of these little chaps, in the form of curry & rice for tonight then left over curry & chips for tea for another night.

After finely slicing both chops plus 1 onion, I sautéed them then added 1 heaped tablespoon curry paste. 3/4 pint pork stock had a good squirt of garlic puree and an even large squirt of tomato paste added before it went in with the meat. This was left to simmer for 1 hour. I then added 1/2 large diced courgette, 2 carrots, 6 mushrooms, 1/2 pepper and some sultanas. Finally, I added 1 heaped tablespoon mango chutney, a tin of chick peas then thickened with a little cornflour. We had two ladles each tonight.

There were 4 ladles left over for another night.

 All in all, a pretty cheap 4 meals!
