That's your standard lettuce in Denmark, if you don't specify. Probably the same in GB.

Katy, we make loads of different Butter Chicken recipes from scratch, but the Korma is a Pataks simmer sauce...they really are delicious and time saving

We love our curries too Katy!

We have a fave Indian restaurant that we got to quite often, delicious food

Really hot here today, but we are fortunate to have a heat pump, which affords us A/C. So heating up the kitchen wasn't really an issue. I again had no clue what we would have for dinner, but I had some ground beef and spiced ground sausage that I wanted to use. I started thinking about how my mom frequently used elbow macaroni for her "spaghetti". (Lol!). So I made a sort of modified version. I sautéed onion red and green pepper and garlic in some olive oil, added 1/2 lb. of ground beef and 1/2 lb. of spiced ground pork, I seasoned with garlic powder Italian seasoning, and parsley. When the meat was browned, I tossed in a couple of chopped Roma tomatoes that needed to get used and two cans of stewed tomatoes, I happened to have some V8 juice ( 12oz can) so I dumped that in then I added about 3/4 lb. of elbow macaroni (uncooked) turned the heat down to simmer until the pasta was cooked and the liquid absorbed. Served with green salad and a glass of wine. Not gourmet....but not bad!

Tonight we had chickpeas, tomatoes, sweet onion, cucumber, black olives, red bell pepper, etc. in whole wheat pitas with a yogurt/cumin dressing.

MY FIL used to do that a lot. He also stripped the corn then rinsed and wrapped with plastic wrap, then nuked it. That works too, but watch your fingers when you go to unwrap.

That's how I used to do it too. This time, I used damp paper towels, worked great.

Many years ago I read that you could nuke them in their husks. So, I stuck some corn cobs, husks and all, in the nuker. They shoulda mentioned that you should take the corn silk off before nuking. I couldn't get the silk off without burning my fingers until the corn was cooler than I wanted for eating.

But it worked fine when I stripped off the silk first and folded the husk back over the corn.

Well color me confused when I logged on this morning. That thread merge made my head spin. Here I thought there were a whole lot of lazy folks like me, I got sort of excited there for a minute. LOL! Nope, just the usual dinner action.

Sorry to have confused folks, I wasn't trying to compete, just trying to talk about our lazy cooking habits when its too hot to do much moving.
