I have a bag of Aldi frozen prawns to use (a bit more space in the freezer), the remaining mange tout and mushrooms, as well as a tin of coconut milk – a couple of spoons of Green Thai curry paste and dinner will be ready in minutes.

I start by peeling and dicing a small onion and gently frying it in a pan,

when translucent add 2/3 spoons of the curry paste and stir.

Add the tin of coconut milk, reduce by a third then add the chopped Veg and then the raw prawns and just before serving a handful of chopped coriander.

When cooked through, serve on rice, I am using a Aldi micro pack of bulgar wheat and quinoa, and enjoy.

We are having Prawn crackers and some Aldi Chinese vegetable parcels for an additional bit of crunch πŸ˜‹

I like this curry very wet, almost soup like- yummy πŸ˜‡

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
