So earlier today I planned on making 2 meals with one frozen, I took the meat out last night to defrost and then started tidying the kids bedrooms this morning…come 4 o clock I still hadn’t started with my slow-cooker meals so we popped down to the supermarket for a pie *Oopsie* However I did redeem myself by prepping both meals.
One I found was on a Facebook group and called Jamie’s Turkey Chilli Con, it is currently all ready in my slow cooker ready to be turned on in the morning.
Making this however was not fun – mainly because it requires the juice of two limes. I used by handheld manual juicer thingy and managed to knock it, lime juice went everywhere including my eyes. I cried a little, threw a mini tantrum and told my boyfriend to continue whilst I washed my eyes out…and cried more.
The second was from a cookbook and is Thai Chicken Meatball Curry, however like my Butter Chicken practice recipe that went so wrong this also needs some prior cooking, Once the meatballs are rolled they need browning off before being added to the slowcooker. I chose to cook the meatballs all the way through to allow me to freeze them, then defrost and add to the slow cooker (with additional ingredients) on Saturday night.
I shall report back tomorrow evening on the Turkey Chilli Con
