this morning we took thehobbit to the hardware store to choose things for his birthday prezzie. he has a wooden kitchen set, & for his birthday has asked that we a) put taller legs on the pieces, & 2) finish the dang set! i am horridly ashamed to admit that we built it 4 years ago, & never put in shelves, knobs, a sink spout...
we bought everything we needed, with the exception of magnet paint for the front of the fridge. $20 for a dinky can?! he can continue to use tape.
i'll take before & after photos. yes i will. stop it!
day 2 :: cook enough to last 3 days.
2 large potatoes, cut into large cubes
1/2 brown onion, diced
large can, tomatoes (diced, or pureed)
1/4c thick coconut milk
1c chopped spinach (thaw if frozen)
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1-2tbs olive oil
1tsp ground cumin
1tbs curry powder
1tsp ground tumeric
salt & pepper
1) put everything into the crockpot. (the coconut milk is to cut the heat, & give the kid extra calories. you can omit it, or add it to individual bowls at serving.)
2) add enough water to cover potatoes.
3) set the crock to its specifications.
4) serve over basmati rice.
** notes: you can mess around with spice amounts to get the taste you prefer. you can also add other veggies. we like carrots, cauliflower, zucchini, & mushroom too. double everything if you have a large crockpot, & family.**
before i leave to poke about my fave blogs, i thought i should relieve any concerns you may have for me. yes, i did buy soycreamer (6 of them) today, & yes i had a gigantic cup of liquid, java love. all is as it should be.
