Day 17: Sunday Dinner

It was a dreary Sunday here in Pittsburgh.  Among other things, my day included: gray skies, a stuffy nose, kids who were tired of being stuck inside all weekend, and lots and lots of laundry.  So on a day like today, knowing that I'm getting one of my favorite meals for dinner, is awesome.  Something to look forward to at the end of the day.

A big favorite of mine is curry.  Specifically, The Husband's Curry.


So good.  Here's how to make it.

The Husband's Curry:

1 tbs. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tbs hot curry powder
2 bay leaves
1 14.5 oz. can of tomoatoes
1 13.5 oz. can of lite coconut milk
1 lb.  peeled and de-veined shrimp

Heat olive oil in a large pan.  Saute onion, pepper, and garlic in oil until soft.  Add curry powder, continue to saute for one minute.  Then add bay leaves, tomatoes, and coconut milk.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat.  Simmer for 30-40 minutes. Then add shrimp, and simmer for 5-10 more minutes, until the shrimp turns pink. Serves four.

Serve over rice, with a side of naan.  I like beer with mine.   


Yes.  Perfect way to end the weekend.
