Pineapple Spiced Pork

A really flavoursome dinner that's ready in under 30 minutes. I usually serve with rice but noodles would also be good here.

A Very Good Day

Daughters in Bed, hubby is playing darts and I have a glass of wine in hand - perfect! I was going to write up a Soup recipe for you but 2 really good things have happened today that have changed my plan. The first is that my Job Evaluation results came back today, and despite a poor result initially, after a formal review my post has now been upgraded - which means 14 months of back pay (couldn't have come at a better time!) - although I am tempted to buy a new oven and digital camera (you'll see why in a minute) which would pretty much wipe the money straight away.

After this initial euphoria, I realised when I got home from work that I didn't have anything planned for Dinner. Fridge and cupboards were bare (got to go shopping tomorrow) and all I had was 2 chicken breasts, a sweet potato that had seen better days and some coconut milk - so, I decided to make a curry and it couldn't have turned out better (my second success of the day)! OH said it was one of the best curries he'd ever tasted - praise indeed from a man who really knows his curry!

Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry
1 onion, sliced
heaped tsp of Chilli flakes
2 chicken breasts, cubed
1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 can coconut milk
2 tbsp balti curry paste

1. Fry onion and chilli flakes for a few minutes
2. Add half can coconut milk and bring to simmer
3. Add curry paste and mix in
4. Add other half of coconut milk
5. Add sweet potato and chicken
6. Simmer for approx 20 minutes until sweet potato tender and chicken cooked through
7. Serve with Rice and Naan Bread

It was a bit hot for my daughter so she demolished the naan bread instead!

My Wedding Cake ~ 12 Days of Christmas

Hubby and I got married on the 29th December (2007) so we decided to theme the wedding around 'The 12 days of Christmas'. Can you spot the deliberate mistake on the cake?
